the grammar of a sinking ship

well it's so unfair for you
and it's so unfair of me
to be swaying back and forth
i'm a lot more saw than see
and i am more gone than going
i'm more past than i am present
i left or i am leaving
the tense makes little difference

cause it's the meaning of the word
that really matters more
it's the action of the verb
i was tearing then i tore
your heart right out of place
and sent it out to sea
no captain or a first mate
to guide back to me

but i pulled up on the drawbridge
i hoped the ships would pass
but metal scraped on meta
i knew this song would be our last
i tried to call and save you
when i realized what i'd done
but only the gods could have saved you
and then my dear, you were gone....

and the clearance was too low
i'd waited too long
and everything went under
and all the siren songs
couldn't tempt you into jumping
you were already overboard
choking on our memories
while i refused to cut the cord

but i pulled up on the drawbridge
i hoped the ships would pass
but metal scraped on meta
i knew this song would be our last
i tried to call and save you
when i realized what i'd done
but only the gods could have saved you
and then my dear, you were gone....
