Where did all my friends go

Casting a line out to sea
fishing for memories of joy and friendship
in the dark waters below
with only fistfuls of seaweed and sorrow to show
where did all my friends go

Echoes I could have cupped in my hands and shot off into the night
They told me I didn’t dive deep enough
I never bothered to tell them I couldn’t swim
I was the lighthouse, the warning sign, and they all stayed away
where did all my friends go

The boat sunk long ago but I’m still here
Appraising the damage that did us in
Something to pass the time while I choke on the blame
I swear you flew down to cast a line out with me
where did all my friends go

You pushed me over or maybe I jumped
My head staying under, I couldn’t come up
That’s when I gave it a rest, let the truth burn my lungs
I swear I saw you smile
and that’s when I found my friends.
