LYRICS:

We sent out the S.O.S. call.
It was a quarter past four, in the morning
When the storm broke our second anchor line.
Four months at sea. Four months of calm seas {only}
To be pounded in the shallows off the tip of Montauk Point.

They call 'em rogues. They travel fast and alone.
One hundred foot faces of God's good ocean gone wrong.
What they call love is a risk,
'Cause you will always get hit
Out of nowhere by some wave
And end up on your own.

The hole in the hull defied the crew’s attempts,
To bail us out.
And flooded the engines and radio,
And half buried bow.

Your tongue is a rudder.
It steers the whole ship.
Sends your words past your lips
Or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
But the wrong words will strand you.
Come off course while you sleep.
Sweep your boat out to sea
Or dashed to bits on the reef.

The vessel groans
The ocean pressures its frame.
To the port I see the lighthouse
Through the sleet and the rain.
And I wish for one more day to give my
Love and repay debts.
But the morning finds our bodies washed up thirty miles west.

They say that the captain stays fast with the ship,
Through still and storm,
But this ain't the Dakota,
And the water's so cold,
{We} won't have to fight for long.

(This is the end.)
This story's old but it goes on and on until we disappear,
(This is the calm.)
Calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed while you were underneath,
(We are the risen.)
I am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains sunk below the sea,
(After the storm.)
I spoke the words but never gave a thought to what they all could mean,
(Rest in the deep.)
I know that this is what you want, a funeral keeps both of us apart.
(Washed up on the beach.)
You know that you are not alone, I need you like water in my lungs.
[x2]

This is the end.


...You never do see any other way...

Vieem - If Only You'd Know

Thanks to Kaee for submitting :-) Please leave some comments if you like it.



LYRICS:

Talk of the jester I have been
Talk of the fool given damn about
Talk of attention I did seek
Talk of the lack you shown no regard
To chance that I took
Stakes that I staked
Thoughts in my head
That someway there's maybe
Mask that I wore
Masking what I feel
But truth that I face
Revealing thing is

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You smear side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd know

Think how embivalent must feel
To not exist seem invisible
Talk of the hurt weight it placed on me
Talk of your careless while I lay marred

Truth it be told
That can hide the thing is

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You smear side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd Know

The question could I cause
The question could I pause
To stare the grid straight
Peering through your own eyes
And the moment when I coped
Is is the moment when I stopped
And dealt with this plan mishap of mine

You don't know me
You don't want me
You don't hear me
No at all
You walk by me
Recognize me
You see side me
Than just go
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
And I don't just wanna be just a shadow
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
If only if only if only
You'd know
