Someone Like You – Anchoring Me Down lyrics

Do you walk the plank with a prayer on your lips
Or the memory of our first kiss
And as you pray to God to save you
Tell me can he teach you how to swim?

Calling all hands on deck, the water's rough for as far as I can tell
Well I never thought I'd see myself with anybody else
You went overboard with your treachery, in a classic sense you lead this mutiny
You had wandering lips so I jumped ship, but I sure as hell can't drown without you anchoring me down anymore

Now I sail alone, throwing overboard everything that I've ever known
Words won't break bones, but I'll cast the first stone
I hope it hits home, but I don't think that you'll ever know
Mayday, mayday, until you're on your own
Mayday, mayday, you're on your own...

Calling all hands on deck, the water's rough for as far as I can tell
Well I never thought I'd see myself with anybody else
You went overboard with your treachery, in a classic sense you lead this mutiny
You had wandering lips so I jumped ship, but I sure as hell can't drown without you anchoring me down anymore

You're not anchoring me down!

Calling all hands on deck, the water's rough for as far as I can tell
Well I never thought I'd see myself with anybody else
You went overboard with your treachery, in a classic sense you lead this mutiny
You had wandering lips so I jumped ship, but I sure as hell can't drown without you anchoring me down anymore

You're not anchoring me down!

All hands on deck, said I knew it
I held steadfast while you sold me out
You went overboard with your treachery
Loose lips sink ships

You're not anchoring me down!
