I had a lot to say before they sewed my mouth shut
Out on a rosy field between a cross and crescent
I had a love so pure I had to leave her behind
I never told her why, did I ever tell myself why?
I kept a steady hand as we untied the bowline
Off of a ragged pier during a grey-haired sunset

Past the old tree and the coal mine
We deserted all the burdens of the land
Traded all that aging clay
For the urgency and anger of the sea

A hundred fading prayers sewn into woolen blankets
And my father's rosary
Twisted around my frail uncertain wrist
I'd heard a soul could float, but could it swim to safety?
Well I'm scared that when this ends
I may not even have one at all

And you said:

I do believe that hope is just a grand distraction
From the walls you will have to climb
So pick up your weeping feet and just start moving forward
And don't look back to see if she's there

'cause she'll never see your face
