Lyrics:

Ghostlight / Breathing Underwater


I stay well what's the point of going?
You've got me by my legs you're holding on so tight.
I break my neck just trying to leave.
I hold my breath you're drowning me.

And we both know what's going on.
And we both know it's killing us.

And through it all i see you,
still standing there,
still staring straight through me.
I turn to run towards you,
but you just look,
as if i could never reach.
Give me some air to breathe.
I'm losing ground.
Give me some air to breathe.
In these last attempts at filling up that space.


I hold my breathe and count the seconds.
But seconds turn to days, then months and years
and lives.
My fingers can't stop, pulling you close.
My bones are breaking, my lungs on fire.

And through it all i see you,
still standing there.
Still staring straight through me.
I turn to run towards you,
but you just look,
as if i could never reach.
Give me some air to breathe.
I'm losing ground.
Give me some air to breathe.
In these last attempts at filling up that space.


I don't know what's going on here anymore.
I don't know what's going on here anymore.
I don't know what's going on here anymore.
I just don't know what's going on.
