Fishes

Written August 14, 2008

I’m just a dove
I’m just a dove who’s alone now
My love has been shot down
Loveless, lacking know-how

I’ve washed the color out of my eyes
From all the times I’ve thought of you
Now I keep them closed tight at night
I can’t let you see they’ve lost their hue

I can see my reflection in my black sunglasses
All I see are my own eyes looking back at me
That’s the closest I’ve come to seeing my own soul
And now I know there’s more to see

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
Giving out kisses now

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
And I’m giving out kisses now

I’m gonna give myself time to think
Do I jump and will I fall?
Do I try to start over again?
I can’t let that happen to me at all

I can see my reflection in my mirror tonight
All I see is my devil, I don’t think it’d dare
The fire in it’s eyes has begun to ignite
All I gotta do is give it air

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
Giving out kisses now

I’m just swimming
I’m just swimming with fishes now
Dreaming up wishes now
And I’m giving out kisses now
