falling slowly

I don’t know you, but I want you all the more for that.
Words fall through me and always fool me and I can’t react.
And games that never amount to more than they’re meant
will play themselves out.


Take this sinking boat and point it home,
we’ve still got time.
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice,
you’ll make it now.


Falling slowly, eyes that know me and I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me and I’m painted black
You have su ered enough and warred with yourself,
it’s time that you won.


Take this sinking boat and point it home,
we’ve still got time.
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice,
you’ve made it now.
Falling slowly, sing your melody,
I’ll sing it loud.
