I came calling
One distant afternoon
Out on a long getaway
I know not why I picked up the phone.

You came to me as if in a dream
Said you felt a little feverish
We walked around the city together
To find you some needed relief.

And if everything wouldn't stay this way
For as long as it takes you
To get out from under the weather
Know that every passing second
My heart breaks
Because you'll never be getting better.

You came crawling
One fractured afternoon
And we both dried tears from our eyes

It was our hope fading
That kept us waiting
For a boat to take you off the shore
And back to your home

And in my hand are little scraps of paper
A shredded piece of blown out memory
That collapsed under the strain of sickness.

And if everything wouldn't stay this way
For as long as it takes you
To get out from under the weather
Know that every passing second
My heart breaks
Because you'll never be getting better.

Erin, the ocean is calling your name again,
We'd better hurry or you'll miss your ride

And if along the way the sun shines
Out from underneath this grey sky
Know that as long as you're keeping hope alive
I, too, will survive.
