There’s a cold blue rose at the bottom of the sea.
She said “If love is worth it, you would find it for me.”
Well the heavens opened and she sent her waves.
Oh, I’m not that strong, but I can stand a little rain.
There’s a great white whale on a pink crystal beach.
She said “If you believe in love, you would save her for me.”
So the sky tore open and she sent her storms.
Oh I’m not that strong, but I have promises to keep.
Now there ain’t no sunshine when you’re away from me.
And you can’t see the stars when the city never sleeps.
The wishing well’s run dry and I’m playing for keeps.
She’s all my hope for now, and I’m the noise in all her dreams.
There’s that same midnight train howling out east.
She said “If you could feel the wind, you would leave here with me.”
Well the clouds held still and she whistled her tune.
Oh, I’m not that strong, but you never asked me to be.
