lyrics

you stayed afloat.
your heart was your boat.

i watched your ship escape from atop my cliff.
and it seemed so sudden,
but there you were navigating waves
like the whole spiral of life dictates.

then you got stuck on a sandbar.
you were so young then, it seemed too sudden.
but you were rocking! a maniac!
to break your boat off the same path.

beneath the cliff, between a crash
you shuffled free with a loud splash.
you broke your boat off the same path.

you knew you'd stay afloat.
an unholy heart makes a watertight boat.

you're gone.
but you rocked the boat.
down through the mud,
up through the waterlogging.
down with the rain,
up with the sun each morning.

you stayed afloat,
up through the waterlogging.
down with the rain,
up with the sun each morning.

your ship is small,
but you will stay afloat.

you're waterlogged,
but you will bail your boat.

your ship is small,
but you will stay afloat.

but the water rushed in far too fast,
far too suddenly.

your name has since been
stolen from my mouth.
