She asked for my love again today
and I refused because I didn't want to fail.
One of these days I'll not only turn away,
I'll walk all the way to the dock and set sail.

I'm going to embrace the sky
whether I drown or part the waves.
I'm going to leave it all behind
and let the sea bury my mistakes.

Those eyes looked at me again today,
a little too hoping and oh so brown.
Some say she's perfect in every way
but I'm not one to ever be bound.

I'm going to pledge only to the skies,
even if my allegiance doesn't last long.
I've never been one for heaven and honest angel eyes;
never could recognise when I'm in the wrong.

I'm going to leave with the tide;
I can't learn to love for just your sake.
I'm going to leave it all behind
and let the sea bury my mistakes.
