The Last Drop
(Michael Timmins )

I wish I could breath you in and hold you in my lungs
Carry you inside of me, safe from unforeseen catastrophe
and then I would breathe you out and hold you in my arms

I wish you could steal this burden
Excise it from my heart
Take me to a lonely place
Dispose of it without a trace
return to me, with autumn in your eyes

She wants some more but she won’t drink that last drop
‘cause it’s in the last drop where the madness lies
He knows he’s not dreaming but he won’t open up his eyes
‘cause if he opens up his eyes she may have left his side

I wish we could take this time and trap it in a jar
Sip from it when we feel the need
To drink a days filled with memories
of you and me and all that we desire

She wants some more but she won’t drink that last drop
‘cause it’s in the last drop where the madness lies
He knows he’s not dreaming but he won’t open up his eyes
‘cause if he opens up his eyes she may have left his side
