Prince ....

Can'T Breathe

All on my own
No one on the Net
Or on the phone
And it’s hard to forget things that you’ve said
All these bad thoughts swimming through my head
And I’m short on breath
And I’m short on hope
There’s a pain in my chest
And a lump in my throat
And I feel like a joke
And I feel blue
When all I really want…
Is to hold you

Sitting in fear
I know…
That things won’t work out
And I just wanna shout
But I hope I’m wrong
I just gotta stay strong
Focus on the positive
Because this isn’t a way to live
‘Cuz I feel like I’m dying
But God knows, I’m trying
Sighing, shaking
Struggling to breathe
Wanting, waiting
For this pain to leave
