DROWNING


Description:

I DON'T LOVE YOU
BUT I'M LOST
THINKING OF YOU
AND THE GHOSTS
OF
SO MANY SPECIAL MOMENTS
THAT PASSED SO QUICKLY
AT THE TIME

AND NOW
THEY COME AND TRACK ME DOWN
AND ECHO 'ROUND AND 'ROUND AND 'ROUND

AND TIME GOES SLOWLY
OR DISAPPEARS COMPLETELY
AND I FEEL LIKE I FADE AWAY
LIKE
DROWNING

I DON'T NEED YOU
BUT IT'S SO HARD
TO BE WITHOUT YOU
THOUGH YOU'RE NOT FAR
AWAY
I CENSOR MY EMOTIONS
AND TELL MYSELF TO BIDE MY TIME
BUT EVERY TIME YOU COME AROUND
AND BATTER MY DEFENSES DOWN
BUT
SO GENTLY
LIKE SOME SWEET HYPNOSIS
AND THE WORLD JUST SLIPS AWAY
I'M DROWNING

IT'S DARK
MY HEART IS POUNDING
I'M SINKING DOWN
INTO A POOL OF PASSION
THERE'S LAUGHTER AS I DROWN

LIKE SO MANY
LOST BEFORE ME
DAMNED BY LUST
AND GONE TO HELL

...AND THEN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES
SOMETHING MELTS
I SHAKE INSIDE
AND COOL WATER
WASHES ME ALL OVER
WASHES ME AWAY
AND I'M STILL DROWNING

JOE JACKSON

A female friend of mine once asked me why I listen to such CRAZY music, people like Joe Jackson, Kate Bush, Prefab Sprout, Todd Rundgren, etc...

While she talked, I put on "Drowning".

She ceased speaking, slowly, distractedly....

By the time "DROWNING" ended, she was proclaiming it as the greatest song ever written....
