lyrics

Mary I promise to be good to you
and each day I hope it's at least half as true
I'm mining for diamonds in your basement floor
the gravel sprays in my eyes but I want more

But it's a long way home to your door
and these days I sleep on the floor
you want more for less
he's tied to your chest
but he'll slip through your fingers

and I roam the forest with the wolves and bears
and they tell me stories how they once ruled the air
and me, I'm a sailor with an ax to grind
my anchors are tethered to my windswept mind

but its a long way home to your shore
my compass is smashed on the floor
you're drowning in anguish and I know CPR
if you'll just let me near you

Inside your lighthouse you are safe and warm
Mary I promise to live through this storm

But it's a long way home to your shore
my compass is dead on the floor
we want more for less
you're tied to my chest
will you slip through my fingers yayayayaya!
