Mayday

You'd woken up my heart

Brought it in from the cold

You promised me your life

Past growing old


But staring in your eyes

I could only see so far

There was something way down deep

Some long lost scar


That wouldn't let you say

Your ship was slowly sinking

and you couldn't scream


MAYDAY MAYDAY

You left me to drown alone

MAYDAY MAYDAY

With a lifesaver made of stone


And the water felt too cold

And the sea was too deep

To let me walk away

or to let me get some sleep


I held onto those hands

that wouldn't let me go

My friends pulled me ashore

and kept my head afloat

I didn't have to say


My ship was slowly sinking

and I couldn't scream


MAYDAY MAYDAY

You left me to drown alone

MAYDAY MAYDAY

With a lifesaver made of stone
