All hands on deck don't abandon the ship
You'll never know what it could have been
All hands on deck my ship is sinking
Don't let me go, Don't let me drown

A step to the right to your own rhythm
Because what comes next is up to you
I need a miracle to save me from this
I need the angels to all pray for me
I can't believe you

Another day another worry
Breaks right through
And indecision bleeds me dry
She's turning pages I'm not making for her
She's painting pictures without me in mind
I can't believe you

The long walks on Moon Light beach
The promises you could not keep
Your so contagious, Your so contagious
For all the world we did not see
For all the smiles you gave to me
They're so contagious, So contagious
So very fake

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to you

    General Commentthis is by far my favorite Waking Ashland song. It seems to me that it's all about a girl that left him, and he's pretty much singing about their relationship "the ship". Starts off the song singing about how she shouldn't leave him cause she won't know what she could end up missing... and from there he pretty much gives up and realizes that she's just a fake.

    General CommentOh. Ouch. Tthere goes my heart.

    It's cruel to make a song so amazing and so relatable.

    Only I love it.

    General Commentsomeone is letting the other go. the ship is sinking... its slowly ending. he'd do anything for her and its up to her to make it work. shes going to miss out on what could of been because shes not sticking around. everything is left so up in the air, he doesnt know what to do. then "goodbye to you"... its just over. something relatable... eek. other than... i havent let go. im just worried he will....
