Off Your Feet - Ron Pope

Two hours out,
Snow coming down
"Love You Should've Come Over" has ended and begun again

The fix that I chase
Is sweeter than I've ever tasted
Living and dying and fading erased

I am the son of a haunted house
Love I can feel the cold coming on now

But one day soon I will forget
The parts of you that made me laugh
And all I will be left with is the dark

You were swept right off your feet
Onto your back, away from me
While I was far away and fast asleep?

Tearing my hair out, drinking the bar down
They turned the lights on
I'm out in the dark now

I sit on the curb
Weight of the world
And make conversation with some forgettable girl

I'd say I'm high as a kite
But why would you fly in my neighborhood this time of night?

And one day soon I will forget
The parts of you that made me laugh
And all I will be left with is the dark

You were swept right off your feet
Onto your back, away from me
While I was far away and fast asleep?

Still I run with no direction
Old before my time
And in a sea of desperation I will soon capsize

Like the river baptized some who seek a secret place
I am swimming for my life to try to find my way

My brother's advice
"Learn to survive" on my own?

And one day soon I will forget
The parts of you that made me laugh
And all I will be left with is the dark

You were swept right off your feet
Onto your back, away from me
While I was far away and fast asleep?
