Drowning

I am the soul to drown and the sea to drown in

I wonder what my future holds

I hear waves of music crash on shore

I see danger as my life unfolds

I want only hope for those living poor

I am the soul to drown and the sea to drown in

I pretend that it will be alright

I feel like I should know what to do

I touch the water, free but full of sin

I worry it's too good to be true

I cry for those who know how it's been

I am the soul to drown and the sea to drown in

I understand that he's a man

I say it will be alright in the end

I dream one day to break free of denial

I try too hard not to pretend

I hope he knows why I can't smile

I am the soul to drown and the sea to drown in
