  • I'm like the water when your ship rolled in that night
    Rough on the surface but you cut through like a knife
    And if it was an open-shut case
    I never would've known from that look on your face
    Lost in your current like a priceless wine
    The more that you say
    The less I know
    Wherever you stray
    I follow
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man

    Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
    Head on the pillow, I could feel you sneaking in
    As if you were a mythical thing
    Like you were a trophy or a champion ring
    And there was one prize I'd cheat to win
    The more that you say
    The less I know
    Wherever you stray
    I follow
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man
    You know that my train could take you home
    Anywhere else is hollow
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man

    Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
    They count me out time and time again
    Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
    But I come back stronger than a 90's trend

    Wait for the signal and I'll meet you after dark
    Show me the places where the others gave you scars
    Now this is an open-shut case
    Guess I should've known from the look on your face
    Every bait and switch was a work of art

    The more that you say
    The less I know
    Wherever you stray
    I follow
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man
    You know that my train could take you home
    Anywhere else is hollow
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man

    The more that you say
    The less I know
    Wherever you stray
    I follow
    Begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man
    You know that my train could take you home
    Anywhere else is hollow
    Begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man

    Hey, that's my man
    That's my man
    Yeah, that's my man
    Every bait and switch was a work of art
    That's my man
    Hey, that's my man
    I'm begging for you to take my hand
    Wreck my plans
    That's my man
