Asleep At The Helm

From the album Asleep At The Helm Buy Now

 

You always stood beside me

Now you turn the other way

And I know that you relied on me

And I led you astray

I’m hiding in a daydream

With everything I know

It’s time to give it up

But it’s hard to let it go.

 

Cho: I’ve been asleep at the helm

I’ve lost our way

Asleep at the helm

Asleep at the helm

And I’m afraid

That I hurt you

I was after my own goal

I’m sorry, but it’s true,

Y’know, I’m scared to lose control!

 

As a woman you have carried me

You’ve held me deep inside

You’re my mother, you’re my lover

And my friend,

And you’ve finally helped me see

That the journey is the key

And I miss the point of living

When I’m dreaming of the end.

Chorus

 

When I try to see the problem

It has different points of view

Changes give us different

Color pain,

But if we get together

We can make it through

If we share the burden

Then we can stand the strain!

Chorus

 

But the fog is blown away

And though I feel a change

I know there’s more to learn

Won’t you show me how

We can help each other turn it all around?
