If my ship had sailed
And you were tied up to the mast
I'd leave those shores behind me
Until I breathed my last

Waterboard me baby
A deeper shade of blue
And when you wake beside me
You will find a man brand new

If my life was over
But our love was incomplete
I'd haunt you in your dreams
I'd haunt you in your sleep

And when you hear that train go by
You will think of me
Wrapped up in your arms again
And falling back to sleep

There's got to be something
Something to hold onto
There's got to be something
New for us to do

And if you were a daisy
And you grew upon my grave
Each and every petal
That fell would be replaced

We would watch the sun set
Down over the fields
And I would wake back up
Into myself 'til I was real

There's got to be something...

Let's pull up our stakes
Find a brand new rodeo
It don't matter where
As long as we can go

Pacify me baby
Cool my burning mind
Keep me from my dreaming up
Of different ways to die

There's got to be something...
