lyrics

When I first saw it there, amongst the wreckage
A membento to a former life, I nearly lost it
All those memories were burned away and I felt nothing after that
Everywhere, lives were scattered on the street
And I was terrified of where I was gonna find mine
The ocean came, and swept away our pride
Everything I ever loved was lost in the tide
Where were you when the waters overthrew
All sense of normalcy, and when they did recede
They left behind a trail of things that I had failed
To defend from the storm or myself
Save what you can grab, there's not a lot of time
Leave me here with all the things you'd rather leave behind
I'll watch the ark depart as the waves carry me home
I'd say that I was sorry, but I'm sure you already know
The fires glowed, deep into the night
But I've seen all I need to see, the last thing I need is light
To show me all the things I could've saved but didn't
If I die tonight please know that till the end my heart was in it
Miles away, let the wind carry me home
Back to where I should've been, a long long time ago
I hope that you can hear me, I hope that you can see
I hope that when it's over, there'll be something left of me
Save what you can grab, there's not a lot of time
Leave me here with all the things you'd rather leave behind
I'll watch the ark depart as the waves carry me home
I'd say that I was sorry, but I'm sure you already know
All I want is there to be some semblance of you left for me
To hold onto before I drown
Your voice is all I'll hear as I begin to go down
Save what you can grab, there's not a lot of time
Leave me here with all the things you'd rather leave behind
I'll watch the ark depart as the waves carry me home
I'd say that I was sorry, but I'm sure you already know
