lyrics

I've been sleeping for a thousand years
The captain of a vessel I can't steer
They say I need to follow the constellations
But I don't even know my destination

Carve your future on a skipping stone
Watch it sink down to the depths alone
Carve your name into a fallen tree
Maybe someday you'll come back to me

I've been dreaming of a thousand lives
Each of which has not been realized
They say follow your compass to the North
Well, what if my heart just switched poles?

Carve your future on a skipping stone
Watch it sink down to the depths alone
Carve your name into a fallen tree
Maybe someday you'll come back to me
