Flying Free
Backdrop voices, outside noises keepin' me awake.
And as much as I love you, I just need a break.
We lay, huddling closely, but I can't stop this fear.
This fear is a crippling, towering force; I know the end is near.
Because

You left me dangling on the edge of insanity.
And ready to catch me in eager arms was the sea.
The ebb and flow of the ocean nearly lulled me to sleep.
I wish I could've let go and disagreed.
I wish I could've let go and made you leave.
I wish I could've let go and flown free.

The very world in which we stand is
Crumbling to the ground.
And besides our two lonely hearts,
Not a soul is to be found.
Desperate cries and hopeful sighs fill the open air.
Didn't your mama ever tell you that life isn't fair?
Because

You left me dangling on the edge of insanity.
And ready to catch me in eager arms was the sea.
The ebb and flow of the ocean nearly lulled me to sleep.
I wish I could've let go and disagreed.
I wish I could've let go and made you leave.
I wish I could've let go and flown free.

Your hand in mine and mine in yours,
You guide me along the way.
The city is alive, people humming,
Guitars strumming,
Lovers loving in the light of day.
I've missed this buzzing, this feeling, this missing piece.
Perhaps we could start over, at the very least.
Even though

You left me dangling on the edge of insanity.
And ready to catch me in eager arms was the sea.
The ebb and flow of the ocean nearly lulled me to sleep.
I'm glad I didn't let go and disagree.
I'm glad I didn't let go and make you leave.
I still wish I could've jumped
And flown free.

But maybe this time,
You'll be with me.
