Ten Foot Pole – Riptide lyrics

I couldve lied
The truth a needle in your eye

The wound a band-aid wont heal
But I persist

And try to tell it
Like it is

What's the point if were not real?


Riptide sweeps me out to drown
Flailing arms and aching chest the more

I struggle, the more it wears me down

How long can I hold my breath?

Another test

You used to say I was the best so
Proud to walk by my side

Now you see everything that's wrong with me

Can you accept it

Will you try?



Still I'm kicking

Driftig farther out to sea
I wont let go of

My dim hopes somehow

Youll make it out to me
