O freedom! I seek ye when I gasp for air.
Only I know what I feel when I gasp for air.
All they whole, I want to be as them when I gasp for air.
Sitting behind my smile when I gasp for air.
From whence i sought solace: I gasp for air...
How good it feels to try surreptitiously when I gasp for air.
Shield me! loose clothe, when I gasp for air.
Far far away from a cloistered live, when I gasp for air.
An answer for every inquisitive eye when I gasp for air.
O wishes! how horses I want thou to be when I gasp for air.
Hiding behind my cloud,
Avoiding this heartless rain when I gasp for air.
I'd live life the fullest then I remember: I gasp for air.
How sad I am knowing they articulate of my plight when I gasp for air.
An odious irressistible predicament i find myself by nature when I gasp for air.
From whence my hope cometh from when I gasp for air?
