If you take all the little pieces
Before they take off with the wind
The air would never be the same if you could
Change its skin

But you're tired of trailblazing
Through the open yards where he's grazing
It's amazing how you're weather vane
Could change its name

God damn, it's difficult to get through
It's against what we're used to
And it don't no easier to
Please them, neither
Or you're way off to the south side
Push your heart off with a great stride
And it's better not to watch them sinking
When you say goodbye...

If you're watching the boats
Then you'll never grow old
If you're watching the boats
You'll never grow old,
But that's the way it goes.

Everyone is waiting
In this war that you are waging
For you to make your move, and prove that you
Are still alive.

I think you've been fighting
Against the silver lining
And every time you're home, you're always
All alone

If you're watching the boats
Then you'll never grow old
If you're watching the boats
You'll never grow old...
If you're watching the boats
Then you better go home...
If you're watching the boats
You'll never grow old,
But that's the way it goes.
