Everybody fights for something
With no exception here, the tides turn fast
We wear the crowns and talk them back

Go and sail on, guilty until gone
Don't go down with any ships tonight
Your lifeboat heart's long out of sight

Turn to war when pride could be saved then
You felt a fool in how you looked
(Not every sorrow owes a crook

Someday I'll learn you like I'm supposed to
Your lips don't match the words your eyes say
Your hands are cold and we stand too straight

Come back and change my mind
The fallen hard are hard to find
We're always running out of line
Bring back those brighter days(
The wind drowns every word we say
And you and I drift fingertips away

Now what remains can't be changed(
Like the lens that tints and blocks your eye
Was it the log or the speck in mine?

Welcomes stay worn, flags are made torn
Who drew the line between fault and betrayal?
The wounded are first to fire away

Come back and change my mind
The fallen hard are hard to find
We're always running out of line
Bring back those brighter days(
The wind drowns every word we say
And you and I drift fingertips away

I can't hold your cold hands
(You thought you saw a ghost who had my name
I can't hold your cold hands(
But I don't sleep, all the same

Come back and change my mind
The fallen hard are hard to find
We're always running out of line
Bring back those brighter days
(The wind drowns every word we say
And you and I drift fingertips away

Bring back those brighter days(
The wind drowns every word we say
And you and I drift fingertips away
