“Slipping Away”
written on 9.16.11

there’s a part deep inside me
that feels completely incomplete
drowning under water
and there’s no one to grab my hand
no one should ever feel alone

a smile is what they expect from me
so i’ll fake it so they don’t see my insecurity
love is supposed to make you feel whole
but chasing it has me falling down an endless hole

i can’t swim my way out
so i drink to stay afloat
but now i’m in a sea of emptiness
too confused to know my way out

it’s amazing how day after day
people come and fade away
so few choose to stay
and give their heart away

i’m seeing life in a darker way
and i can’t swim away
i just want to know you care
but no one has time to spare
so i pray for a brighter day

turn the music up
put another shot down
i’ll give this one away
to focus on a brand new day
and dream that happiness will come my way

love never fades
but it slips away
love never fades
but it s l i p s  a w a y. . .
