I can just see you, whilst you sail across the waters
And the winds will knock your heart free
You'll take the pictures of life as a sailor
And you'll send them to me
You'll write me a story about waves that came crashing
And how they helped you find peace
I'll write you a story about my garden of daisies
And tell ya it's where I'm meant to be

Cause you've found your quiet now
And I've found my quiet
By landeth and by sea
But one can't exist without the other to feed it
What's that say about you and me
I've been meaning to ask
About you and me

No one ever really knows the reasons for breaking
Or the reasons to set a heart free
But I know I'll miss you when I'm working 'neath the willows
And my hands are blistered and bleeding
And I know you'll miss me when you cast out the long lines
And catch fish to fill bellies of the weak
I'm feeling full now and you're feeling full now
By landeth and by sea
I've been meaning to ask
About you and me

If you should decide to come back from the water
We'll rest neath that ol' willow tree
Cause I'm willing to take it and I'm willing to lose it
Guess that's the way
Love's supposed to be
I've been meaning to ask
What loves supposed to be

You've found your quiet now
And I've found my quiet
By landeth and by sea
One can't exist without the other to feed it
What's that say about you and me
I've been meaning to ask
About you and me
