SHIPWRECKED (2006)


(v1)

Let me breathe
Before it’s too late
Before we’re too far gone to care
Before we clutch and gasp for air
And fate
Becomes our destination
Our final station

(v2)

Slip this on
Before I can’t think
Before the need becomes too deep
It’s hard to look before you leap
And sink
In seas of consequences
And lose our senses

(chorus)

Shipwrecked
With you I feel shipwrecked
In endless, wilding waters
Take me under
Drowning in you

(v3)

Grab my hand
While we’re still awake
Before we abdicate the fight
Give over to the night
And shake
In final paroxysms
In cataclysms

(chorus)

Not the greatest lyric. Started as a sexual song, and I took the drowning metaphors and went too far with them. Good loud music would drown out the words.
