Breathe

Suffocated, strangled, I struggle.
Drowning a hundred feet under sea,
Wrapped in an abyss of darkness
I hope to breathe.

Drowning a hundred feet under sea,
The swim toward the surface never seem to end,
I hope to breathe,
Gasping for air I desperately miss.

The swim toward the surface never seem to end
I could see the sky, almost feel its warmth,
Gasping for air I desperately miss,
I stretch out my hand as far as I can.

I could see the sky, almost feel its warmth,
Wrapped in an abyss of darkness,
I stretch out my hand as far as I can,
Suffocated,strangled, I struggle.
