Drowning in dreams or dreaming of drowning.
Sitting on the shore
gazing at deep blue seas
holds no attraction for me anymore.

We were all supposed to live forever.
That was the promise.
That is all I ask for.

I sit motionless
watching the tides,
ignoring the sounds of life.

We were all supposed to live forever.
That was the promise.
That is all I ask for.

How terrible to me
that you should die
in the ageless, continual sea.

No body twisted and mangled found,
no witness to your final exhale
giving way to motionless floating.

Drenched by waves and spray
drenched by tears
I wait upon the beach.

Trembling with sadness,
cold in the Pacific sun,
I awaken and look around.

My breath screams in my chest,
the noises a drowning man makes
reminds me of losing you.

We were all supposed to live forever.
That was the promise.
That is all I ask for.
