lyrics

You can lie to them, but I can see your bones
You get lonely now and then, but you’re never quite alone
Did they forget your name, when they threw you to the wolves?
All you ever wanted was to just go home

Like open water, you take me further
Drifting away, I’m caught under the wave
It’s the worst parts of me, for the worst of…

You’re in the other room, but I can hear what you said
That I’ve got potential, but I’m losing my head
People say I’m crazy, well maybe I am
But don’t you ever want to feel alive again?

Like open water, you take me further
Drifting away, this ocean is my grave
It’s the worst parts of me, for the worst of you

Sick from the sleeplessness
Counting my weaknesses
Out of my element
Soaked in these old regrets

I need to let this go

Like open water, you take me further
Drifting away, I’m caught under the wave
It’s the worst parts of me, for the worst of you

(Lyrics by James McCurley)
