Distant Sea

I am nothing now
I was never anything
Ashamed, I turn my face away
From the sky

If this is life, I hate the concept
I'm just living out my days
My soul turns ever darker
And I offer nothing

I sit on the sand
Watching darkened waters
They're a reflection of me
As I am now

The air grows cold, the wind picks up
It's stronger than I'll ever be
I raise my arms against the sky
But I offer nothing

A storm is forming in the night sky
Rising over distant sea
The waves come crashing on the shoreline
To remind me of what once belonged to me

I sit on the sand
Watching darkened waters
They're a reflection of me
As I am now

The air grows cold, the wind picks up
It's stronger than I'll ever be
I raise my arms against the sky
But I offer nothing

A storm is forming in the night sky
Rising over distant sea
The waves come crashing on the shoreline
To remind me of what once belonged to me
