lyrics

Leaving Me Dry

You’re leaving me dry
I’m not gonna talk about how many times I’ve cried
Like walking through the desert with bare feet
I’m torn up, bruised, battered and beat

I’ve been a refugee from my own company
I gave up everything I had
For this chance

When I find my way back home
I’m gonna mark it in blood and stone (stone…stone…stone)
While the ravens circle round my head
Gonna pull up the sheets and stay in bed

The smell of forgiveness is sweet
As I crush the petals beneath my feet
Beneath my feet

You’re leaving me dry
Through the valleys, the mountains and the mire
With lips so dry I cannot even speak
Or see the treasures that lay at my feet

I’ve been a refugee from my own company
I gave up everything I had
For this chance

I’ve been everything to everyone
And nothing to me
Now I wanna be knee deep
I wanna be knee deep
I wanna be knee deep
