The first time that you kissed me
Soundless with your lips on mine
Let your hand in mine deliver me
Feel my bare feet on the ground
Blessed be the mystery
Because while I am a sinking ship at sea
You are a roaring riptide
My last chance at a life lived completely
Without my regrets stinging my bleary eyes
Looking back on fuzzy memories.
How I used to live-- to survive.
After I was built up for years
You were so quick to knock me down
An all-too-painful reality check
I become so detached when you're not around
Because you are a giant and I'm but a speck.
Throw me in the ocean to see if I drown
See if I swim or if I sink
Because I get stronger
Every time that you leave me
I'm more powerful
Every time that you blink.
I wish for once I could close my eyes
And I wouldn't be forced to continue to see
