The Lumineers – Salt and the Sea Lyrics

Salt and the Sea by The Lumineers


Could it be I was the one That you held so deep in the night?
On the back staircase
You fell to your knees with tears in your eyes

All that you suffered, all the disease You couldn’t hide it, hide it from me

All alone, scared in your room Would you swear there’s nobody home?
On the bed, laying awake As you prayed he’d leave you alone

I’ll let the darkness swallow me whole I need to find you, need you to know

I’ll be your friend in the daylight again There we will be, like an old enemy
Like the salt and the sea

And they wrote all these prescriptions They wrote me off like a heel
Yeah, the doctors with their medicine Left me to rock in my filth

From the destruction, out of the flame You need a villain, give me a name

I’ll be your friend in the daylight again There we will be, like an old enemy
I’ll be your friend in the daylight again There we will be, like an old enemy
Like the salt and the sea Like the salt and the sea
