the nautical mile lyrics – broadways

a fistful of feeling tossed into the water
the boat has a hole, we’re sinking
take it in stride and stand down the world
it comes much harder than

comes much harder than
comes much harder than
harder than one thousand hard hands

and when it fights, fight back with right minds
yes it is uncertain but i’m surely certain
that we all must get along and
take it in hand and pull yourself up

this comes much harder than
comes much harder than
harder than one thousand hard hands

suck in that gut, you’re in luck
you’ve got a thousand people on your side
take it in stride

and when there’s nothing left to patch the hole
we’ll swim together
let the boat sink to the bottom of the stream
with all its long lost friends

and if it comes down to just you and i
standing on the last corner of the last town of the last city
in the burning world

you’ll still have someone on your side
you’ll still have someone on your side

and when there’s nothing left to patch the hole
we’ll swim together
let the boat sink to the bottom
to the bottom of the stream

with all its long lost friends
abandoned, drowned in loneliness
not strong enough
strong enough to hold our dreams

and if it comes down to just you and i
standing on the last corner of the last town of the last city
in the burning world
you’ll still have someone on your side

life is bigger, so much bigger than all this
life is bigger, so much bigger than all this
