He's just the kind of man
You hear about 
Who leaves his family for
An easy out
They never saw the signs 
He never said a word
He couldn't take another day

 Carry me to the shoreline 
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water 
And maybe you'll understand 

Once the stone 
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders 
Once the cloud that's raining 
Over your head disappears 
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

She's not the kind of girl
You hear about 
She'll never want another 
She'll never be without 
She'll give you all the signs 
She'll tell you everything 
Then turn around and walk away

 Carry me to the shoreline 
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water 
And maybe you'll understand 

Once the stone 
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders 
Once the cloud that's raining 
Over your heads disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

 Carry me to the shoreline 
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water 
And maybe you'll understand 

Once the stone 
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders 
Once the cloud that's raining 
Over your heads disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years
