Sink or Swim.

I’ll try to hold your gaze a minute longer
while dusk melts into black
I’m leaving you with a box of memories
but I’d like my heart back
see he and I have some work to do
to mend his broken seams
but don’t worry about the future dear
go on with your leaving
go on with your leaving

I’ll be the paradigm of quiet resilience

as night falls, I’ll count the stars
I’ll wander down our broken boulevards
I’ll burn this city, destroy this town
I’ll watch it as its crumbling down
I’ll let you go, I’ll set me free
throw away all we used to be
the dawn is breaking, the day is new
what once was one now is two

I’ll learn to keep a healthy distance
so we both can heal
but a million goddamn miles
wouldn’t make this any less real
my broken heart needs a little help
his beat is off rhythm
but don’t worry about my recovery
let me sink or swim
let me sink or swim

I’ll be the epitome of subdued strength

as night falls, I’ll count the stars
I’ll wander down our broken boulevards
I’ll burn this city, destroy this town
I’ll watch it as its crumbling down
I’ll let you go, I’ll set me free
throw away all we used to be
the dawn is breaking, the day is new
what once was one now is two


the five stages of grief are my new companions
you always hated that I made friends so easily
but this isn’t company I wanted to keep
I just wanted you right here next to me

it’s sink or swim

as night falls, I’ll count the stars
I’ll wander down our broken boulevards
I’ll burn this city, destroy this town
I’ll watch it as its crumbling down
I’ll let you go, I’ll set me free
throw away all we used to be
the dawn is breaking, the day is new
what once was one now is two
