My silver tongue is rusted

So let me have a try or two

To find the words that you deserve


It isn't easy, love


I live wrapped in shadows of used-to-be

 And could-have-been

And all the ways I’ve failed you


There are a lot of things I meant to tell you

Before you left

A lot of sights you should have seen


You could come back, you know


I’ll say it like a promise

But we both know it’s a lie:

Come swim with me in the wine-dark sea

And this time I won’t change my mind"
