Swimming against this heavy Current,
Wondering if this heartache is worth it.
He says i Haven't seen the world,
That I'm just a lonely girl.
Doesn't mean I don't understand life,
Or feel the stings of certain strife.
I hold onto random objects,
And strive to breath like this.
Sometimes the load Is heavy,
And I think I'm ready.
But then I drift back onto the vast ocean,
And think about the way I'm livin.
On again and off again, can't think of how many times I have ran.
Maybe it's you but most likely me,
I don't believe in love anymore,
But if I did it wouldn't be free and it would be better then folklore.
The wind sends out a loud wail,
As I strive to never fail..
But this is life
And it doesn't matter because troubles will assail
All we can do is fight
Even if it is to no avail
