Moon Over Water

lyrics

Moon over water what's it I see
It looks like my demons are coming for me
One by the ripple and one by the tree
Stumped by the willow and drowned by the sea

Tastes like sugar but it sits like grease
Feels like a slight dressed up to please
They've come for my soul but they always cheat
Try to see if they can make me shoot myself in the feet

I won't give in says the devil within
Won't let them win
I won't give in to the devil without
I will not doubt. I will not doubt

Skipping through life like a sail on fire
Can you tell when the voice in your head is a liar
Can you cook up happiness without despair
Can you keep up hope though life's not fair

I won't give in says the devil within
Won't let them win
I won't give in to the devil without
I will not doubt. I will not doubt

Holy holy...Oh holy sea
Won't you rock and roll over me
I've been rolling under the train
Every star shine's been bringing rain
Carry over...Oh carry me
I've been sinking into something
Will it bring me a faery dream
Or will it break me and set me free
