Stranded in Your Wake

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

 

I just ran into Joey.

You know he’s not the same.

His face is filled with loneliness

And cracked by bitter pain.

 

He tells me ‘bout his broken heart.

He tells me how it aches.

He’s just another drowning man left

stranded in your wake.

 

I had a drink with Billy

He’s feeling kinda blue.

He never thought that it would be

so hard forgetting you.

 

He told me that your memory

was more than he could take.

He’s just another drowning man left

stranded in your wake.

 

You can build a man of flesh and blood,

You can build a man of bone.

But it don’t take much to tear him down

When you’ve left him all alone.

 

I stare into the mirror

and see the damage done.

I guess you put me in my place.

I hope you had your fun.

 

I didn’t think you’d do it

but you did, for goodness sake.

That makes me just another drowning man

left stranded in your wake.

 

I never thought you’d leave me

I guess that’s my mistake.

Now I’m just another drowning man

left stranded in your wake.
