lyrics

i let go of your hand
when the nails filled the air.
the sky splintered apart
and the pieces pierced our hearts.
it would've been better to end there
'cause at least i could say
that i died loving you
doing nothing wrong
no one yet betrayed.

and dear god, i am small here on the edge.
please pick me up and float me across the sea.
put me in a little boat and i swear i'll try to row.

and i swear, i won't give up this time.
and i swear, i won't give up this time.

there are a million little rocks to throw
or place inside my pockets.
i could start another war,
or sink down under without a second thought.
lift my skirt above my ankles,
and just start to wade on in,
but as the water rises your face
it floats up again.

and dear god, i am small here on the road.
it bends and it folds, and finishes at the sea,
so put me in a little boat and i swear i'll try to row.

and i swear, i won't give up this time.
and i swear, i won't give up this time.
