Up late at night again
The clock's ticking me
Dragging me towards the morning
What would you rather be
The captain out at sea
Or the drunk man falling

I don't ever want to say goodbye
If I go first I'll tell you what its like
I'll always want to have you by my side
For all time

I try to write again
This pen's tricking me
Scratching lies like always
I turn off the light again
The silence pricking me
And then I'm gone till the morning

I don't ever want to say goodbye
But if I go first I'll tell you what its like
I'll always want to have you by my side
For all time

Alarm clocks pressgang me
Back to life
The Queen Of Snooze is rising
You know what you mean to me
I'm the captain drunk at sea
and you're the starlight falling

I don't ever want to say goodbye
But if I go first I'll tell you what its like
I'll always want to have you by my side
For all time

I'm never going to leave you by yourself
I know you'll get lonely if I'm not around
You'll need someone to help you get through
The good times

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a person I met on a cruise last summer. I will probably never see him again, but the idea it sparks is having feelings for a person the inevitably of endings and not wanting to experience them..
