Hushed whispers in the shadows
Black smoke hissing from the earth
The blowing wind carrying bad news
The hand holding the dagger is steady
The gun’s aim to the heart is locked
Hugs deathly like a murderous actress
Demons feeding on my fear of losing her
Her music a hidden agenda of abuse
I couldn’t breathe when the tide took us out to sea
But you, you turned around and swam away
Left me to drown and went on without me
I had it all, at the top of my game
Or even more, now who is to say
I’d built a wall, and I built it tall
I thought it would keep what’s dear to me
But I saw you shed your old self
And as I swam towards shore I was certain
That you’d be the next thing I’d lose
