Rowing Back

Like the waves come so far, just to rest on the shore,

Or the sunsilver rays would lose everything to warm your face

Why'm I always rowing back to you?

 

 

Like an old dog, left behind,

Will learn to cross state lines

Just to sit with his best friend again

You know that I'd risk everything

 

Salt in my beard, blood in my eyes

And a face I know I’ve earned

I've heard sirens cry

Do not ask me why

 

I'm always rowing back to you

It's the only thing I know how to do

 

Have a little faith, my dear,

This storm won't last, and I'm praying fast

Don't take your light down from the windowpane

 

Have a little my faith, my dear,

'Cuz I'm bailing hard, then I'll square the yards

And come home

 

Like the waves come so far, just to rest on the shore

Or the sunsilver rays

I'd lose everything
