lyrics

The best laid plans
Of mice and men
All hit their fans
Every now and then
This isn't where you thought you'd be

You're running out
Of self belief
So full of doubt
You'd find relief
Castaway on a dying reef

I'm gonna lift you up
Like a rising tide
We're gonna sail away
To a better life
Take all your problems
Lay 'em on me

No need to charge your phone
Just forget your keys
Baby, where we're going
We'll be free
From it all, take your problems
Lay 'em on me
And we'll drown them in the sea
They can all get in the sea

In photographs
You always smile
But you haven't laughed
For quite a while
Because you're sure the joke's on you

'Cause each day goes
From bad to worse
And your cashflow's
In reverse
You've hit the bottom and fallen through

I'm gonna lift you up
Like a rising tide
We're gonna sail away
To a better life
Take all your problems
Lay 'em on me

No need to charge your phone
Just forget your keys
Baby, where we're going
We'll be free
From it all, take your problems
Lay 'em on me
And we'll drown them in the sea
They can all get in the sea

And I know
You hurt more
Than you would ever say
It's not what
You came for
But I sure hope that you will stay
And the hardest part
Of letting go's
Not the fall
Or the freedom
It's the fear that you'll fly
Or things won't change at all
Your problems are anchors
And you don't need them

I'm gonna lift you up
Like a rising tide
We're gonna sail away
To a better life
Take all your problems
Lay 'em on me

No need to charge your phone
Just forget your keys
Baby, where we're going
We'll be free
From it all, take your problems
Lay 'em on me
And we'll drown them in the sea
They can all get in the sea
