"It makes me wonder"
You whispered in my ear,
So many questions, so many answers.
Too many songs to hear.
So we let the guitar solo play,
Silent both at the red light.
Traveling without a destination ,
"Who cares? We have all night".
The lake looked dark and empty,
So you reached for a hand,
"Hold me tighter, I'm sinking down".
I lifted you, but I could barely stand.
"I never learned how to swim",
The land was too far, the waters too deep.
We'll find a way, so long as you stay,
"I'm scared". Hold me. Now sleep.
I won't fail you, reach over my shoulders,
"You must go, or we'll both drown"...
I tried, believe me, I couldn't swim.
I'm sorry, I let you down.
And as I head back down the road,
I can still hear your voice like a track,
Your whispers still echo in my ear,
"Don't go! Please! Please come back!
"Good bye, kid", so long my friend.
Must've been time for a new eve,
Guess this really is the end,
"I'm sorry still, but I must leave."
We only wanted to have fun,
But it was half past seven,
"I really must get home".
It was my fault, but now,
Now you're in heaven.
