[verse 1]
far away, I can feel you here
suffocate, pull each other near
feel I'm driftin, driftin (and I can't hold on anymore)
hold me close, let it flow
make me feel like I'm going under

you make me
I've never been this far below the surface
(you make me)
deep as your love I know I don't deserve it

[verse 2]
find a way to calm myselft again
still the same, surrounded in fear again (this obession, i feel the tension)
waters rise, counting all of our tears (and I can't hold on anymore)
and I can't breathe a breath the wasted years

[extended chorus..]
