there's a tree out in the yard
and our names, they are carved
in the branches, and forever they'll remain
at least that's what we thought
when we were young and we would dream
though it seems that some things must meet an end
and I feel lost, I feel old, today
this ball and chain drags me down
to the bottom of the sea
but I won't let time catch up with me.
when lightning strikes the ground
and that tree comes crashing down
will the sound erase "you + me?"
so at the slightest chance of rain
they might be circling the drain
but forget that ball and chain, I'll be the sea.
I'll be the ocean, and the storm, for you.
you are the captain, and the crew
and I will get you home.
and we'll know we don't have to be alone.
we'll know we don't have to be alone.
