Music

Take me to the docks, there’s a ship without a name there

And it is sailing to the middle of the sea

The water there is deeper than anything you’ve ever seen

Jump right in and swim until you’re free

Money came like rain to your hands while you were waiting

For that cold long promise to appear

I will remember your face

‘Cause I am still in love with that place

When the stars are the only things we share

Will you be there?

I’ve got a plan, I’ve got an atlas in my hands
