The Coral Castle Lyrics By Andrew Peterson

Late one night I had a notion
An epiphany would be a better word
So I stumbled in the dark down to the ocean
And I pulled my broken heart out of the surf

I had told her I did not have much to offer
And I had told her I would treat her like a queen
But I guess I wasn’t worth what I would cost her
So the night has brought me to this coral reef

So down to the water I will come
To raise for her this castle with my hands
And steal away before the morning comes
‘Cause I don’t need her love to love her all I can

So night on night and year on year
Well, I worked until my hands no longer bled
And I let the ocean bear away my tears
So that she would know that I could love her best

And a desert’s just a sea without a shore
And a lonely man at worst is still a man
And I ain’t gonna cry for her no more
‘Cause I don’t need her love to love her all I can

I often dreamed I saw her face among the people
Who’d come to see the coral fortress I had built
But it may as well have been another seagull
And the castle is there waiting for her still

So down to the water I will come
To wander through this castle on the sand
And steal away before the morning sun
‘Cause I don’t need her love to love her all I can
I don’t need her love to love her all I can
