Yellowcard – Lift A Sail lyrics

If a cold wind starts to rise
I am ready now, I am ready now
With the last sail lifted high
I am ready now, I am ready now

All the wreckage I left behind
I've burned the earth beneath
My weary, weakened feet
Feel my heart stop and lift my eyes
I can't choose when to love
Or who I am part of

If a cold wind starts to rise
I am ready now, I am ready now
With the last sail lifted high
I am ready now, I am ready now

I was so wrong and unaware
I locked myself away, I thought that I'd be safe
Then I realized I've gone nowhere
Life is just too sweet to lay in this defeat

If a cold wind starts to rise
I am ready now, I am ready now
With the last sail lifted high
I am ready now, I am ready now
If a storm blows in our way
I am ready now, I am ready now
When the rains come from underneath
I am ready now, I am ready

    It's about how life's full of tough times and he's ready for them but before he wasn't. This song was written whilst the Yellowcard song writer's wife was in hospital due to a spinal injury, it was likely inspired by his experience in adversity. It has a very deep meaning to many and it's a great song. Deal with it.
