Guitar

The lake is rising higher,

I'm trying to swim.

I try to keep from drowning,

But I am tiring.

And I sink down,

Beneath the water of my tears.

I try to stay above,

The crashing waves,

And I am sinking.

I can't keep going on,

I'm not afraid of dying.

I might accept the last embrace,

At least the water's warm.

And I sink down,

Beneath the water of my tears.

I try to stay above,

The crashing waves,

And I am sinking.

It's amazing just how many tears I've held.

But everything I've held…is killing me.

This room I'm in, this room I've known,

This place is becoming my tomb.

The times I've bled, the times I've shed.

This time was the last time.

The last time that I'll ever cry.

Only because I'll be gone.

And I sink down,

Beneath the water of my tears.

I try to stay above,

The crashing waves,

And I am sinking.
