How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?
Set sail to sea, but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure
Was he the one causing pain
With his careless dreaming?
Been afraid, always afraid
Of the things he's feeling

He could just be gone
He would just sail on
He'll just sail on

How can I be lost
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?
And how can I be lost
When my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

His days drift on inside this fog
It's thick and suffocating
His sinking life, outside its hell
Inside, intoxicating
Ships run aground, like his life
Water's much too shallow
He goes down, down with his ship
Sinking in the shadows

Now a castaway
They've all gone away
All gone away

How can I be lost
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?
And how can I be lost
When my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?

Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me
Forgive me not
Forgive me, forgive me not
Forgive me, forgive me, why can't I forgive me?

Set sail to sea, but pulled off course
By the light of golden treasure
How could he know this new dawn's light
Would change his life forever?

How can I be lost
When I've got nowhere to go?
Shovel streets of gold
How come it's got so cold?
And how can I be lost
When my ship was made to drift?
And how can I blame you
When it's me I can't forgive?
