my heart is failing
daughter, won't you take me
one last time to the harbor
i used to be younger
i used to be a drunkard
but liquor doesn't love me anymore

can't you see all i ever wanted
was to build an ark for my family
from my flood i tried to lift your bodies
what the hell did i expect
from a young fisherman

i was a good girl
until i met your father
until i fell enamored, living on the edge
now his days are numbered
they always were
i tried to kill him once in self defense

can't you see all i ever wanted
was to get back out to the ocean
from his flood i tried to spare our daughter
what the hell did i expect from a young fisherman

here with my father
drive you to the water
take you to the harbor
one last time
and i will leave you there pining
the almighty pastime
dying in the arms of the ocean

can't you see all i ever wanted
was someone to stay with me
but i loved a no good man like you
what the hell did i expect
from a young fisherman
