Under this sun that's fit for a king
I'm up against the rock
I could have been anywhere else in the world
I'm holding down this spot
Nothing came close and nothing looked good
I'm out there on the edge
On the toe of it all a castle keeps an eye on the bay under sheets of haze
Somewhere down there with crashing waves
You kept plans for your grand escape
And I won't see you no more
You'll just hear me

Cause I will scream send it out to sea
I will live
A mile beyond, a mile beyond that heart of yours
It's broken ain't it torn?
So you will leave for the last time, the last time

She set out one night for a place she'd never been
Oh sweet my love
How does it end?
Did you find another house in the sun?
Did you fall in love?
You set sail but did not fail me
Are you coming back again?
Or have you run like I did?
It's the last time you're gonna do it again
It's in your blood just to say goodbye
This time not for a while
So find your heaven go on
You don't need me

So I will scream send it out to sea
And I will live
A mile beyond, a mile beyond that heart of yours
Broken ain't it torn
So you will leave for the last time, for the last time

Coming to you in the middle of a cold night
Can't arrest the sun but I've been trying
I hear a song floating off a tidal wave
It's alright, it's alright
Nothing gonna touch when you've said goodbye
It's alright, it's alright
A million lost souls looking just like me
Waiting on their love, but they don't believe

There's a million lost souls looking just like me
Waiting on permission but they don't believe

I will scream and send it out to sea
Somewhere between the rock face
And the place that I used to know you more
Waiting on the shore
As you leave for the last time
I will see you leave for the last time
Until I breathe for the last time
And then I will leave for the last time
