Take a walk down the aisle
And grab a glimpse of the past
You can raise your sails, but rest assured
She will break your mast

She grew up long ago
And she aged so quick
Her hair turned gray
And she’s been old ever since

Keeping love at bay
Fades the winds away
And all she has left is her pain and her age

Her ears have gotten bigger
But she still can’t listen
She’s seen more leave than stay
But she would rather kill than christen

So take a good long look
And tell me what you see
Her anchors have been lowered
And she’s stranded herself at sea

Keeping love at bay
Fades the winds away
And all she has left is her pain and her age

How long will she run from me?
Love’s return I have yet to see
My heart breaks as she turns to leave
But when I roar she’ll come trembling
And she will always be with me
