I never told you
How much I wanted you
I never held you in my arms
The way I wanted to
Now because of things I didn't say
When my ship sails away
The sky will be scarlet and grey

And it's hard to be so helplessly
Helplessly drawn to you
Now because of things I didn't do
Instead of standing with you
I will drift into scarlet and grey

And people need to tell each other how they feel
Before they go sailing away
My ship leaves today
Under dreary skies of scarlet and grey

To be so helplessly
Helplessly drawn to you
And now because of things I didn't do
Instead of standing with you
I will drift into scarlet and grey

And people need to tell each other how they feel
Before they go sailing away
My ship leaves today
Under dreary skies of scarlet and grey

Let 'em take me
Oh take me away.

    General Commentthis song is obviously about regretting something he didn't say to somebody he felt strongly about.

    the piano is so great in this one.
    love the echoed hand claps too
