Left to Dry Lyrics

she was left alone to dry
to contemplate the things that her other half denied
a wave of grief in sight
was cresting and the crash had drowned all her thoughts inside
she was left alone today
to think about the things she had only yesterday
she don't know how he got away
all's fair in love and war but it's an ugly price to pay

she felt like she was left
like she was

left to dry
she was left alone to heal the wounds that hurt from deep inside
she was left to dry
she had something great
she would have changed if she could make it right

she will sleep alone tonight
and the torment of her mind will keep her up to analyze
all the bait and all the brine
and bitter is the taste there is no sweet to this goodbye

and like the splinters from a ship drying on the shoreline
part of something great but nothing by itself
this love was broken taking part of her away with him
pieces lying in the sand and broken shells

One Tree Hill Quotes

Anna: First they put away the dealers,keep our kids safe and off the street. Then they put away the prostitutes, keep married men cloistered at home. Then they shooed away the bums, then they beat and bashed the queers, turned away asylum-seekers, fed us suspicions and fears. We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss. It's funny there was no one left to notice when they came for us.
Peyton: Anna, it's not about who I am, okay. It's about who they are. They are people who hate, and they divide, and they feed off of people who don't fight back. Yeah I could laugh this off, but what about the girl who can't? Who's gonna help her? Silence only makes them stronger.

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore simply rise above the pain in the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. The celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one. Like a team braced against the tempests of the world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held, promises made long ago in the sacred space in our hearts.
