lyrics

You walked out to The Apostles
All the way across the water
And you came back burning ember
At least that’s how I remember

And you raised your hand so all could see
Dropped it hard when we were all leaving
That’s when the willow started to buckle
But we both know it’s not that easy

And you called me out
Yeah you called me out
You curse the mountain
And you curse the sea
When you reflected you reflected back on me

In cars and motels and bars and pews
Where typewriters burned and papers flew
I won’t laugh unless you’re laughing, too
I swear I won’t ever laugh at you

Lamplight burst and fever broke
You lost your nerve and you missed the joke
I won’t laugh unless you’re laughing, too
I swear I won’t ever laugh at you

And you called me out
Yeah you called me out
You curse the mountain
And you curse the sea
When you reflected you reflected back on me

Inside before the skies opened up
You went down before you felt the cut
I held out my hand to help you up
I didn’t mean to let you down so easy

And I’ve read and reread the words you wrote
“This is doomed, this is sinking boat”
I didn’t mean to let you down so easy
Don’t worry darling, I’m just leaving
