Down
On love
I’m so tired
I’ve had enough
I always thought
That it would get better

Maimed
And numb
I have bled
Too long to feel
I’ve died for this dream
I can’t stop living

I wanted to be your crush
I wanted to be someone
I wanted to win your heart

Framed you in memory
And hung you throughout countless dreams
Till the nightmare woke me up
With news that, it’s over

The seas, so mad
Angered beast
Rages to drown my soul
I fight to steer
My troubled ship to safety

The wind, it weeps
Oh how it moans
With deadly blows
The thief
Jealous with envy
Competes for the killing

I thought I could to be your crush
I thought I could be someone
I thought I could win your heart

Nothing to take with me
Not even the memory
Just the thought of what was gone
And the crushed hope in what never was

I saw you there
Windblown dress, calling out
I reached
As air
Stole your shape

Illusions kill
What is real, what is sane
Feeding hope
To the dying

I thought I could to be your crush
I thought I could be someone
I thought I could win your heart

Filmed you in memory
And showed you on every screen
In a story about love
Caught in the re-run of regret

    General CommentI like this song a lot too!

    What is with the gigantic misunderstanding of EVERYONE on the Internet that almost all Drowning Fish songs are AVA songs? Someone needs to set everyone straight.
