drift alone

Don't underestimate the power of suggestion
It's just another force of interconnection
Send a smile through a new hesitation
And lock me down with a glance in this direction
I never noticed you had scars under the tattoos
The ink has bled as you shed the skin that wrapped you.

If we are sinking just hold me close
Better to drown together than drift alone
I know you are thinking this ocean is wide
Better to forget the depth and just hold me tight.

Inching just an increment beyond bewilderment
Figured my disfigurement would hide me from embarrassment
Innocence convinced me to reveal my concealed wings
It must be that trusting has an addictive quality
So once again I am open to be torn apart
I can only hope you will be careful as you hold my heart.

If we are sinking just hold me close
Better to drown together than drift alone
I know you are thinking this ocean is wide
Better to forget the depth and just hold me tight.
