You took the wind from my sails
And left me there to drift away

I woke up in the morning
Stripped of everything
Oh sweet lord its time its time
We moved along
Tonight I'll put the good
Back in goodbye

If the boat don't float and she don't go
This girls gonna blow the morning
I'll turn to face the cold cold sea
And will this ship around
And I'll swallow level tears
Of broken promises

But the calm prevailed with
No whistle to her name
And I could see whose name
Was on your mind
I heard sighs from a million muted
Turncoats at attention
And tonight I'll put the good
Back in goodbye

If the boat don't float and she don't go
This girls gonna blow the morning
I'll turn to face the cold cold sea
And will this ship around
And swallow level tears
Of broken promises

What freedom owes the devil
To the devil I'll be due
I'll walk right down to hell before
I fall in love with you
I'll take this broken heart of mine
And pin it to the floor
And tonight ill put the good
Back in goodbye

If the boat don't float and she don't go
This vessels gonna blow the morning
I'll turn to face the cold cold sea
And will this ship around
And tonight I'll put the good in goodbye
