I spent a year in the mouth of a whale with a flame and a book of signs 
You'll never know how hard I've failed trying to make up for lost time 
Once I believed in things unseen  I was blinded by the dark 
Out of the multitude to me he came and broke my heart 

When the dust in the fields has flown 
And the youngest of hearts has grown 
And you doubt you will ever be free 
Honey  don't bail on me 

River is wide and oh so deep and it winds and winds around 
I dream we're happy in my sleep, floating down and down and down 
And the tide rushes by where we stand 
And the earth underneath turns to sand 

And we're waiting for someone to see 
Honey, don't bail on me 
Tell Ma I loved a man even though I turned and ran 
Lovely and fine, I could've been, laying down in the palm of his hand 

Laying down in the palm of his hand 
Laying down in the palm of his hand 
Staying down in the palm of his hand 
In the morning you wait for the sun 

And secretly hope it won't come 
But time washes everything clean 
Honey, now don't bail on me 
Don't bail on me 

No, don't bail on me 
Ooh?
