Capsized right away
Went down by the waves
Don't say we are so far away
I know that anyway, try to breathe

Cold winds blew away
All thing float away
Don't say God is so far away
I know that anyway, try to stay

Don't leave sight of me
Don't fight to the deed
Don't say home is so far away
That won't get you saved, hold to me

That won't get you saved, hold to me
That won't get you saved, hold to me

Hold on to my bare hand
Always I'll be your man
Hold on to my bare hand
Again we both shall stand
Hold on and swim to land
All this will come to pass
Hold on your slipping fast
Your lips my one demand

Hold on my night
Always I'll be your man
Hold on and swim to land
Again we both shall stand
Hold on to my bare hand
Always I'll be your man
Hold on your slipping fast
Your lips my one demand

Hold on and don't look back
Your ship has come at last

    General CommentI discovered Woodpigeon when he opened for Basia Bulat in Vancouver last night. Gorgeous set.
    I love this song so much, can't stop listening to it on his MySpace page (the live version with the full band).
    He's like a cross between Iron & Wine and Joshua Radin, and his voice is surprisingly high-pitched.
