My 18th Favorite Song of All Time

“Oceans of Envy” by Seven Mary Three

I’ve got a photobooth picture
reminding me of something you said
to me.
“If everything you want is so far out of reach,
move a little closer to me.”

I held my breath as the water rushed in.
I was drowning in the man I’ll never be;
a castaway, but you were there for me.

I did a perfect imitation
of someone who’s alive
before I met you.
Now color seems to have
a taste and a temperature
and everything doesn’t seem so far away.
Forever seems like it’s never gonna be enough.

I held my breath as the water rushed in.
I was drowning in the man I’ll never be.
A castaway, but you were there for me.

I held my breath as the water rushed in.
I was falling through a faded memory.
A castaway, but you were there for me.
