"Worse Things Happen At Sea" as written by and Francis Edward Turner....
Honestly, relax my dear, it's clear that we are done
It doesn't take a scientist to figure out that one
It's obvious, the way you move, the way you hold your head
The way you hide your pretty eyes and shift across the bed

You say worse things happen at sea
I say worse things have happened to me

Honestly, I'll be fine, this isn't my first time
I've taken blows before and every time I have survived
You made it clear you didn't care, you never did pretend
And in the end, at least you never try to fuck my friends

You say worse things happen at sea
I said worse things have happened to me
Bitter eyes, the bedroom floor
And we're not gonna talk anymore

Well, honestly, it doesn't matter, I know better than
To cry over spilt milk, wasted effort, spoilt plans
We're adults here so shed no tears, I'm sure we can be friends
I'll nod and smile and watch you in the arms of other men

You say worse things happen at sea
I say worse things have happened to me
Bitter eyes, the bedroom floor
And we're not gonna talk anymore
We got nothing to talk for

Well, honestly, your honesty, it has emerged unscathed
And I hope you're doin' fine
Well, me, I'm doin fucking great
And I wouldn't want to waste another second of your time
I know your face, I know my place
So you watch yours, I'll keep to mine

They say worse things happen at see
I said worse things have happened to me
Bitter eyes, the bedroom floor
And we're not gonna talk anymore
We got nothing to talk for
You got nothing to be sorry for
I got no one to care for

This is the worst thing that's happened to me
I guess worse things happen at sea

    My InterpretationExcellent song. LOVE IT. And yeah, I think the "at least you never tried to fuck my friends" is supposed to be ironic.

    General CommentThis song just summed up my life. The only line that doesn't fit is "At least you never tried to fuck my friends"
    I only wish she had the taste to appreciate Frank Turner so she could hear this.

    I hope your doing fine, coz me I'm doing fuckin' great.

    General CommentThe way he sings "this is the worst thing that's happened to me" kills me.

    I probably couldn't have bared listening to this song a few months back.

    General CommentHe's said that this girl slept with his best friend, so I think the "at least you never try to fuck my friends" bit is either ironic or rejecting the guy she slept with.

    General CommentI love how you can hear in his voice how strong he is trying to be but you can tell that he's falling apart slowly.
    "And I hope you're doin fine, Well me I'm doin fucking great" - you can hear the painful sarcasm in his tone of voice and you can hear him falling apart here: "You got nothing to be sorry for, I got noone to care for"
