lyrics

The water came so quickly
Crashing in my mind
Hands so thin and hungry
Clawing back in time

And if I ever fed you
I hope I gave you what you need
And if the sun still shines upon you
I hope you sometimes think of me
I hope you sometime...
I hope you sometime...
And I'll be hollow
What else could I be?

Tender words unspoken
Turn so cruel on their vine
I never meant to sling an arrow
But love is vicious when it dies

And if I ever fed you
I hope I gave you what you need
And if the sun still shines upon you
I hope you sometimes think of me
I hope you sometime...
I hope you sometime...
And I'll be hollow
What else could I be?
