Raging Sea of Me

You know I cannot tell you why

These thoughts won't leave my head

I'm cast adrift in a sea of doubt
And you're my only thread
You always leave me wondering 
What I did to earn me you
Maybe I'm better than I think I am
But that likely isn't true
I'm sitting sunburned on my boat
A hundred miles from shore
And you're an island tied to me
By a string, and not much more
So I've been blind and wandering
I'm handless in the dark.
I'm trying to open my eyes to see
How you have left your mark
I'm starting now to understand
How much you mean to me
I'm looking deep beneath the waves
That drive my raging sea
Keep me now beside your heart
And grant me small accord
My lonely boat will steady then
And you can climb aboard.
