Lyrics

Won't you turn on your light, honey now Please don't turn me away These aren't empty words, I mean all that I say Have I been gone too long, do I seem a stranger now? Well give me a chance to remove your doubts And I'll show you somehow I'm gonna burn my ships into the sea They'll sink to the ocean floor Throw myself at your feet When I wash up on your shore I'll do whatever I must do Gotta find my way back into your arms I know I've been wrong, honey now Your friends keep reminding you About all my faults and how I've been such a fool But that's all in the past, can't we just leave it there? Start again from scratch and this time I swear I ain't going nowhere I'm gonna burn my ships into the sea They'll sink to the ocean floor Throw myself at your feet When I wash up on your shore I'll do whatever I must do Gotta find my way back into your arms There must be some way back So lay down your arms, honey now Don't you see I surrender I'm giving up playing pretender I've let down my guard, just watch the white flag fly Tramped down my fears, but if they should rise I'll turn back the tide I'm gonna burn my ships into the sea They'll sink to the ocean floor Throw myself at your feet When I wash up on your shore I'll do whatever I must do Gotta find my way back into your heart
