Once upon a time
two ships adrift
alone on the sea
the wind has grown restless
the water is deep
a man overboard
they’ll be no search party

the sky grows an angry face
trying to hold her on course
she drifted off into space
the waves rising up around me
have I fallen victim
to being in a hurry

I’m sorry
I hurt you
why must love be, so cut and dry
I’m sorry I’ll listen more than I speak
if you’ll explain why

& these tears they fill the boat
sink to the bottom
or stay afloat
you’re such a fragile thing
stand in the spot light
while I watch in the wing

I’m sorry
I hurt you
why love must be suddenly
so cut and dry
I don’t know why but
I’m sorry I’ll whisper more than I weep
as the storm passes by
storm pass us by
this storm will pass by

Tell me
Tell me
