lyrics

I don't know if I can see distant streetlights in the trees
And don't know if I can think of my future without a drink
And I could cast away my fears to the islands and the years
If you tie a knot in me we could fade out in midstream

And follow down to where the sea calls
Giving me an answer
Even as the rain falls on me
And this time I thought it was over
But the dream can crumble
And once more I feel my life go numb

There's so much to keep me here: distant friendship, hollow cheer
(And I can hear)
Once or twice the times I've had when the drugs weren't all that bad
(And I know)
That I can listen to this sound, dripping plastic on damp ground
(Just for once)
I would like the rain to stop where it suits me to leave off

And follow down to where the sea calls
Giving me an answer
Even as the rain falls on me
And this time I thought it was over
But the dream can crumble
And once more I feel my life go numb

I drove the car onto the sand
I watched fireworks leaving land
Didn't know the reason why they were planting those flowers in the sky
But in a moment they were gone
Nothing left of them
Nothing right or wrong

And follow down to where the sea calls
Giving me an answer
Even as the rain falls on me
And this time I thought it was over
But the dream can crumble
And once more I fear my life goes on
And follow down to where the sea calls
Giving me an answer
Even as the rain falls on me
And this time I thought it was over
But the dream can crumble
And once more I feel my life go numb
