Can't believe,

Gotta be able to breathe.

Stop drowning;

I got the world at my feet.

But why do I feel like I'm suffocating,

Struggling to breathe in a sea of my emotions.

End up in on the side-lines,

Trying to say the right words,

Trying to look how I should.

Trying to reach out,

But scared of popping the bubble.

Smash the hourglass that held memories of time gone past.

Push the innocence, which wrapped me so tightly, away.

Step off the bridge and free-fall into the emptiness,

If only I can breathe, just for a moment.

Take in a deep breath and let go in the night sky.

Smell the freedom which I see through the cold bars I'm stuck behind.

Taste the secrets of the air,

Hear the laughter of a group I cannot belong to.

I just want to breathe.

Walk outside and leave the rest of me behind.

Engross myself in a new story to tell.

If only I can step outside,

Take a walk in the rain.

Lie down under the stars and dream.

Maybe one day.

Can't believe,

Gotta be able to breathe.

Stop drowning;

I got the world at my feet.

I just gotta take it one step at a time.
