Lyrics

This is a song about floating disaster
A mother without her child
The memory of little fingers
Clutching to someone familiar left behind

This is a song about lives unremembered
When the ocean swallowed
Everyone who knew the faces
Unnumbered graces

My last breath crowded by water
Rushing in before I can say what I’d say
That you are my very life
That I’d love you for life
If I could stay

This is a song about houses drowning
And that picture of you that got washed away
I wish I could remember all the old days
And the way that you smiled at me
From the frame

This is a song about how I wish
Living was easy as a choice
Make the right decision, put the blade aside
Wake up in the morning for one more day

My last breath crowded by water
Rushing in before I can say what I’d say
That you are my very life
That I’d love you for life
If I could stay
