    She stands twelve feet above the flood
    She stares
    Across the water

    The loneliness grows and slowly
    Fills her frozen body
    Sliding downwards

    One by one her senses die
    The memories fade
    And leave her eyes
    Still seeing worlds that never were
    And one by one the bright birds leave her...

    Starting at the violent sound
    She tries to turn
    But final
    Slips and strikes her soft dark head
    The water bows
    Receives her
    And drowns her at its ease...

    I would have left the world all bleeding
    Could I only help you love
    The fleeting shapes
    So many years ago
    So young and beautiful and brave

    Everything was true
    It couldn't be a story...
    I wish it was all true
    I wish it couldn't be a story

    The words all left me
    Breathing like the drowning man

    Oh Fuchsia!
    You leave me
    Breathing like the drowning man
    Breathing like the drowning man
