and sally by the sea, sally by the sea
dipped her toes in salty water, dug her hands into the sand
and asked austin if he believed "forever"
as she shut her eyes and tilted her face up to the stars.

and austin, austin, austin ran away
for fear of growing old
before he got to taste the sky.

so i guess they just weren't quite the same,
they must have wanted different things,
and it broke my heart to watch, to see

oh, sally by the sea, sally by the sea
