"The Wire" as written by and Justin Rutledge....
Darling its down to the wire
I'm certain we're stalling
I'd die to come sit by the fire but the curtain is calling
If I were a boat I'd sail to where your beauty could blind me
But I am only a wave
I wait for the blue to bind me
Darling its down to the wire
The mercury's rising
The stars are about to retire upon the horizon
If I were a boat I'd name our love after an ocean
But I am only a wave and this is my only motion
I hear them playing our songs in lands where shadows are long
In places we used to be strong they're playing our song
Are you afraid?
Yes, I'm afraid
Are we alone?
Yes, I'm afraid we're alone
Darling its down to the wire
The fire's a forest
I can't tell the chord from the choir
The choir from the chorus
If I were a boat I would anchor my labors inside you
But I am only a wave
I dream but to drown beside you
I hear them playing our song
Wisteria clinging to dawn
In places we used to belong they're playing our song
I hear them playing our song long after the embers are gone
In places our love was all wrong they're playing our song
Are you afraid?
Yes, I'm afraid
Are we alone?
Yes, I'm afraid we're alone
