lyrics

The Flood (S Mahan/A Dowler)

I used to carry your words like an anchor
It took a while but I put ‘em down
I wish we’d ended things before the anger
I was kind 0f hoping we’d be friends by now

But we were finished, before we quit us
And we let things we should have said, stick in our throats
Too tired to leave, but too gone to fix us
Then one day the dam just broke
Oh the flood…the flood

I wore your love like my favorite sweater
You played my heart like your daddy’s old guitar
And I had faith in who were together
But look now baby, where we are

But we were finished, before we quit us
And we let things we should have said, stick in our throats
Too tired to leave, but too gone to fix us
Then one day the dam just broke
Oh the flood…the flood

And oh I cried
And getting over you took sometime
But I was fine…but then I had to see you tonight…..

Oh the flood, that damn ol’ flood…..
