Slowpoet – Treading Water lyrics

How we move in such peculiar ways;
We to and fro always in tidal waves.
Your glistening teeth
Come gritted from beneath,
As I'm treading water
Struggling just to breathe...
But when you're gone
The water's still and bloodless.
I miss the storm;
Begging the new tide for love.

With each new wave
I'm closer to the grave,
You let me go, my lungs flood slow.
With each new wave
I'm closer to the grave,
You let me go, you let me go.

An awkward sway.
An easy prey.
Through the night
I whet your appetite.
Now you're gone
The water's still and bloodless.
I miss the storm;
Begging the seabed for love.

Leave me here;
The sea will swallow me whole.
As I sink my dear,
I'm free of your control.

With each new wave
I'm closer to the grave,
You let me go, my lungs flood slow.
With each new wave
I'm closer to the grave,
You let me go, you let me go.
