"The Deepest Ocean" as written by Richard Colburn, Gary Lightbody, Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Garrett Lee, Iain Archer and T. Stewart....
I've been terrified since you walked out the door
And these were not the lies I told you once before
This is not the end it's still an outside bet
I'm not taking off my wedding ring just yet

And it's years since I took stock of it
Seems that it's not come to much
This is everything I ever wrote
Collapsed into the core

I've been terrified for far to fucking long
What is that thing I lack that makes you so damn strong
Your letter in my hands is rolled into a ball
With drunken comedy it's thrown hard at the wall

And it's years since I took stock of it
Seems it's not come too much
This is everything I ever wrote
Collapsed into the core

And the stitches are unraveling
And the seams have all but burst
Maybe all my years of traveling
Have quenched what I've thirst

These years have flown by
These hands have shaken
I have no notion
Of what happens next

There's a kind of freedom
And I think of it
Then the panic quickens
There is no sorrow
