lyrics

I held you tight, as if it would not last
The night — with no light — it wouldn’t seem to pass
My words, empty like my promises
I cursed you

I was trying to let you know that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
To the deep blue

I hoped that you would float up to the surface
But you sunk like a stone down through the ocean
Just like a knife cutting through my soul
I lost my grip and with it my control

I was trying to let you know that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
You go down, down, down, down, down

Go grab yourself a cigarette
And smoke it till that ash burns red

It comes back to you — we’ve gone full circle
And yes it’s true I still yearn for you
And my hands are stained from the blood of this slaughter
And you are gone in the depths of the water

I was trying to let you know that I could never let you go
I just tried to hold you close, to feel your heart beat in my throat
Now it seems I’ve lost control, but from what I do not know
You go down, down, down, down, down
To the deep blue
To the deep blue
