The Nearest Distant Shore

by Tricia Yearwood

 

You fight for every breath

Caught without a ship in this sea of neglect

The one you swore to love is pulling you down.

 

You're in over you head

Chilled to the bone by the waters you've tread

Chart a course to land, before you drown

 

Swim to the nearest distant shore

There's only so much a heart can endure

You gave it your best, forgive yourself

You can't hold on anymore

It's not as far as it might seem

Now it's time to let go of old dreams

Every heart for itself

Swim to the nearest distant shore

 

He said for you he'd change

Then he'd let you down and watch you take the blame

You're trapped between his lies and the great unknown

You vowed you would not fail

But this ain't success it's a living hell

There's nothing left to lose, you're already alone

 

Swim to the nearest distant shore

There's only so much a heart can endure

You gave it your best, forgive yourself

You can't hold on anymore

It's not as far as it might seem

Now it's time to let go of old dreams

Every heart for itself

Swim to the nearest distant shore.
