lyrics

Lover your head is down your eyes are on the floor
No matter what we give it leaves us wanting more
But you, you know which way to go
For all the restless hours and empty afternoons
For all the faded flowers of dreams we spoke too soon
Well you, you know which way to go

But there's no harbor here
There's only danger near
Cliffs above and rocks below
And though I want you close
This light can only glow
To warn you far away from shore
Saying “I love you, now go”

I’m sounding the foghorn, lowly echoes ‘cross the bay
And the beacon of the tower lights the way
So you, you know which way to go
Well I won't have another wreck upon my watch
But I can’t tell you what to do, I know this much
And you, you know which way to go

But there's no harbor here
There's only danger near
Cliffs above and rocks below
I don’t want to waste your time
But this light can only shine
To warn you far away from shore
Saying “I love you, now go”
I love you, now go
Go

I’m still dreaming of your eyes, your mouth, your touch
But I won't have another wreck upon my watch
And you, you know which way to go
