In another world...
You write my name in the sand
tide coming in on my heart.
You know my journey,
the ships that have capsized,
the planks I've been made to walk.
Stranded at sea with treasure seeking pirates
and I'm not even aware...
Figured I didn't need to signal you
that there was no one out there.
and surrounded by sharks.
and lusting after blood.
Your distant voice assures me,
that I can walk on water.
How can I believe with all the stolen treasure?
They've brought typhoons...
but somehow I could feel you in the light of the moon.
My sails, they ripped to shreds
I've lost my way
my compass is dead.
Arriving with maps to a make believe place,
the hooked handed pretender
turns my love into waste
I know you're out there
even if the horizon doesn't reveal
torn to pieces
that that a mirage
is finally real.
I know you're not perfect
You've never been one to boast
But compared to this odyssey of destruction
You're my inevitable Gold Coast.
