Had some good times jumping ship
And showing up on shore
Just pocket change to get us by
A little bit of grease to help us slide
Give us an inch we'd take a mile
And squeeze under the door
Caught some big ones, reeled 'em in
And hung 'em out to dry
From little fish to bigger things
A welcome push, an empty swing
Given the chance we'd start to sing
And watch the world go by
chorus:
And I've tried to take my time
To get back up, hold on and climb
Into the arms you'll always find me
In England and America

Feels good to hold, to not let go
This safety net still hangs below
And if I fall it's good to know
There's England and America
Showed our roots from time to time
And used it to ignite
Our wilder side to get us through
To push and pull and come unglued
A mixture of red, white and blues
Had run right through our life
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
