let the ship sink

20 May

So why are we even trying?
we both know that we’e wasting our time

jumping ship and watching it sink
leaves a bitter taste, and salt on open cuts…
but let’s be honest neither of us wants to be sailing…
and we’re both too stubborn to admit we’re sick to our guts

So let’s just throw in the towel, don’t lie
we will never be friends, and never be more…
somewhere there, we ended up in icey waters,
so let’s jump ship, while we’re still close to the shore…

I wanted so badly to love you, i guess…
everybody wants to have that someone who is theirs,
but we were both using each other to feed our pride,
i think we need to admit, that neither of us cares….

let’s save our hearts and foolish prides tonight…
kiss one last time and wish each other goodbye…
it doesn’t have to be a stormy night for ships to sink…
it was a clear full moon, when our love sank to the deep…
