Emery In Shallow Seas We Sail Lyrics

Last updated: 08/23/2009 11:00:00 AM

I got eyes in the back of my head and I, see where you're going with this
I'm not surprised
You take me for a fool, maybe you're right
If I was wiser I would not have let myself come here tonight

You sold yourself, you'll never learn (You sold yourself...)
Here I am watching the summer fading (The summer we shared fade away with the winter)
Your hands were warm on my face. Now they're cold, pushing away (Your hands were warm now...)
Slowly now (Colder than ice and they are slowly pushing me away)
Pushing me away

I knew it (I knew it) right from the start
I got this big, big hole in my heart
I wanted (I wanted) to put you in
But for some reason you just wouldn't fit
You just wouldn't fit

You sold yourself, You'll never learn (You sold yourself...)
Here I am watching the summer fading (The summer we shared fade away with the winter)
Your hands were warm on my face. Now they're cold, pushing away (Your hands were warm now...)
Slowly now (Colder than ice and they are slowly pushing me away)
Pushing me away, pushing me away, pushing me away

Lust can give a man so many regrets
Just this once is what we tell ourselves

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Ships don't sink if they have wind in their sails
But if the wind fails is there hope for me (I guess your love, was only as safe..)
I thought your love was safe as promise you made (..as the promise you made...)

Now I am drowning in your shallow sea; I swim
(you are the storm, the wind and the waves, you break me in two and toss me away)
You are the waves that toss me in.
(I fell apart when I fell for you)

How can I float above the water that fills my lungs?
(you are the water filing my lungs, killing me softly without a word)
Killing me softly without a word.
(Without a word)
