Underwater, I think that I’m Underwater. And it doesn’t matter which way I swim, Because it’s always the wrong direction.
I want someone to help me; To tell me which way to swim, So I wouldn’t keep on sinking. But I keep on swallowing the water And I can’t speak.
Who keeps stealing the words from my lungs? And ripping them deeper into the water? I’m so sick And tired Of not being able to call for help.
I guess that I have to just swim And if I run out of power, Well at least I can say I tried.
I’ll die And they’ll say I was strong, But that I should’ve asked for help. You can’t scream Underwater.
It will just fill your lungs with water. Or maybe there was a solution That I hadn’t thought of before. I wouldn’t have to get to the surface If I could breathe underwater.
If I couldn’t make it to the top I’d live here as a mermaid And it would be good enough. Maybe I could even learn to be happy Even though I’m surrounded by water alone.
I was Underwater But maybe, I was the company That I needed all along. It’s time I save Myself.
