Drifted Apart

I tried to grow
But I didn’t know how to apply it
So instead of growing upwards
The more I tried to grow
The more i started sinking down into the unknowns below
Like an anchor that broke away from the boat
I sank deep below
Whilst you stayed afloat
And drifted away
Far from the shore
Into the stormy seas

I tried to grow for us
But trying wasn’t enough, I should of used more heart
The more I tried to grow the more we drifted apart
