Oh I, Oh I
I'll sing to you, I'll sing to you
What will age you young doe?
Oh I, Oh I
I'll sing to you, I'll sing you home
What will wise us?

I'll go through this after you wake,
Then begin again when you fall asleep
There's still light where you are
And you, my dear, were not made to waste away
I saw the storm reach from the sky to the ground as dark as the day was bright
I can't go into this alone.

My body will fall before I let you down
I know all about your weeping heart.

Oh I, Oh I,
I'll sing to you, I'll sing to you
What will age you young doe?
Oh I, Oh I,
I'll sing to you, I'll sing you home
What will wise us?

My body will fall before I let you down
I'll make you proud before I love again.

Oh I, Oh I,
I'll sing to you, I'll sing to you
What will age you young doe?
Oh I, Oh I,
I'll sing to you, I'll sing you home
What will wise us?

How shameful we've become,
We left a child to untie sailor knots and eye the cresting rocks.
Am I the one to choose?
How shameful we've become,
If we overlook the captain's cries, we'll never kiss the shore.
This isn't what I choose.

My body will fall before I let you down,
I know all about your weeping heart.
My body will fall before I let you down,
I'll make you proud before I love again
And how shameful we've become.

    General CommentAmazing music and the lyrics are really vague and you have to think about it for a minute before you start to see what they're talking about. I think this song is talking about a guy and girl who are getting really tempted and the guy is saying he will fail in that and won't make her proud (my body will fall before I let you down,I'll make you proud before I love again.) Then he's regretting it by saying "how shameful we've become". Then he shows how little of a chance he feels like he has in keeping a shameless relationship by saying "we left a child to untie sailor knots and eye the cresting rocks". Then it's possible he's referring to God when he says "If we overlook the captain's cries, we'll never kiss the shore." He's pretty much saying if we don't pay attention to what "the captain" (can't be sure who that is) is saying, then we won't make it and we'll fail. I have no clue what he's talking about when he says "what will age you young doe". I know he's probably talking about the girl when he says doe but I don't really get what he's talking about there.
