Lungs (Smith John)

I started by saving you I thought it was wise So you asked me why? Why give your freedom to stand at my side? I said it makes you mine (At least it was worth a try) We watched our behaviour At least for a while Until we'd had enough You gave in completely Eyes full of stars Until you had to stop The heart beats on and off Soon you went walking And left me to fret I knew not where you'd been Something about you that smells of the sea And you say I am all sky and rain Please don't leave me again So, dear woman I'll answer you now Breathless though I am Silent too, as a thousand miles Empty as a hand I gave up nothing You gave me everything Until you gave me away
