Drownin’ Deep Inside Your Sound

Lovely, you’re always lovely

“What are we watching?”
He lay on the blanket beside her.

A vision, you were the one

He watched a falling star then noticed her silence.
“Is he gone?”
She nodded.

Now I am stuck inside a memory
You forgot about our destiny
You buried me, didn’t you?

“Who becomes a priest these days, anyway?”
“Monk,” she corrected.
He laughed, before he could stop himself.

Didn’t you love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground

“He has a duty,” her voice barely audible.
“He should have had honor,” he replied.

Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drownin’ deep inside your sound…

She anguished under the weight of absence
How did her cells not explode?

Here I am stuck inside a yesterday
Everything has given way
You fell from me, didn’t you?

He looked over at her.
She couldn’t fathom this life.

Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drownin’ deep inside your sound…
Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories

“How do I escape my skin?” She choked.
What a waste, he thought.

Maybe I am a crowded mind
I watch your eyes glaze over
Stare down at the floor
You were amazing to me
I was amazing to you
But here we go again

“You could become a nun.”
“What?” She snapped back to the moment. “I’m not Catholic.”
“Small matter.” He waved dismissively.

Didn’t you love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drownin’ deep inside your sound

“You could be to his Abelard.”
“Who?”
“The love story to end all love stories.”

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drownin’ deep inside your sound

“That’s Romeo and Juliet,” she said to the stars.
“Amateurs.”

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drownin’ deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories
