Driftin' Too Far from Shore

I didn't know that you'd be leavin'

Or who you thought you were talkin' to.

I figure maybe we're even

Or maybe I'm one up on you.

.

I send you all my money

Just like I did before.

I tried to reach you honey,

But you're driftin' too far from shore.

.

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

.

I ain't gonna get lost in this current,

I don't like playing cat and mouse.

No gentleman likes making love to a servant.

Especially when he's in his father's house.

.

I never could guess your weight, baby,

Never needed to call you my whore.

I always thought you were straight, baby,

But you're driftin' too far from shore.

.

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

.

Well these times and these tunnels are haunted,

The bottom of the barrel is too.

I waited years sometimes for what I wanted.

Everybody can't be as lucky as you.

.

Never no more do I wonder,

Why you don't never play with me any more.

At any moment you could go under,

'Cause you're driftin' too far from shore.

.

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

Driftin' too far from shore

.

You and me we had completeness,

I give you all of what I could provide

We weren't on the wrong side, sweetness,

We were the wrong side.

.

I've already ripped out the phones, honey.

You can't walk the streets in a war.

I can finish this alone, honey,

You're driftin' too far from shore.

.
