Lyrics: Maelstrom

I said earlier in the week I'd post the lyrics I'd written for a friend's music project. Since it's now Friday and I haven't yet done that, I suppose, today's the day.

Maelstrom is the song that appears on Addlepated's first album "Lost In The Snow." As I said in that earlier post, it's based on my novel, Effigy, more specifically the male lead's mindset at the end of the story. Just to warn you: he's not a happy camper....

And now for your reading pleasure....


Maelstrom

Your eyes snared me
Before I knew it’d been done
A single drop of rain
From a sky soaked in sun

And drenched I now am
As the storm carries on
The water keeps rising
But my will to swim is gone

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won’t be long because this storm’s now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down

You kissed me so gently
When the deed was done
You smiled so sweetly
It never occurred to me to run

Is that what you wanted
When you planned your attack?
Me looking in your eyes
As you stabbed me in the back?

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won’t be long because this storm’s now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down

What a clever little whore
With your clever little lies
Lure in your prey with a smile
Then trap them between your thighs

How did you ever get so close?
How did I let it get this far?
I’ve had my share of hurt before
But you were the first to scar

Did you want to hold me under?
Did you want to watch me drown?
Well, it won’t be long because this storm’s now a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down

You were sobbing when I saw you last
Crocodile tears flooded those perfect eyes
Your siren song was on your lips
But for the first time, I saw past your guise

I’m through bleeding for you
But I won’t try to fight my way free
I’m too far gone and done with the world
So let the world be done with me

Come now and hold me under
Come now and watch me drown
I’m a dead man adrift in a maelstrom
And the black is pulling me down.

That's gonna do it for me today and for the week, actually. Tune in next week when I post my second set of lyrics Fight or Flight. Have a great weekend, all...

    And I think I'm going to have to unfollow you and follow you back. This page doesn't load in my reader even though it shows I'm following. So if you see my face pop up at the top of your followers list again that's why.
