UNDERWATER

Pounding in my chest
The beating of my heart
Begging you, please don’t go
Don’t tear us both apart.

Hold me close, don’t let go
I’m drowning, can’t you see?
Pull me out, don’t pull away
You gotta rescue me.

The savage accusations
The total lack of trust
What the hell has happened?
What’s wrong with both of us?

Flailing underwater
Can’t breathe, can’t catch my breath
Something’s there, I know it is
I know there’s something left.

Try to find a reason
A reason to break through
Pull me up, don’t turn away
Can’t make it without you.
