Falling
SA Samantha Arnold (16-11-90 / Albury)

Falling

Falling broken, falling down, falling deep
Losing you, losing life, losing what I keep
Water up to my neck, drowning so deep
Flowing through the cracks in the nightmare sleep
Chains hanging smothered in frost
Fingering my neck until the game is lost
For as a puppet controlled in the master's eyes'
Following movements in bleak disguise
Shrieking its terror echoes the mountains high
As I drown in this river dying alive
Eyes wet in misery's hold
Lost from love and burning cold
Lying here as I drown in time so long
Counting the words in the lyrics of a song

Singing a lullaby as my lungs fill with water
Like jars they swallow in murdering slaughter
Faded pictures in my memory rips
Flowing down the river silenced on my lips
Watching the clouds fall to the skies
Screeching for you and love that dies
I watch my eyes fall beneath the surface, down
Watching me drown, drown, drown.

Shiver running through seeping skin
Up my spine and lying within
I loved you and watched as you left
I cried at your feet in dying regret
Going away in eternity's grasp
Holding you dear, you let go the clasp
Going away in eternity's grasp
Holding you dear, you let go the clasp

Falling broken, falling down, falling deep
Losing you, losing life, losing what I keep
Burning ice travels my veins tracing stories long
Counting the words in the lyrics of a song
Singing a lullaby as my lungs fill with water
Like jars they swallow in murdering slaughter
Faded pictures in my memory rips
Flowing down the river silenced on my lips
Watching the clouds fall to the skies
Screeching for you and love that dies
I watch my eyes fall beneath the surface, down
Watching me as I drown, drown, drown.

Falling broken, falling down, falling deep
Losing you, losing life, losing what I keep
Wishing I could have you here
Without you, I have disappeared….
