Listen to the sound of the seaside crashing
Cloak on a hook in the hallway smashing
Red and yellow teacups tipping over clover
"Have another pull" cries a Piping Plover

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

Sitting in the cool of the shadows under
Can you hear the laughing of the River Daughter?
Under water fish are flashing
In the sky a thunder crashing

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

I look at you and I don't know who I am
I look at you, I see my life as a sham
Am I just a con-man?
(I fooled you once, and I can do it again)

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

You should be here with me now

Looking through the glass as the moon rolls over
Church and Steeple, Hill and Harbor
Do you ever wonder what it is inside us?
Do you ever wonder where it is inside us?

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

I look at you and I don't know who I am
I look at you, I see my life as a sham
Am I just a con-man?
(I fooled you once, I can do it again)

I'll be the one who stays
I'll be the one who stays

You should be here with me now
You should be here with me now
