I fought my way back from the Georgia Strait
Cause I've been where horizon meets the day
I found this place where the Devil has a face
And no whiskey's gonna wipe away my dreams

So come on and lay with me
While I'm here in the empty
And I sing "Come on and save me from this song with no ending"
Out of fire and into water
Don't you cry o'er my hunger
Cause you know I'll lie with you one more day

For half my life and most of yours too
I've been sailing this broke down ship
From here to where I can't have you
It's not killing me, only me of a lesser degree
Would forsake what they left back in the country

If only waves could carry thoughts and praise
They'd roll across the ocean till they splash into your lonely face
But don't stare too long at the blue so tall and strong
Just know I'll be coming before too long
