lyrics

When I saw you at the ocean and you said you were through
All I heard was breaking waves on the stones
My life was gonna change, so I said "let's go"
You know that water never really was blue

I might never find the truth in what you believe
For we never went out to sea too far
That smirk you give and your sapphire heart
No, you won't let me take them from here

If I ever get back home
If I ever get back home

Will your eyes meet mine like in summertime
Will you hold me close with winter in your bones
Will the season smile on me like you would
When you loved me the same way I loved you

The trouble with you is just the trouble with me
We're the same riptide we come back, we come back
I wonder if the sand will cut us some slack
Or if we're lost to drown forever in the sea

Naturally, your man is the captain on board
Though I've never been a lone mutineer
If it's you and it's me the way the navigator steers
When the ship sinks down they'll find us on the shore

If I ever get back home
If I ever get back home

Will your eyes meet mine like in summertime
Will you hold me close with winter in your bones
Will the season smile on me like you would
When you loved me the same way I loved you

I loved you

Won't you come find me on the mainland
All I want to do is hold your hand
No, you're never on dry land when it rains
Just maybe I'll forget I felt the pain

Looking back
All these years
I can still
Taste my tears
Feel the wind
See sunrise
Still you stay
In my mind

Well here I am
Left with the rain
But you know that it can't
Wash away the pain

Well here I am
Left with the pain
There's a bruise on my soul
And I've never been the same

The road is long
And I know in my soul
Every path I tread
Will lead me home

But don't find me now, no more
But don't find me now, no more
