Lyrics

After

I am going down to the waterside to wash your face away
Let the water drown out the words you didn’t say
And my mind will be content with what the water says to me
Cause I’m scared of being broken by the things I didn’t see
Because I lie awake too many nights with the visions in my head
Wrapping in the damp sheets twisted by the words you said
And I’m piecing things together braiding up the tattered frays
Tucking in loose edges of your own sad final days

And I will sing to the water
And the water will sing back to me
And I’ll let it wash away my anger
And I’ll let it wash the blood out of my day

Michael said he saw you but he didn’t understand
When you uncurled your fist and showed a single bullet in your hand
And in Sharpie pen you’d written “don’t do it” on the shaft
So he thought you two could drink a beer and have an easy laugh
But now the phone just keeps on ringing in my head and in my dreams
With hollow eyes and silence I am living in a scream
And the words bled out around me as surely did your life
And I can’t describe the horror now of living as your wife

And I will sing to the water
And the water will sing back to me
And I’ll let it wash away my anger
And I’ll let it wash the blood out of my day

I am going down to the waterside to wash your face away
Pushing down my thoughts let them drown beneath the waves
And I'm holding out my guilt to be taken by the tide
And I’m giving myself back to me and washing clean my life

And I will sing to the water
And the water will sing back to me
And I’ll let it wash away my anger
And I’ll let it wash the blood out of my day

And I will sing to the water
And the water will sing back to me
And I’ll let it wash away my anger
