This is how it starts And this is how it ends We could fall apart But we could still be friends And you could say goodbye Yeah, you could walk away And I'll be OK One day I'll write a song for you Without any chorus you can sing to Is it this one? Well, it'll do This is how it starts And this is how it ends
2.
Maybe you're a scientist And maybe I'm just optimistic Maybe we could step outside and talk about a thing or two But you gave up on cigarettes And I gave up on Godless girlfriends Maybe we should stay inside and think of something better to do I'm taking a ride with a pretty girl by my side And it's alright if I don't kiss her goodnight 65 'cause we don't care if we get there on time And it's alright for the first time in our lives

I know now that you saw me Hiding under the oleander tree I'm so terrible at hide and seek But you found every single other one but me Now is not forever I could fall apart Like I fell apart The night I fell apart in your arms

We've got a secret or two Between me and you But now I'm battered and bruised at the news that you're leaving soon And as I fight through the tears If I can't say it clearly, then I'll sing it sincerely I'm peerless without you here At least we've never been dancing Down at Hurricane Bay No wine, no romancing To amplify my dismay, today
5.
Take me down to the water Take me down to the water Take me down to the water And wash away my sins I've been drinking And I've been smoking I've been cussing And dirty joking I don't know what state my soul is in So wash away my sins
6.
Pretty words to soothe your soul But I don't know any words to guide you So I'll whisper lullabies And kiss your face goodnight "Leave the day behind you" This is not what I expected This is not what I had planned, planned Shifting my perspective So take me by the hand and I will sing to you
7.
Sittin' home with a song inside my head Sittin' home with a song inside my head The song is not about you Just you wait and see So the words might be about you But the melody's for me Dee dee dee dee dee Take me down to the water Take me down to the water Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away) Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away) Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away) Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away) Sittin' home with a song inside my head Sittin' home with a song inside my head

I don't know if you've been listening I said "I love you" 'bout an hour ago I don't know if you've been listening I said "I love you", oh oh Smoke your cigarette and lie to me You know that I don't mind You know that I would be more than happy To return the favor sometime
9.
Take me down to the water (Take me down, take me down) Take me down to the water (Take me down, take me down) Take me down to the water And wash away my sins
10.
One of these days I will One of these days I will One of these days I will see the light One of these days I will One of these days I will One of these days I will see the light But until then, you can take your time Until then, I'll take my medicine While I'm waiting for you to arrive One of these days I will One of these days I will One of these days I will see the light

You... you know that I love you You know that I'd like to be more than just friends You... you know that I love you That I'm tried and that I'm true, and will be till the end Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da Ba Well, it should come as no surprise I went with the easy rhyme and fell into your eyes I drowned in an ocean of blue It's you
