Well I walked down to the shore
And watched the water tear you away from me.
So I cried out loud, I cried out to you but I was too late.
I was too late.
So I went inside and felt a strange feeling come over me.
If I had reached out to you I could have kept you safe.
I could have kept you safe.
But now you're out there in the currents.
[It carries you away]
Buried underneath the waves.
And our past flashed right before my eyes.
[Our past flashed right before my eyes]
And I stood there motionless trapped in disbelief
So many times and so many moments we should have shared
Now buried underneath the waves.
I just wish I could tell you.
That I don't expect for you to forgive me or to forget
I'll just walk around this lifeless house
[I can't forget that you see right through me
I can't forgive if I never knew it.]
Singing songs I hope they catch your ear.
You see right through me.
[You see right through me.]
I'll look up and down the coast.
