lets go
what do i owe
i’m caught
between the water
and you
what do i do

i thought
i could stay here
i thought i was so clever
that he’d never notice
like the sun or the wind
or whatever

i can’t see through
out of the blue
we fought
as if we were two
when we were
pale blue
way past due

we bought
what we thought would
save us
the price was high
but so was i
and you taught me to
find a way to

break through
out of the blue
so softly
you taught me
how to
make do
between the water and you
