As we walk by the water
Running from the shadows
Blinded by the footprints in the sand
And the waves come a’callin
And swallow up the orphans
And sweep them out to far and distant lands

There is no one
Who could take me away from you

As we sit by the fire
Our songs catch the flame
And burn in the ashes
Like blue eyes in the rain
And we curse at the counter
With our hands on the bible
As silent storm of grievance breaks in tune

There is no one
Who could take me away from you
There is no way
I would let that happen

As we walk by the water
Chasing no tomorrows
Running from the razor
That cleanses pain and sorrow
And blindly go a’whistlin
Past graveyards and past counties
Til all the time gets swallowed once again

There is no one
Who could take me away from you
