Forever Adrift

Adrift and alone with you
On an endless sea.
Stuck in a boat with you
‘Cause the world lies in ruins. 
Should we be together forever
As was planned?
Or should we go on like nothing
Ever happened between us?
You took my life from me and I took yours; 
A life for a life.
And we’re both here now
So let’s make the most of it.
Why am I tormented so
By you who took me from myself?

Everything went wrong
Because you chose another.
You chose another because I didn’t satisfy you. 
Was she better?
Was she worth it when she left you in ruins?
Now your eyes are downcast and sad,
Full of anger and grief,
But there’s nothing I can do
Or will do.
‘Cause you left me to the nothing.

The endless sea consumes my thoughts
For every day, night, second, and minute.
For an hour my eyes wander to your face 
And I think, What did I ever see in you?
The answer to this is simple.
I saw a dear friend;
One that thought friendship could never be enough
And someone who could love me. 
But I was wrong
And nothing can change that 
‘Cause I won’t be broken ever again.

Broken is how you left me.
Torn, broken, collapsed, 
I wasn’t myself. 
I can never be myself 
With you around me.
You surround me in life;
You surround me in my mind.
I can’t help but dream about you,
I can’t help but think about you,
I can’t help anything about you.

Everything is wrong! 
You were supposed to be mine! 
But you’ll never see what was meant to be;
What should have happened
Because the world is lost on you.
The world is lost, 
I am lost.
I am nothing.

    You two are not alone, the boat and the sea are witnesses. They are a part of us, we come from them, flow into them, and because of them you will survive all annihilation. Love you
