lyrics

I think the boat is sinking
I know the captain’s drinking
What the hell was I thinking?
And now that the mast is broken
We will sink to the bottom of the ocean

A watery grave
I’m trying to save you but I cannot reach
It’s breaking my back
It’s breaking my back trying to carry you home

I think that I’ve stopped breathing
The ocean is crashing and heaving
You have just left me here grieving

I’m breaking my back
I’m breaking my back trying to carry you home
Breaking my back
Breaking my back trying to carry you home

I think the boat is sinking
I know the captain’s drinking
What the hell was I thinking?

I’m starting to crack
You’re breaking my back
Why don’t you just go home
I’m fading to black
I’m starting to crack, you are breaking my back

Breaking my back
It’s breaking my back
It’s breaking my back
Breaking my, it's breaking my
