lyrics

close your eyes and count to ten
then back down to one again
wipe the salt from your skin
and the blood from your chin

this is how the story goes
an author no one knows
so take off all your clothes
and let your bruises show

tonight i’ll stay by your side
darlin’, rest your weary mind

our love will
our love will
lift us to a higher ground
where no high or
lonesome sound will follow

the devil’s nipping at your tail
but there’s a wind in your sail
this old boat will never fail
when the storms whip and wail
get on your feet again
every broken heart will mend
no matter how broke or bent
this love will never end

tonight i’ll stay by your side
darlin’, rest your weary mind

our love will
our love will
lift us to a higher ground
where no high or
lonesome sound will follow
