Wasn’t a cloud in the sky when the news arrived
Just another bluebird day
Just a voice on the phone saying I’m sorry
Everything falls away

So I went down to the sea to look for you
Found the moon and the Milky Way
Watched the tide take back what it gave to me
Everything falls away

I live in the fear that my heart will break
I look for the thing that’ll cure the ache
Just one thing that the world can’t take away
I want to dive beneath the undertow
Down to the bones of the earth below
I want to know, I want to know – where did you go?

I saw you so clear in a dream last night
Diving from the cliffs at Echo Bay
The arc and the pause and the slow descent
Everything falls away
