about

This song uses the story of certain characters from the Squaresoft video game Final Fantasy VI as a metaphor for losing something important to you when you least expect it. If the story of this song affects you as much as it affected me, play Final Fantasy VI and look into the story of Setzer and Darryl.

lyrics

I'll wait here at the cliffs, just past sunset. You made a bet that you could race me, race me (Around the world). Your ship versus mine: you never had a chance. You never had a chance. I'll wait here at the cliffs, I just passed sunset. Flipping coins into the ocean like eyes that sink straight into addiction. Where were you that night? And where are you now? Where were you that night? And where the fuck are you now? And now I'm waiting at the edge of the earth. And I'm stuck somewhere between a falcon and a dream. Someone had to win and I know it won't be you: I just never thought it'd be me. Three sheets to the wind, there ain't nothing between me and the sky now. But that night, you never came. The news hit harder than a crash into the sea. You were gone. You were never coming back. And now I'm stuck somewhere between a falcon and a dream. Ante up! Someone had to win and I know it won't be you: I just never thought it'd be me. And now I'm waiting at the edge of the earth and I'm stuck somewhere between a falcon and a dream. (Three sheets to the wind: there ain't nothing between me and the sky now.) I'll wait here at the cliffs just past sunset.
