She comes to me 
In her prewashed bright blue jeans 
Bag sewn tightly 
Pursed lips are kissing me 
Back up to college 
Just a few miles down the road 
And we remember 
Something we've never been told 
Come up on dry land 
I've had too much to drink 
I'm tired and need some sleep 
Come September 
Cold mornings open up 
Make incisions 
And cut egos will erupt 
What did you find 
Hidden in your mind's deep recess 
When the going gets tough 
You and I must take a rest 
Come up on dry land 
Your coming into your own 
But hey that's not my fault 
Come up on to this dry land 
Won't you let me lend a hand 
Come up on to this dry land 
And when I surfaced 
Mountains opened up like fish 
Breathe through gills now 
And I'm making one small wish 
With heaven beside me 
There is no one can do me harm 
But the devil inside me 
At least then I can stay warm 
Come up on dry land 
She understood her fate 
You can't take stands 
Too late 
Come up on to this dry land 
Won't you let me lend a hand 
Come up on to this dry land
