A hollow metal arrow
Fell to the water
It must have come down from the blast
I gave it to you
And I watched as my sandcastle
Slowly was turned into glass

It lit up like a beacon
The shine was so strong
That it took me awhile to adjust
It took up my house
It split me apart
So I found a place on the grass

Fire away, I'm still here in phantom waves
Fire away, I still have my better days
Fire away, what more can I do but say
Fire away, fire away

A shallow river by the road
Soothe the tensions and turn them to skipping stone
And me by the shore
I noticed that day made me older than I was before
You say I'm too sad
Well I happen to like it, I happen to like you too

Fire away, I'm still here in phantom waves
Fire away, I still have my better days
Fire away, what more can I do but say
Fire away, fire away

Fire away, I know all your tricks and your
Foul play, it won't work on me anymore
Fire away, what more can I do but say
Fire away, fire away

    General CommentHm. Are these lyrics correct? Here's what I think I hear (similar, but a little different in places):

    a hollow metal arrow
    fell to the water
    it must have come down from the past
    I gave it to you
    and I watched as my sandcastle
    slowly was turned into gold

    it lit up like a beacon
    the shine was so strong
    that it took me awhile to adjust
    it took up my house
    it split me apart
    so I found a place on the grass

    fire away, I'm still here in phantom waves (or maybe "ways," I really can't tell)
    fire away, I still have my better days
    fire away, what more can I do but say
    fire away, fire away

    a shallow river by the road
    smoothed the tensions
    and turned into a skipping stone
    and me by the shore
    I noticed that day
    made me older than I was before

    you say I'm too sad
    well I happen to like it
    I happen to like you to

    fire away, I'm still here in phantom waves
    fire away, I still have my better days
    fire away, what more can I do but say
    fire away, fire away

    fire away, I know all your tricks and your
    foul play won't work on me anymore
    fire away, what more can I do but say
    fire away, fire away

    General CommentYeah, most of the lyrics to the verses are wrong. What was this person possibly hearing? How can you hear "gold", when there was a clear "SS" sound at the end of the word? Not to mention glass is a close rhyme with past. Jesus. Also, it's "Lit up like a beacon", not little black beacon.
