Sent out an S.O.S. call
It was a quarter past four in the morning
When the storm broke our second anchor line

Four months at sea
Four months of calm seas
To be pounded in the shallows
Off the tip of Montauk Point

They call them rogues
They travel fast and alone
One hundred foot faces
Of God's good ocean gone wrong

What they call love is risk
'Cause you always get hit out of nowhere
By some wave and end up on your own

The hole in the hull defied the crew's attempt
To bail us out
Flooded the engines and radio
Half-buried bow

Your tongue is a rudder
It steers the whole ship
Sends your words past your lips
Keeps them safe behind your teeth

But the wrong will strand you
Come off course while you sleep
Sweep your boat out to sea
Or dashed to bits on the reef

The vessel groans
The ocean pressures its frame to the port
I see the lighthouse
Through the sleet and the rain

And I wish for one more day
To give my love and repay debts
The morning finds our bodies
Washed up thirty miles west

They say that the captain stays fast with the ship
Through still and storm
But this ain't the Dakota and the water's cold
Won't have to fight for long

(This is the end)
This story's old but it goes
On and on until we disappear
(This is the calm)
Calm me and let me taste the salt
You breathed while you were underneath

(We are drowning)
I am the one who haunts your dreams
Of mountains sunk below the sea
(After the storm)
I spoke the words but never gave
A thought to what they all could mean

(Wrecked in the deep)
I know that this is what you want
A funeral keeps both of us apart
(Washed up on the beach)
You know that you are not alone
I need you like water in my lungs

(This is the end)
This story's old but it goes
On and on until we disappear
(This is the calm)
Calm me and let me taste the salt
You breathed while you were underneath

(We are impressive)
I am the one who haunts your dreams
Of mountains sunk below the sea
(After the storm)
I spoke the words but never gave
A thought to what they all could mean

(Wrecked in the deep)
I know that this is what you want
A funeral keeps both of us apart
(Washed up on the beach)
You know that you are not alone
I need you like water in my lungs
(This is the end)
