There is a layer of clouds between me and you,
that block out the sun,
a thousand ways to break my heart,
but I’m stuck on one.

Shotgun my pleas to heaven,
deep down I know you’re there,
but tonight my heart is heavy.
I really need you here.

This is mine; I claim this.
Your promises sustain me.
Like captain bound to ship,
I’d rather sink than swim.

There are fifteen steps from here to my bed.
I’m so tired my vision is blurring.
Your voice rings clear in my head.
Tonight sleep will elude me.

Shotgun my pleas to heaven,
deep down I know you’re there,
but tonight my heart is heavy.
I really need you here.

These idols,
not of gold,
but of flesh and blood.
These idols,
oh I know,
they’ll break my heart.

I’d rather sink then swim.
