Fish Out Of Water

Standard

I open and close my mouth

Like a fish out of water

Drowning in the air.

It’s my fault

It’s my fault

I can’t find the words to speak

It’s my fault

It’s my fault

I stand there and watch you bleed.

I want to take away your pain

I want to heal you

But I know I am to blame

That I’m the reason you’re turning blue.

Should I step away?

Let you finally be free?

Is it me?

Is it me?

The reason you frown?

Is it me?

Is it me?

Breaking you down?

I’m sorry

I just want to shout

I’m sorry¬†

But then I open and close my mouth

Like a fish out of water

And I drown in all of the questions

Unanswered.

 

My Love

Standard

From the moment I saw you

I was in love

And I carried it

For so long

I tried to give it to you

But you would turn it down

Even when it looked like you wanted to accept

You wouldn’t let me know

So I carried it around

Holding it safe in my heart

Until you were ready

Until I was crippled from the hurt

Eventually I could take no more

And just as I was ready to set it free

You admitted defeat

From the moment you kissed me

I knew I was in love

I am trusting you now

With my fragile heart

Please be gentle

Don’t let it fall apart

Please keep it safe

In the haven of your arms
