Drip

You drank every drip every drop of my energy
You took every tick every tock of my time and then you
Sung every beat every note of my melody and
Gave it a name and then it wasn’t mine

You wept and you wailed ’til my shoulder was sodden and
You ranted and railed ’til my ears trickled blue and then you
Swamped me with need ’til I sunk to the bottom and then
I was a drop in the ocean of you.

Drowning, drowning, I drown in the waking of the waves you made and
Down, sinking down, deeper down ’til the tide can wash your memory away

You drank every drip every drop of my energy
You screamed every dream so my own went unheard and then you
Stuck all your flags in the heart of my territory
And stepped on my head to be sure I was submerged

You stole every star every spark every sparkle and
You lingered in line for some pity for the theft and then you
Stirred up the storms of my latest debacle and you
Snuffed out the rest of the best of my breath ’til

Drowning, drowning, I drown in the waking of the waves you made and
Down, sinking down, deeper down ’til the tide can wash your memory away

Woman overboard  / All my tenderness forgotten
Everything thrown over / Everything gone rotten
Woman overboard / All your overtures abandoned
Without a hand to hold / Without a leg to stand on
Woman overboard / After everything I’ve given
Nothing left to plunder / In the places I kept hidden

Woman overboard / As the seasons trickle by
I will find myself a lifeline and hang me out to dry…

But until then I’m
Drowning, drowning, I drown in the waking of the waves you made and
Down, sinking down, deeper down ’til the tide can wash your memory away
