Sinking Down

My dream is always the same We’re out on Stetson Bank And I’m the one who was left behind Divers swim right by With lights in their hands and fear in their eyes And I know it’s me they’re trying to find Sinking down I feel I’m sinking down I pray I’ll wake up scared […]

Something Somewhere

I’m going off to find something And I don’t care where and I don’t care what There’s a wild voice that’s calling me It’s off somewhere that I can’t see You’re not alone You’re not the only one Who knows it’s there Something somewhere Something somewhere You can feel it on a quiet walk When […]

Love Me Now

The storm is pounding I am surrounded in my mind You never doubted I heard you shout it from on high Rain is falling now Thunders calling down the fire Forsake your sorrow Forget tomorrow Come on down and love me now Up through the ceiling All I am feeling is alone Silence revealing All […]
