I could deliver a billion pillows
wrap you up in gauze
I could summon every doctor
to pinpoint the very cause
of your unrest
but you won't say “yes”

It hurts to lose someone when they choose
they'd rather break away
but surely you know that everything goes
no matter what I say

Does that mean it's wasted
and shouldn't have happened?
Would you erase it?
cause he's not your husband?

I can't save you, you're going to have to save yourself
But i can't blame you, i've been in your shoes sometimes myself
Don't throw yourself away

Forgot how to swim and out on a limb
you've carved into a plank
“Only the sea will understand me"
and offer an escape
It's a leap of faith

Does that mean it's wasted
and shouldn't have happened?
Would you erase it ?
since he's not your husband?

You speak of fallen saints
I can't deny the dark
but I despise a god
who'd extinguish your spark
