The Great Mistake

The Great Mistake

An empty vessel on an uncharted course
Feels every wave like being trampled by horses
Birds fly over like paper in the wind
An indication of where the land begins
And you stand tall and search for the shore
That’s when you see you’re back to where you were before

Chorus
I want you back – I’m afraid I’ve made a great mistake
I miss your love – I’ve had all the loneliness I can take
I want you back – there’s nothing left of me without you
Without you, it’s just me – on a ship of fools

Your heart pounds quickly as the time seems to slow
Your wounds feel fresh and you’re reminded everywhere you go
To spread your wings you took to the sky
Leaving her smile and your senses behind
And you hit the water when you ran out of steam
You hoped to claw your way out of this unfortunate dream

(Chorus)

You see the breaker but you can’t quite see the shore
Your heart falls while your anxiety soars
The waves crash over as you run aground
Beneath the water your heartbeat’s the only sound
You’re so lost and you’ve got nowhere to turn
You are adrift, you are an island

(Chorus)

Morning comes and the rain breaks
And you half expect the sun but that’s your first mistake
The sky is grey and the shadows weep
And you’re not quite sure how you face another day
And you fall to your knees
Without her love you are incomplete

(Chorus)
