Jamestown story - Don't Say No

If only you were a ship
I'd sail the seven seas
Claiming all the land
In the name of you and me
We'd drift down the coast
In search of our new life
But all we'd find is gold
Just to misdirect our minds

Don't say no
Oh don't burn yourself alive
Won't you take one last breath
And hold on tight
And when the clouds come rolling in
To pour their summer tears
Upon your burning skin
I'll be waiting here

If only I was a star
Sewn into the sky
Hanging from a thread
That keeps you awake at night
And when we would look up
The fog would cover me
Hiding all that we shared
And all that we could be


Don't say no
Oh don't burn yourself alive
Won't you take one last breath
And hold on tight
And when the clouds come rolling in
To pour their summer tears
Upon your burning skin
I'll be waiting here

And I'll be waiting here
And I'll be standing here
Are you listening?

Don't say no
Don't burn yourself alive
Won't you take one last breath
And hold on tight
And when the clouds come rolling in
To pour their summer tears
Upon your burning skin
I'll be waiting here

I'll be waiting here
And I'll be standing here
I hope you're listening
I hope you're listening
