Away! (From Indian Lakes)

I've always been a stubborn one once I've decided which way I should go But now it seems I've hit a cliff and I am staring at the water down below I used to be much braver when I'd known the waves couldn't touch me on dry land But I am never one to keep it to myself how wonderful I really am And I know that someone out there is a ship that's meant for me But I see the water and my legs shake and I can't breathe or do a thing I've looked upon the setting sun, I've seen the ocean swallow it alive I've witnessed creatures from below and I've watched as hardened sea men began to cry The boats are in their docks but I can't seem to step on board and grab the wheel I've thought it over in my mind so many times and every time I wake to find out it isn't real And I know that I've been trying for too long to get on board But I can see everyone outside waving their arms and screaming their goodbyes If I had to say I'd ask you to take it all away I'd ask you to take it all away I can no longer be here And if I had my way I'd beg you to make it go away I'd beg you to make it go away I can longer stay here And I have been trying for too long to get on board But I can see everyone outside waving their arms and screaming their goodbyes
