I followed you down to the water
Kept a nightwatch from the rocks as you departed
I was watching you slip into darkness, darling

You never noticed me trail you down the pathway
Into the vast and mysterious open body
Do you think you'll end up like where you started, darling

500 steps to the lookout on the lighthouse
11 seconds between lightning and the thunder
You're 20 miles away now from me on the water

I believe in you
I believe in infinity

Cause I was watching you join the horizon
I was watching you sign the confession
I had followed you down to the water, darling

I believe in truth
I believe in infinity

I don't know if you're a lover or a friend
But I was hoping I would meet with you again
Maybe in Georgia or the California town
Where we went running kicking stones up off the ground

So there you go
So there you go
So there you go
So there you go
