Fish Don't Feel

© Midnight Island Music

Don't know why we went fishing that weekend
I was looking for quiet and peace
But I found myself in at the deep end
You're more into catch and release
The surface was just like a mirror
The blues seemed to dance in the light
The future had never looked nearer
And the present never so bright

Fish don't feel the hook
Fish don't feel the air
Can tell by your look that you don't care

At this point the details are hazy
Both ways were clear when I checked
Then everything sort of went crazy
In ways I didn't expect
A moment or two in the sunlight
The shock of being held in your hand
An effortless thing if it's done right
I guess we do what we can

Fish don't feel the hook
Fish don't feel the air
Can tell by your look that you don't care

I thought it was something it wasn't
I still have no clue what it was
I want something more and who doesn't
Keep swimming towards someone who does
Don't know why we went fishing that weekend
I was looking for quiet and peace
But I found myself in at the deep end
You're more into catch and release

Fish don't feel the hook
Fish don't feel the air
Can tell by your look that you don't care
