Words and Music by Marty Shaughnessy

I’m caught beneath these waves and
In some ways I can’t believe it
If you hold on too hard
Well...they’ll always let you go

The angel in silence, she speaks without words
I overheard someone laughing yesterday
I throw these words at the ceiling
But are they falling back on me?

When it all comes down, when it all starts to fade
When it feels like the sun might never shine again

I hear something deep inside your whispering
I feel all the love you have been giving me

It’s hard to explain, this way that I’ve been feeling
I held on too hard and this world went by too fast

Here by this water, sorting my feelings
All this guilt, tangled in reason
You said you’d stay but you’re leaving
Baby...I always knew you would
