LOST AT SEA LYRICS

Summer Black 

I wish I could stop his drunken words still swimming in your head / You’re in his coat, fragments in the pockets / From a time you tried to fix him, but you bled / The train is here / The seasons crack as you lay him on the track / You picture him in his summer black / Makes you want your summer back / And I see this is all that you can take / Let it break / You are not to blame / We all jump the waves before we learn to swim / But his hands on the clock move you in slow motion / Makes you feel that you’re still holding on to him / The train is here / The seasons crack as you lay him on the track / You picture him in his summer black / Makes you want your summer back / And I see this is all that you can take / Let it break / On this winter’s day / Man, you’re so afraid / You dressed him up in his autumn grey / Made you think that he could change / Then it all just feels like some sad mistake / Let it break / Even though you feel you’re falling / Let it break / Even when his voice is torn with tears / Let it break / Even when it feels like you have wasted all your years / Let it break / Even though you’re scared to let it / Let it break / Even when he’s sober with regret / Let it break / Even when the memory of that spring tells you “not yet”

Everything

Just a little longer and you’ll get it right / Just a little longer / Just one more night / Until you wake to find that everything you wanted and everything you got look the same inside / And you’re everything you would believe / Just a little longer / You watch, you wait / Just a little longer ‘til Judgment Day / And you wake to find that everything you wanted and everything you got look the same inside / And you’re everything you would believe / Say it’s done / C’mon and say you’ve won / Say you’ve gone and walked right up that hill / You’ll be fine when I’m not by your side / Look behind and I’ll be right there still / You know I will / You’ll wake to find that everything you wanted and everything you got look the same inside / And you’re everything

Never

Hey boy, you got me grinnin’ all the time / Got me soarin’ over treetops / Nailin’ all my lines / Hey boy, yeah this is all I ever want / And you’re all I ever hoped for / And all I never got / And I’ll never, never, never, never go back / No one should live like that / After all I’ve been through / Thought I’d never write of lovers’ ends / Thought I’d never die then get to try again / Hey boy, what were you about to say? / 'Cause there’s nothin’ I won’t give you when you throw that look my way / Hey boy, will you be here ‘til I go? / ‘Til my heart stops its strummin’ / And all that’s left is radio / And I’ll never, never, never, never go back / No one should live like that / After all I’ve been through / Thought I’d never write of lovers’ ends / Thought I’d never die then get to try... / Days, they passed / I kept waiting / Waiting for the next one / Shadows fell, shadows fading / Fading into time, into rage / Into life on some new page / No I’ll never go back / No one should live like that / After all I’ve been through / Thought I’d never have a love like yours / Thought I’d always sing in minor chords / Thought I’d never write of lovers’ ends / Thought I’d never die then get to try again

Leaving London 

You’re leaving London but the city won’t watch you / Won’t know you’re no longer there (Every twisting road) / Euston Station already forgot you (Every autumn coat) / Covent Garden doesn’t care (Every cobbled street) / You’re leaving London but when you’re moving on (Every barren tree) / Your baggage stays the same (Every face unknown) / You’re leaving London but you’re not moving on (Every last train home) / You’re just running away / Leaving London now / There’s no turning ‘round / Everyone you’ve saved simply turns away / You’re leaving London and maybe that’s good for you / We all wanna see what we can see (Every fake hello) / You’re leaving London / Leaving memories, too (Every stained window) / Dreamers are the most they’ll ever be (Every city sign) / Do you have a reason for leaving other than “finding yourself”? (Every railway line) / Though, if it’s not that, what then? (Every alleyway) / So farewell, London / Farewell, Trafalgar Square (Every drop of rain) / Turn away, turn away from them / Leaving London now / There’s no turning ‘round / Everyone you’ve saved simply turns away / What are you frightened of? / Everyone you’ve loved? / You’re leaving London town / Nothing for you now / Nothing for you now

War 

You see, we all want the same / But when things don’t add up that way, you know / And, please, you’ve seen enough of my face / Just say what you want to say, then go / ‘Cause I’ve got fire living in my veins / And I think this time that I...I’m gonna blow this place / No one wins but no one’s keeping score / And one plus one is war / I try to believe that everything works out fine / Because it happens all the time in TV shows / You and I, we followed a different line / We’d paint the sky so the sun would shine / Then it snowed / Now I’ve got fire living in my veins / And I think this time that I...I’m gonna blow this place / No one wins but no one’s keeping score / And one plus one is war / You told me I would falter / Drown alone in water far too wide for me to swim across / You always said, I would become nothing / I am made of nothing / But I am made of love / ‘Cause I’ve got fire living in my veins / And I think this time that I...I’m gonna blow this place / No one wins but no one’s keeping score / And one plus one is war / Now all the world is broken on the floor / And one plus one is war / I loved you once, don’t love you anymore / One plus one is war

If the World Were Mine 

All this doubt / All this fear / Turn your eyes, I’m right here / Now watch the day disappear / I don’t know how it starts or how two loves drift apart / Listen now for true love’s art / Will we run or fight on this darkest night? / Will our lives become our fears? / Can you hear the song, the song of Oberon? / It’s calling / Look into my eyes and find you would love me if the world were mine / Some have lost on love’s stage / Hearts go missing / Wars get waged / What was bright was meant to fade / But I see you, you see me / Close your eyes / Count to three / Now, stay right there, it’s heavenly / Will we run or fight on this darkest night? / Will our lives become our fears? / Can you hear the song, the song of Oberon? / It’s calling / Look into my eyes and find you would love me if the world were mine / It’s one part reason, two parts rain / One part longing, two parts shame / One part heaven, one part hell / Mix together, stir it well / Will we run or fight on this darkest night? / Will our lives become our fears? / Can you hear the song, the song of Oberon? / It’s calling / Look into my eyes and find you would love me if the world were mine

Dungeons & Dragons 

We were searching ‘til you gave us a place to rest / You were on fire to head out west / We were broken ‘til you showed us where to stand / Just a band of misfits in some made-up land / We just want to see you fly / All those monsters passing by / It was on the day that you died / That we would finally feel magic is real / Keep the secrets and promise that you’ll write / If ever you need us, we’re good for the fight / We just want to see you fly / All those monsters passing by / It was on the day that you died / That we would finally feel magic is real / You showed us how to give life one more shot / Like Dungeons & Dragons / We never forgot

    

Frozen River

She said you were her star, and then / She left you with some scars again / And she asked you to be strong / Then she told you you were wrong / And you tear your world apart and hope one day that you’ll forgive her / Life just gets too hard / Now you’re floating like a frozen river / He offered you some comfort, then / You’re back to where you’d always been / Sinking like a stone / It was something you called home / And you tear your world apart and pray one day that you’ll forgive her / Life just gets too hard / Now you’re floating like a frozen river / You call it love, she called it sin / You crawled out the window, climbed back in / All those pretty boys and those perfect girls / They all keep quiet in their perfect world / But you have a song / And it goes on and on and on / You have a song / And it tears her world apart / You gave her all that you could give her / Life just gets so hard / You fight and swim and shake and shiver / Again, again you start / Until the frozen river turns to water 

Who's With Him? 

Hurry up, my childhood friend / I’ve got reason to believe you’ll love again / And don’t be late, time’s wearing thin / And I’m shattered and fraying / Thinning and graying / Your life falls down like rain / I know I should, but cannot look away / Your life falls into place / You say, it’s not far to drop / I won’t stay / You won’t stop / And this is not a game you’re going to win / When all that you keep asking, who’s with him? / I hope there’s time for both of us / ‘Cause this life gets kind of long and dangerous / Now I’m not one to make a fuss / But fast loves they leave you cold and flammable / Your life falls down like rain / I know I should, but cannot look away / Your life falls into place / You say, it’s not far to drop / I won’t stay / You won’t stop / And this is not a game I’m going to win / When all that I keep asking, who’s with him? / So, who’s the real thing? / Who’s your favorite? / Who’s your fan? / Who’s your savior? / Who’s your angel? / Who’s your man?

Lost At Sea 

Careful what you believe / Careful the words you say / He sailed across the deep / I stayed / He was always a little late / Now I’m late to understand / He was the rocking waves / I was the sand / But he sang / Keep it together / Oceans forever / He promised me / Never return / All bridges burn / Just you and me / Lost at sea / He saw me on the shore / I saw him next to me / What we were fighting for, no one could see / Lost in some secret storm / He takes the siren, I steal the crown / But if I were to drown with him, let me drown / And we sang / Keep it together / Oceans forever / He promised me / Never return / All bridges burn / Just you and me / Lost at sea
