lyrics

Again
we saw the same signs
we said the same lines
we have the same fights
the world keeps turning, turning
the sun, it will rise
you wake by my side
the same great divide
but are we learning, learning
 
and you
call me backslider
no great decider
why are we back here again and again
Your ocean eyes
my life capsized
the waste and weight and words will only pull us under
 
(and) This
is an apology
for all you've given me
for all the times I take and take and take for granted
Again
we're on the cresting wave
what is there left to save
I left you drifting, sinking, on an ice sheet stranded
 
and you
call me backslider
no great decider
why are we back here again and again
Your ocean eyes
my life capsized
the waste and weight and words will only pull us under
 
time through time
river through stone
carving our names
etched on our bones
time through time
river will rise
how many mistakes before
the river runs dry
 
(and) I
knew only discontent
I spoke not what I meant
I lived a life of rashness, reason, taking, taking
I watched you growing dark
the seasons of the heart
my darling, tell me, can we stop this breaking, breaking
 
and you
call me backslider
no great decider
why are we back here again and again
Your ocean eyes
my life capsized
the waste and weight and words will only pull us under
 
time through time
river through stone
carving our names
etched on our bones
time through time
river will rise
how many mistakes before
the river runs dry
 
You were always on my mind
two steps back, two steps back, falling over
You were always on my mind
two steps back, two steps back, diving under
