Casualties

rain-gif

I.
It was raining hard when you left me
the ship we’re on was about to sink
and all the gang was there.
You held her hand,
As I held mine.

II.
It was raining hard when she left me
the ship we’re on was about to sink
and all the gang was there.
I wished it was her hand,
I was holding.

III.
It was raining hard when he left me
the ship we’re on was about to sink
and all the gang was there.
I was holding his hand,
But she was holding his heart.

    This is really nice…. It’s like you put the situation in a House of Mirrors…. The 3 different reflections were refreshingly deep…. Cheers 🙂

    This made me think of Ann and Kate’s version, especially the line, “but my love was like a sinking ship and my heart was on that ship out in the ocean.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Enc8KEzdYY&feature=youtu.be if you want to hear them sing it…
