lyrics

i found you wading knee deep in the ocean
beckoning the tide to come back in
and the glimmer in your eye screams devotion
the sand is building castles in your skin

and the captain came knocking on your door
an envelope sealed with sweat and mud
and frozen as a glacier in the mountains
a million words to speak
lost in empty pages

are you afraid of getting old
december nights are getting cold
and the angel is creeping 'round the corner
but we're still here

the captain coming home to his daughter
eighteen months of february snow
with promises delivered from his father
an orchard full of seeds he longed to sow

sleepless nights befriend the restless days
memories and dreams blur his gaze
but the letter he delivered was his fortune
a million words to speak
lost in empty pages

are you afraid of getting old
december nights are getting cold
and the angel is creeping 'round the corner
but we're still here

the fever comes and passes in the morning
i found you lying naked on the floor
and electric skies deliver you a warning
but you're running through the rain along the shore

and the captain is calling out your name
beckoning for you to come along
and weeping as the raindrops in the ocean
together laying flowers at his bedside
resting as a peaceful winter evening
a million words to speak
lost in empty pages

are you afraid of getting old
december nights are getting cold
and the angel is creeping 'round the corner
and the angel
and the angel
but we're still here
we're still here
we're still here
