Raging Sea of Me

You know I cannot tell you why

These thoughts won't leave my head

I'm cast adrift in a sea of doubt
 
And you're my only thread
 
 
 
You always leave me wondering 
 
What I did to earn me you
 
Maybe I'm better than I think I am
 
But that likely isn't true
 
 
 
I'm sitting sunburned on my boat
 
A hundred miles from shore
 
And you're an island tied to me
 
By a string, and not much more
 
 
 
So I've been blind and wandering
 
I'm handless in the dark.
 
I'm trying to open my eyes to see
 
How you have left your mark
 
 
 
I'm starting now to understand
 
How much you mean to me
 
I'm looking deep beneath the waves
 
That drive my raging sea
 
 
 
Keep me now beside your heart
 
And grant me small accord
 
My lonely boat will steady then
 
And you can climb aboard.
