A Quicksand Conversation

Lore Constantine
Music by Lore Constantine, Lyrics by Nancy Paolin & Lore Constantine


Verse 1

I’m standing in a desert

And there’s no one there but you.

I’m trying to escape

And there’s nothing I can do.



It’s a quicksand conversation.

I’m dying in your words.

I’m drowning in your message

And nothing can be heard.


Verse 2

It’s swirling all around me.

There’s nowhere else to go.

The more I try to move away

The deeper in I go.


Verse 3

I didn’t see it coming.

It caught me unaware.

It trapped me and it pulled me in

And I can’t come up for air.
