Flood Without Water

Tonight I’m smoking out my window
Cause I’m too tired to walk outside
I know I won’t escape the winter
But you’d be surprised how hard I try
It’s taken so long to recover
And even longer to relieve
How do your spells and incantations
Still hold their power over me?

I can’t wash away
And I long to speak your name
I won’t let you go

Every day is a flood without water
No wind, no rain but there is a storm
Every day is a flood without water
And I can’t take it anymore

Tonight I’ll pile up my belongings
And build myself a barricade
I’ll turn the deadbolt and draw the curtains
And face the choices that I’ve made
I had concerns but had no patience
It’s so clear now that I was wrong
I ain’t no good at conversation
So I hope you’ll listen to my song
It’s hard to wipe away
All the tears rollin down my face
I won’t let you go

Every day is a flood without water
No wind, no rain but there is a storm
Every day is a flood without water
And I can’t take it anymore

So if you’re doors are really closed
I don’t wanna be your ghost
Just tell me to go haunt someone else
And I’ll go haunt someone else
I know it’s not what you deserved
But I need to be heard
So can you hear me? I need you near me

Every day is a flood without water
No wind, no rain but there is a storm
Every day is a flood without water
And I can’t take it anymore
