lyrics

You always got the best of me
Ocean eyes of lead and sleep
Walked with me in waking dream
Through the flame into the sea

And now your chopping the tree
You're chopping our tree right down

You never said a word to me
Bring the night too dark to see
Took my hand and walked me in
And left me in the howling wind

And now your chopping the tree
You're chopping our tree right down

I swear if I still didn't love you
I'd take that axe right from your hand
And bury it so deep in your breastbone
To get it out would take the world's strongest man

You always got the best of me
Ocean eyes of lead and sleep
Walked with me in waking dream
Through the flame into the sea

And now your chopping the tree
You're chopping our tree right down
And now your chopping the tree
You're chopping our tree right down
