lyrics

Look at you, dead on your feet
Unwilling to admit defeat could ever be a possibility
You have always been headstrong
Always met things head on
Tired and bruised it was just like you
to check in for two days, then out for round two

And it hadn’t even been a year when the south winds blew him ashore
You did yourself proud but they just kept coming back for more

And when she said goodbye,
tell me did your mother hold you
for a moment longer than she needed to?
And as you took your leave, turned away and took no heed,
tell me did she know, as she watched you go?
Did she pray you’d stay?

Trouble in the north
And signs in the sky
Your time was running short
Surrounded on every side

And it hadn’t even been a year when the south winds blew him your way
That comet burned bright till its light died that day

What if it had played out a different way and you’d
chased the dragons from the bay
Stitched another scene
Seen another day

Well it hadn’t even been a year when the south winds helped him get near
And did she hold you for a moment longer?
