I was crying for silence, or to be alone
So frightened and enlightened, by yourself at home
I could run into the ashes, and be reborn in them
I will lay here in the ocean, and I will never drown

I'm sorry I wasn't strong enough to let you down
I was too blinded to realise that I was watching you drown
While I was safe in a life boat
So many miles away from here

So cry yourself to sleep now, my darling girl
It's over but it doesn't have to hurt like this
I'd forgotten how to hold you, and keep you safe here
I can no longer hold it...
