  • I stood alone, upon the platform in vain
    Puerto Ricans they were playing me salsa in the rain
    With open doors and manual locks
    In fast food parking lots

    I headed West, I was a man on the move
    New York had lied to me, I needed the truth
    Oh, I need somebody, I needed someone I could trust
    I don't gamble, but if I did I would bet on us

    Like the Dead Sea
    You told me I was like the Dead Sea
    You'll never sink when you are with me
    Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea

    Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
    The finest words you ever said to me
    Honey can't you see,
    I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

    You told me you were good at running away
    Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
    You left with just the clothes on your back
    You took the rest when you took the map

    Yes, there are times we live for somebody else
    Your father died and you decided to live
    It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time
    And I'm glad, 'cause you with cats, that's just not right

    Like the Dead Sea
    You told me I was like the Dead Sea
    You'll never sink when you are with me
    Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

    Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
    The finest words you ever said to me
    Honey can't you see
    I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

    I've been down, I've been defeated
    You're the message I was heeding
    Would you stay,
    Would you stay the night?

    Dead Sea,
    Told me I was like the Dead Sea
    Never sink when you are with me
    Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

    Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
    The nicest words you ever said to me
    Honey can't you see
    I was born to be your Dead Sea Writer/s: Jeremy Fraites, Wesley Schultz
