lyrics

Falling to pieces
Running away from me
Standing in silence
Staring down at your feet
You try to make sense
of what went wrong
Thinking of when
He led you on
And now you're afraid
It will happen again
'Cause that's the way it's always been

You're treading water
You're running in place
You try to move on but
It's hard for you to face
You're lost in a dream but
You're always awake
You're falling in love now
And it's more than you can take (x2)

Wondering if there's
Anything I can do
Standing alone and
Waiting to hear from you
I try to make sense
Of what's going on
Thinking of when
We sang that song
And now I'm afraid
Of losing again
'Cause that's the way it's always been

You're treading water
You're running in place
You try to move on but
It's hard for you to face
You're lost in a dream but
You're always awake
You're falling in love now
And it's more than you can take

You're swimming harder
You're moving forward
I jump in the water
You're just out of reach
The current's picking up now
And I'm trying not to let you drown
But you're moving down the stream
And there's nothing that I can do

You're treading water
You're running in place
You try to move on but
It's hard for you to face
You're lost in a dream but
You're always awake
You're falling in love now
And it's more than you can take

You're treading water
You're running in place
You try to move on but
It's hard for you to face
You're lost in a dream but
You're always awake
You're falling in love now
And it's more than you can take (x11)

about

Matt Van Des Moines, Iowa

I am a singer-songwriter from the Quad Cities who is currently studying to be a pharmacist at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. Music has been a passion of mine since I was very young, but I don't consider myself to be an extraordinary musician by any means. However, if there is anything I take pride in regarding my music, it is that my songs are honest and reflect ideas that mean a lot to me. ... more
