lyrics

I’m Still Sinking

Fly like a bird.
Fall like a stone.
hit the water like a dream that’s
All wrapped up in a veil of foam.

Stand upon
The water’s edge
Stare straight ahead
Take one step right off that ledge
Without blinking.

High. High. High. High. High.
What was I thinking?
High. High. High. High. High.
Cause I’m still sinking.

The waters wash
Across my eyes
I mean then surely I am blind
But I’m so amazed at what I find
In this light that’s fading.

So deep beneath
The crashing waves.
There is no one left to save.
And the bubbles rise as if to celebrate
but no glass is clinking.

High. High. High. High. High.
What was I drinking?
High. High. High. High. High.
Cause I’m still sinking.

Her eyes so dark.
Her eyes so deep.
I fell so hard. I fell so steep
That I didn’t even try to speak.

Fall like a bird.
Fly like a stone.
And hit the water all alone
Over and over and over again.

Hear the sirens call in a light still fading
I Hear the sirens call and they’re so persuading

High. High. High. High. High.
What was I thinking?
High. High. High. High. High.
Cause I’m still….
