Hey, hey, hey

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear

The stairs creak as I sleep
It's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can't even dress myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey, hey, hey

There's an old voice in my head
That's holding me back
Well, tell her that I miss our little talks

Soon it will all be over, and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey
The screams all sound the same
Hey

And though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon

Now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey
The screams all sound the same
Hey

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey
The screams all sound the same
Hey

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
