this time i mean it

i thought i was tall
but seeing you there
sitting so sure
I feel so small

i said before i’d go down with the ship
but this time i mean it
i’m learning to walk on listing planks
but now i’m sure-footed

she made your body
but i lent a hand
gave of myself
i’ll give on forever

i said before i’d go down with the ship
but this time i mean it
i’m learning to walk on listing planks
but now i’m sure-footed

there’s a story here
what part am i
protagonist
or simply a foil
i’ll play the bit part
if it means
i get to see you
steal the show

i said before i’d go down with the ship
but this time i mean it
i’m learning to walk on listing planks
but now i’m sure-footed
