Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Before I jump ship, for cooler shores, may I gently close this account of ours?
Through all that I know and have loved is inside, I'm just losing faith in these costly times.
And I pray for your health and your peace of mind but God must now I just want you by my side.
And the mornings I've woken and sought your warmth
If only I'd held you and told you before
Verse 2
But I'm no fool, my heart is just exposed, I'm just weathering the flows
And I'm not the man you thought, I suppose, you leave me tender to the blues
Verse 3
And you phone me to tell me, of these regrets of yours
But I've been lying awake until the small small hours
And the wise men say I should fight for my cause
But I'm all punched out and just so so tired.
Verse 4
But I'm no fool, my heart is just exposed, I'm just weathering the flows
And you're not the girl I thought, I suppose. you leave me tender to the blues.
