Drowning In My Home

Written By: Steven Delaney

Drowning In My Home - By Steven Delaney, 2011

We've got one more check before my benefits are gone
they helped to get us by but we're barely hanging on
everybody at the bank just gives me the runaround
so my house is up for sale like all the others in my town

But nobody wants to buy and I'm desperate to sell
I ought to walk away and tell 'em all to go to hell

(Chorus)
I woke up underwater and I'm drowning in my home
and the mortgage company won't help me with my loan
I'm not too big to fail so they're letting me go down
I can't pay the bills and I'm about to drown - in my home

It's on a half acre lot in a safe neighborhood
it was built in ninety nine and it's insulated good
we painted all the trim my boy's favorite shade of blue
and we're about to lose it all and I don't know what to do

Cause nobody wants to buy and I'm desperate to sell
I ought to walk away and tell 'em all to go to hell

(Repeat Chorus)

I'm running out of time and I can't catch my breath
my wife won't let on but I know she's scared to death

(Repeat Chorus)
