I keep going forward
Without looking back
There’s crimson footprints imprinted in the sand revealing my tracks...
It might not feel like it
But I’m saving you
From me, from a future enemy
From a heavy memory
I need you to fly free
I can’t give you what you need
And it hurts me
Because no matter how shallow the water was we both dove in deep
But as you surfaced I was drowning underneath
Fighting with the current that disguised itself as me
As you were floating on your sea of belief
I realized these waves weren’t meant for me
And I hate that I realized it at the moment I couldn’t breathe
I shouldn’t have dovehead first into your sea..
I can’t hold my breath forever
If I don’t get out now, I’ll inhale, I’ll sink
And you’ll loose sight of me, along with the shore
Soon you’d find yourself lost alone, drifting with no land to explore
Searching for a cure..
For your sinking heart that I’m responsible for
Now you float no more
And I don’t want you to wash up lifeless to my footprints on the shore
I don’t want you to drown in your own waves
Even when I’m the ship that gave you the faith to set sail and be brave...
