LIQUID (2007)


(v1)

Your reflection smiles at me
From the condensation on my glass
You keep sipping soberly
I’m getting drunk off my ass

I’m not ready to pay the bill
And I know I’m too messed up to drive
I keep trying to get my fill
I need more of you or I won’t survive

(chorus)

(You’re) Liquid
You’re slipping through my fingers
Vanishing without a sound
Liquid
I try to hold you tighter
One day I’m gonna nail you down

(v2)

Learned to swim when I was ten
And I feel I’m always riding waves
Baptize me and say amen
You know just what my body craves

Gonna take your double dare
And dive until my head’s immersed
Water water everywhere
And soon I’m gonna die of thirst

(chorus)

(You’re) Liquid
You’re slipping through my fingers
Vanishing without a sound
Liquid
I try to hold you tighter
One day I’m gonna nail you down

(bridge)

You wash me clean
You boil and bubble and steam
You pour it straight
When the heat it on
You evaporate
And you’re gone
And you’re gone


(chorus)

(You’re) Liquid
You’re slipping through my fingers
Vanishing without a sound
Liquid
I try to hold you tighter
One day I’m gonna nail you down




Every so often I try to do a "dance floor" lyric. This one came from some note fragments about love slipping through one’s fingers....

A local artist is working on this one with me.
