I watched the shore wash you away
Can you believe in this tide?
Did you see this coming?
Such a violent blue
Your father spoke many words
Tore me open inside
Scream to the skies
It won't change a thing

I fear the coming coast
With lonesome heads, alone
I can't come back
I can't come back

I used to hold such gold
I used to hold such pride
Gave it to the gods
In hopes they would save me
A shipless sailor is silent
In hopes of finding home
Cause nothing's worse than leaving
Then never leaving at all

I fear the coming coast
With lonesome heads, alone
I can't come back
I can't come back

I stay close,
This ghost, my haunting
It's so hard to keep you
My heart, how it's fading

The sea calls me home

Oh what a leader to take my life from me
Everything you love will someday fade
I will curse this ocean on your family name
I won't forget you, I won't forget a thing
