Last Night

Last night, the dam gave way.

Last night, the dam gave way. All that we'd built,

Last night, the dam gave way. All that we'd built, all that we'd promised

Last night, the dam gave way. All that we’d built, all that we’d promised washed over me.

Your voice, a distant echo,

Your voice, a distant echo, your words etched in my skin.

I beg for seamless sleep,

I beg for seamless sleep, but your face is painted on my eyelids.

I beg for seamless sleep, but your face is painted on my eyelids. So I let the pain envelope me.

I can feel my heart shards pressing through my chest.

I can feel my heart shards pressing through my chest. A bed that’s not my own,

I can feel my heart shards pressing through my chest. A bed that’s not my own, an empty space beside me,

I can feel my heart shards pressing through my chest. A bed that’s not my own, an empty space beside me, a nagging ache inside me.

Help me,

Help me, I can't fight this tide.

Help me, I can't fight this tide. Save me,

Help me, I can't fight this tide. Save me, I can't swim.

I'm still alive,

I'm still alive, just barely.

I'm still alive, just barely... So I let go.

I just give in.
