Wind And The Whaler – It's Not A Lake, It's An Ocean lyrics

Seven in the morning I'm dying in my head
A sleepless night once again, so many questions never asked
The whisky makes me dazed but it helps me to escape
And my guitar shows up different ways

Still I wait for the day

Then I will hold on fast
To what's left at last
And everything will be as it should
Then I will hold on fast
To what's left at last
I did what I could

And this constant fear I just can't see clear
It's like an anchor to my feet
You say you understand
But I know you can't and you never will

I'm drawing pictures with words
But they don't seem to work
What I see scares me and it don't make sense to me
Somehow I keep falling
In uncertain depths
The future shines behind me
Throws my shadow on distress

The sea is deep when we are sleeping
But only a puddle if we are awake
Sometimes an unsolved question
Is better than an answer you can't take
