Somewhere, baby, it started to cede
Growing on that folly morass
Would you believe?

Had our backs turned to our love
That was left sleep talking
Sprawled out on the middle
Of that lukewarm bed
Oh, can’t take that silent shivering
So, tell me, where’s the reefing that we kept?

Said, β€˜We'll be best friends forever.’
So why are we not together?
It's a voyage from the doldrums, I guess

You're gonna call it now, baby
Christ, I've seen it
In those gauzy eyes
I've got his phone safe in my palm
With shared memories
I could never understand

I can't furl it no more, oh no
When it's brought me to my knees
For it's 26 knots of gusto
And that vessel's heeling at the seams

Our love's flanked on that deck
Of missed aces
But I'll not fold it, oh no
'Cause it's still hocked inside of me
Of all the things we decreed
And, I swear, it won't go undealt
'Cause there's bound to be another pair
Of hands at our helm
