too much between us lyrics – a salty dog

there’s you, you’re sleeping over there
whilst me i’m sitting here
with so much sea between us
i can’t make it much more clear
there’ll be no time for crying
we won’t make it more than six
i could change my plea to guilty
but i don’t think it would stick
still those other ratings far too easy to despise
you’ve said so much in silence now i truly am disguised

let him who fears his heart alone
stand up and make a speech
for him perhaps an emperor’s throne
if he could only speak
far too few and far to follow
for shame i’ll heed the cry
be with me when i need a drink
be with me when i die
still those other ratings far too easy to despise
you’ve said so much in silence now indeed i am disguised
