Nothing happens when you're counting the cost
You fill the basket when the bread gets tossed
Castaway upon the waterfront
Step right in and take whatever you want

It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me

Full of feelings that I couldn't afford
Till I up and threw my heart overboard
Take it all 'cause I remember when
I lost my life so you could find it again

It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
Who is gonna disagree
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me

Nothing happens when I'm counting the cost
You fill the basket when the bread gets tossed

It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me

It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
Who is gonna disagree
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me

It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
It's a written guarantee
When I give it up to you
You give it back to me
