Lyrics Edit

You've whispered out loud
But your breeze doesn't bend
We're lying in the palm of your 
hand
No land we see, no place to be
The salt of 
your tears, adds stain to our hearts
There's no long years can 
tear us apart
Our futures entwined with your past
Because when we lie awake
We'll be thinking of you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Bravado is all but gone
And patience is down
You scared us and you've turned 
us around
But you won't let us drown
Because when 
we lie asleep
We'll be dreaming of you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
Blow, grey 
lady blow your ships back home

So answer us when 
we call
And say if you think we're old
When life 
is so short we can stay long
But you'll never be alone
Because one day we'll return
We'll be waiting for 
you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
