The Sea
Written By Matthew Ryan

I took the stage
To talk to you
But you weren't there
I paid my dues
You disappeared
Like you always did
It made me sad
It made me sick

Oh oh oh
Here we go
I'm not the same
Something's changed
I thought the sea
Would swallow me
But now I'm free
But now I'm free

Alcohol
And empty rooms
Come yesterday
A sonic boom
I recreate
This broken heart
That haunted home
That broken start

Oh oh oh
Here we go
I'm not the same
Something's changed
I thought the sea
Would swallow me
But now I'm free
But now I'm free

To each life
A moment comes
A moment comes
For me it's now
And here it comes
Here it comes

Oh oh oh
Here we go
I'm not the same
Something's changed
I thought the sea
Would swallow me
But now I'm free
But now I'm free
