Frank Turner – Song For Scott Lyrics

I spoke with Scott last night
I was tired but I wasn’t sleeping
And despite what you think I wasn’t drinking
I was just finally ready to listen

And he was there alright
And though he’d probably kill me just for saying this
Given how the both of us are atheists
There it is

There must have been a moment just before you hit the water
When you were filled with a sense of peace and understanding
With the wind in your hair and the light in your eyes
As you realized you were finally escaping
But somehow in that moment you miraculously miss it
Like a wave across a bay never breaking
That’s how I like to think of you
Ever falling never landing
Rolling slowly out to sea and always smiling
You’re always smiling

Goddamn I miss you man
It was just weeks before you left that we were speaking
And I just wish that you had told me you were leaving
Before you walked your final mile

I’m not pissed off at you man
But you had something in your soul that we could recognize
You were one of us and you worked out how you could survive
At least for a while

There must have been a moment just before you hit the water
When you were filled with a sense of peace and understanding
With the wind in your hair and the light in your eyes
As you realized you were finally escaping
But somehow in that moment you miraculously miss it
Like a wave across a bay never breaking
That’s how I like to think of you
Ever falling never landing
Rolling slowly out to sea and always smiling
You’re always smiling

You were a wave across a bay never breaking
You were a wave across a bay never breaking
Out to the sea
Ever falling never landing

You were a wave across a bay never breaking
You were a wave across a bay never breaking
Out to the sea
Ever falling never landing

You were a wave across a bay never breaking
You were a wave across a bay never breaking
Out to the sea
And you were always smiling
