Lyrics
Made a good run but I've run too far
Felt the battle of jalopy in this beat-up car
But I'm drawn to you honey like the sea to the fisherman's daughter
It's just a short walk on the water

If you find yourself alone, if you run out of road
If you get the way it gets when lightning strikes and then goes
I'll be around, it don't matter what the others offer
It's just a short walk on the water

I'm in love with you honey, you've got nothing to fear
You're standing over there and I'm standing right here
The choice is for you, I can't make it for you though I wanna

You and I've been lovers, honey, you and I are friends
Been that way forever since I can't remember when
Everything happens for a reason or at least, it oughta
It's just a short walk on the water

I'm in love with you honey, you've got nothing to fear
You're standing over there and I'm standing right here
The choice is for you, I can't make it for you though I wanna

With the storm in your hair and the salt in your eyes in the cyclone
And the cap of each wave like the first day that you fell in love
And you're in between nothing but the thin air and the unknown
On a night when enough couldn't possibly be enough

Everything is changing now, times are strange
You know me honey like you now my name
My heart is a silver fish on the line of your laughter
It's just a short walk on the water

I'm in love with you honey, you've got nothing to fear
You're standing over there and I'm standing right here
The choice is for you, I can't make it for you though I wanna

Made a good run but I've run too far
Felt the battle of jalopy in this beat-up car
But I'm drawn to you honey like the sea to the fisherman's daughter
It's just a short walk on the water
