Before I Drown

byTx Tall Tales©


Original song lyrics for the new story
"A Town Without Honor"

No place to go
No home to go back to
No destination on my mind
Where do you go
When you're abandoned
Love and betrayal left behind

Out on the road
Mindlessly wandering
A new direction's hard to find
When I get there
How will I know it
My love is lost, and now I'm blind


Lost at sea without an anchor
Flying blind, no telling up from down
Broken heart, black with rancor
Someone save me before I drown

I had it all
I had the good life
Only to find it was all a dream
Cheating wife
False friends and fam'ly
Nothing was as it had seemed

And now I'm lost
My heart's been shattered
Too many pieces to ever mend
I'm on a search
To find life's meaning
And if I'm lucky, perhaps a friend


Lost at sea without an anchor
Flying blind, no telling up from down
Broken heart, filled with rancor
Please won't you save me before I drown

My travels over
My journeys ended
No place left for me to run
I'm tired now
And I surrender
You won, I'm done, Go have your fun

Lost at sea without an anchor
A thousand miles from that miserable town
Traitors all, why don't you thank her
You're watching heartlessly while I drown
Laughing soullessly as I drown
Turn and walk away as I drown
Does anyone care as you watch me drown?

I sink below the waves without a sound
Cold dark and lonely, six fathoms down
