​We're Just Temorary Ma'am

This song is by White Whale and appears on the album WWI (2006).

Out there in the mud where he overcame the shakes
A-drifting through the flood rejecting good for goodness sakes
She told him, "Once you were invincible, had the sea at your command"
He answered, "Nothing here is permanent, we're just temporary, ma'am"

And erelong is the power, he penned his rank with a silver cross
He bit his lip when she mentioned the ship he fought for but he lost
She called for him to come to her, saying "Won't you be my man?"
He answered, "Forgive me dear, but for now I'm here, but that's just temporary, ma'am"

Hold me my love
Forget what you think of
Tonight I am here
So hold me my dear

In the morning he awakened and was off to find his ship
He left her there asleep in a chair but in her hand a note he slipped
It read, "Darling, please don't worry, I will write you if I can
But if I don't return, you will finally learn you were just temporary, ma'am"

Hold me, my love
Forget what you think of
Tonight I am here
So hold me, my dear
Hold me, my love
Forget what you think of
Tonight I am here
So hold me, my dear

Hold me, my love
Forget what you think of
Tonight I am here
So hold me, my dear
Hold me, my love
Forget what you think of
Tonight I am here
So hold me, my dear

Hold me, my love
Hold me, my dear
Hold me, my love
Hold me, my dear

Out there in the mud where he overcame the shakes
A-drifting through the flood rejecting good for goodness sakes
She told him, "Once you were invincible, had the sea at your command"
He answered, "Nothing here is permanent, we're just temporary, ma'am"
