She says today is gonna be the last one
I know there's never gonna be an easy way out
She's rolling 'round the town with a fast gun
And I know that I can't be there to catch her when she falls

Well, half way down is half way out of here
Either halfway drowned or half way 'round the pier
When you're that far gone

I walked the steps to her apartment with the window by the shore
And saw her curled on the tile through a crack in the door
I've been searching for the words I don't know how to say
I've been searching for the words to make it go away

I spent all of last night and the night before that
With my feet in the sand, the wind's on my back
Watching a ship sail out to a blue wide sea
There must be more than this with a kiss we can't see

Well, half way down is half way out of here
We're either half way drowned or half way 'round the pier

I can't break her, I can't break her fall
She's lying on the back room, crying on the bathroom floor
Singing I can't take it, I can't take any more
Just one reason, one to believe in that's not that far gone
Not that far gone

I held the back of her head and laid her in the bed
And watched the sheets raise and fall to the rhythm of her breath
Turn the lock on the handle and slipped down the stairs
And the cover of the night with diamonds in the air

I'll say a prayer in my breath and take a left at the water
To the rhythm of my feet, a sister and a daughter
To the rhythm of the sea and the breeze in the autumn
As it blows through the trees my hands into the water

Well, half way down is half way out of here
We're either half way drowned or half way 'round the pier

I can't break her, I can't break her fall
She's lying on the back room, crying on the bathroom floor
Singing I can't take it, I can't take any more
Just one reason, one to believe in that's not that far gone

I can't break her, I can't break her fall
She's lying in the back room, crying on the bathroom floor
And I can't take it, I can't take anymore

She says today is gonna be the last time
And I know there's never gonna be an easy way out
