King of the ocean with a heart consumed by the world
Every girl he’s sketched draws a breath
Sneaking away to dances in a borrowed suit
As regal ball gowns flood the golden room
Any man she had yet to serve
Offers her a lifeboat
“I’m Rose,” she doesn’t need to say
Holding her hand he believes in fate
They had to let go
Far from sinking ships, near to each other wherever they are
It’s the fall that shatters, tilts the ship to a halt
Passengers watch young love take it’s last breath
The water isn’t that cold
They’ll be glad to drown.

It seems a bit out of character for Jack to jump but the story is a tragedy anyways, right?
My words feel like a disgrace to beauty
To protect their faith
The Gods sent you
To teach me a lesson, about passion Wrapped in a towel, your silhouette Teaches me patience is virtue
More than writings on a wall
Healing for me never stood a chance.
You’re three flashes of a memory gone by
On two roads that never converge
Yet I’m the one volatile like smoke
You promised infinite nights
So why is today the hardest to get by?
The list is endless so I ask for nothing
And do nothing
I can’t gamble with these cards
I hope that you’re not gone
But I know better, even if the truth is daunting.
Everything’s been said and nothing done
It’s rumored you taste like beer and smell like smoke
Sometimes I get drunk off your vibe
As you take my hand in a make-shift globe
Til we sway away from the floor
Hearsay, what I feel about you
Second-hand words from the people you’ve known
They’re names in a newspaper from before
In a moment of weakness, what do I have to be happy about?
The pause in your step when you see me
The smile in my stance when I see you
An overview of the room but I can never overlook you.
when the strings keeping your heart intact
are pulled together, tight
they close the wounds
shaping everything within
i’ve been working with a heart and less
but i don’t love you more than i tend to myself
i shouldn’t look back
those threads are chains and i can’t surrender
i won’t let you leave me asunder.
For all the rock bottoms we’ve hit
We’re at a bridge
For all the times we’ve let the water in
This time we won’t swim
As the wind blows, we shake
As the gravity calls, we break
Our nature within echoes.
It starts with my gut
And then it rises up
It gets to my head
So I sleep in a strange bed
The voices go dim
Chances of recovery seem slim
It’s drowned with a pill
Pain I can’t kill
I wish I had dreamt
It creeps up when I least expect.
A filament breaks in me when we scream
We always pull our own weight up
I fell through your heart and stood still
I can’t find your bed but I can make it tonight
When you throw your heart around it leaves a stain
Hearts on sleeve melt from burning flames
I don’t hate the dark that much, you’ve been a shadow to tolerate.
