when i stayed
i listened to the promises you made
and i prayed
the surface wouldn't crack beneath the weight

i can only blame myself
staring in the light
i was blind before
the ravens took to flight
you were already cut out for this
the daylight soon revealed
you wouldn't turn to dive

when i stayed
i couldn't hear the warnings on the waves
i signed and gave way to the mice
to dine on our parade

i can only blame myself for this frayed alliance
all the while the stakes were piled
impossible to fight
you were already cut out for this
this fading bribe couldn't hide you wouldn't turn to dive

i'll stay until the water rises over me
i'll stay until the water washes over me
i'll stay awake
claim the night to be my own
