about

"A song for a friend who couldn't seem to see how badly she was being treated.
Love is vision impaired"

lyrics

Tired of crying, I see it in your face
Time to start over, find yourself a better place
I still remember when you used to be so strong
Come on, don’t hesitate, come home where you belong

I’ve seen the drinking, and I’ve seen him lose control
You wear the bruises on your body and your soul
How can you love the man, with all he puts you through
How can you rescue him if no one rescues you

So let him keep drinking, let him drown in the beer
But your boat is sinking so fast
It’s time to jump clear
I know the ocean looks frightening and the lifeboat so small
But just jump, I will catch you when you fall

Tired of crying, I see it in your face
Time to start over, find yourself a better place
I still remember when you used to be so strong
Come on, don’t hesitate, come home where you belong

And if you can hear me, jump, while the water’s still calm
Take the first step, fall into my arms
And if you can hear me, just jump, while the water’s still calm
Take the first step, fall into my arms
