It Hits Too Close

from Wait By the Water EP by Casey Stratton



Originally written in 1995 but never recorded until June 2012.


It Hits Too Close

Blood stains keep the wish down
My demons have turned this smile to a frown
I see you with your artist's soul
Forget the thought of losing control

It hits too close
Gotta crawl up in a flower
Like she said to
But my heart charges by the hour
Keep your own feelings, I'll keep mine
I'm afraid of this setting free my insides

Hold me back from this one
Stop me, I'm holding the gun
That can wound my foolish notions
That maybe I won't feel these emotions

It hits too close
Gotta stop it at the door
Like she said to
But I think I want some more
Keep your own saviors, I'll keep dying
I'm afraid of this, I wasn't even trying


from Wait By the Water EP, released June 29, 2012
