Watching It All Slip Away

I kept trying to move on, but you kept
Trying to pull me back. You were never
There when my back was to the wall
All the while I was crying and wept
All night. Your hand was on the lever,
Trying to keep control. I could only fall
Without you catching me in the end.
I was watching February, March and
April slip away just as you were fading
Away like a bottle of whiskey. You tend
To avoid the truth. I was afraid to hand
You pieces of me as I was wading
In the deep end with no one to save me.
I was lost in the sea of emotions I could
Only feel in my heart and I was knee
Deep in keeping myself afloat. I would
Die for you as Bonnie would do for Clyde
And as Juliet did for Romeo. Darling,
I would gladly be your ride and die
Until our final days, but as the starling
Began its song I knew you could no
Longer stay until the sun came up.
You already lost me in the afterglow
And I knew I had to fill my own cup.
