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, ‘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
