Original Song: Drowning
Here's a song I wrote about the perils of waiting around for a bad situation to get better.
Not sure what it is you expect of me
I never learned how to do lonely
The longer that you’re forcin’ me to wait
The more plentiful the mistakes I make
Kiss kiss, pat pat
You promise this, you promise that
Hands off’a me, let me steer
Tied to you, I’m drownin’, dear
Kiss kiss, sigh sigh
How’d the water get so high?
I'm cuttin' ties, free and clear,
So I can stop my drownin’ here…
You compliment my hair and how my lashes frame my eyes
You say “She can’t compare” but now I know you’re spinnin’ lies
Your words, light as air but impossible to breathe
Tell me why exactly you’re deservin’ a reprieve?
When I dare to look behind, I see a shadow in my wake
Only so much disappointment that a girl like me can take
I admit my sins are many, and for those I can atone
Just one head underwater now, belongs to you alone
