Head for the shore, my friend—the forest is on fire, you can see
The smoke climb high into the night.
Don’t be afraid, my friend—to follow the desire in your heart,
You’ll always know which road is right.

Don’t think you’re leaving me behind
Don’t think you’re leaving me behind

I’ll find a way—I’ll take my thousands of mistakes
That broke me down into the dust I am today
I’ll light 'em up in flames ‘fore I wade deep into the water
Let these ocean waves take me away

Learn to be still, my friend—I know that you are tired, I have seen
The color's fading in your eyes.
There’ll come a day, my friend—when everything is quiet, for awhile.
Another place—another time.

Don’t think you’re leaving me behind
Don’t think you’re leaving me behind

I’ll find a way—I’ll take my thousands of mistakes
That broke me down into the dust I am today
I’ll light 'em up in flames ‘fore I wade deep into the water
Let these ocean waves take me away

I’ve fallen ill, my friend—it’s time I should retire to my home.
Never stop until you’re free.
But if you will, my friend—please burn me in the fire when I’ve gone
Give my ashes to the sea.

Don’t think you’re leaving me behind
Don’t think you’re leaving me behind

I’ll find a way—I’ll take my thousands of mistakes
That broke me down into the dust I am today
I’ll light 'em up in flames ‘fore I wade deep into the water
Let these ocean waves take me away
