about

All love is lost.

lyrics

I drowned slowly,
As my lungs spilt all over board,
You watched over me,
Set sail, off into the pale sun,

It's a game that neither of us could win,
It's a forfeit, a simple refrain,
It's a catch 22 all the same,
but now, I'm sleeping with anemone,

Deep blue calming,
Always current but I'm laying still,
High above me,
Something that I want but never will,

Win the game that both of us did play,
Take the stalemate, start over again?
Still a catch 22 all the same,
'Cause I'd, be sleeping with an enemy,

Ten thousand leagues,
My lover, he waits for me,
He longs for the woods, and the trees, and the leaves,
I'll never understand his meaning to be free,

I can't ever see, how we weren't meant to be,
left me alone with a simple goodbye,
let go of my hand and now I'm left to die,

I drowned slowly,
As my lungs spilt all over board,
You watched over me,
Set sail, off into the pale sun,
