lyrics

My heart is adrift.
Let them hear my name, for my heart is adrift.
I stand alone on the edge of the inlet
bridging the gap between today and yesterday,
shipwrecked on the shores of my own mind,
wondering what has changed.
The infinite dark blue looks exactly as it did before,
though I’ve grown tired of its ever changing tides.
The waves that now numb my feet are the same
that would impale a weaker soul upon the rocks
that so defiantly pierce the surface of this unending abyss.
I stand so long that darkness overtakes the sky
and lights a million stars to guide me.
In them my fate is written,
to them I now look.
My legs buckle beneath me
as the weight of my regrets pins me to the ground.
Water washes over me, filling my lungs,
taking my body with it as it recedes.
I am left a shell as all that I was washes away.
I am falling apart and I am terrified.
Yet still I sing, my heart is adrift, my heart is adrift.
Let them hear my name, for my heart is adrift.
This is not the end of the world.
This will not be the end of me.
