My number came up today.
They're sending me across the waves.
I don't like the ocean
but I'm told that my emotions
tend to lead me astray.
Promise me you'll be my gal;
you'll send a post just once in a while.
You sleep beside my dirty clothes
and stay up every night just hopin'
I'll be OK.
I'll make it but...

All in all
It's all still the same.
I'm in love,
you're not coming back to me.
Hold me down.
Let the water run
over all I've done
'til I'm back in your arms again.

Hold the phone.
You say I make no sense.
OK, I'll back things up.
I'm droppin' all pretense.
But let me stop singin'
all I've done with you was in
the way of self-defense.
You see the worlds been kind,
but most time cruel.
And I've lived long enough
to know when I'm the fool.
Baby, if I'm going off to war
I gotta know exactly who I'm doin' it for.
So don't fake it.

All in all
it's all still the same.
I'm in love
you're not coming back to me.
Hold me down.
Let the water run
over all I've done
'til I'm back in your arms.

Oh, I'm lonely love, lonely love.
Let me know where you are.
Oh, I'll go there no matter how far.
I'll rise up from hell to your stars.
It must be love just because,
to die alone's not good enough.
It must be love just because,
to die for nothin's not good enough.
It must be love just because,
it's the only thing I'm sure of.

Do you remember when
we drove the car out west.
Was just you and me then.
I like those times best.
Would it matter baby if I said
I'd die to go back there again.
Would I pass your test.
Well girl, I'll take what I can get cause...

All in all
it's all still the same.
I'm in love.
You're not coming back to me.
Hold me down.
Let the water run
over all I've done
from the valley bowl
to the setting sun.
Let the people see
all that's meant for me;
that I was right for you
and you were right for me.
Take me from the guns.
Take me from the front.
Take me back in your arms again.
Back in your arms again.
Back in your arms again.
