I lied to you I've cheated too

So what friend can I be

But still you stick through thick & thin

Hoping that you'll change me.



I towed the line then fell behind

The pressure grew & then I knew

You threw a rope attached with hope

Way down into the sea

Where Lovers swim so deeply in

The tides of mystery



For what it's worth I don't deserve

A girl as strong as you

You're worth much more than me I'm sure
