DEEP WATER BY AMERICAN AUTHORS

DEEP WATER BY AMERICAN AUTHORS

LYRICS

It comes and goes in waves
It always runs back but it’s never quite the same
Well, I think there’s something wrong with me
Got nothing to believe, can’t you see it on my face
I was going for the title, got hit by your tidal wave, uh
Can’t stay in the shallows, please tell me I won’t wash away
When it pulls me under, will you make me stronger
Will you be my breath through the deep, deep water
Take me farther, give me one day longer
Will you be my breath through the deep, deep water
Ain’t even scratched the surface
Thinking I deserve the dream but I don’t deserve the hurting
I want the flame without the burning
But I can’t find my purpose when I don’t know what my worth is
I was going for the title, got hit by your tidal wave, uh
Can’t stay in the shallows, please tell me I won’t wash away
When it pulls me under, will you make me stronger
Will you be my breath through the deep, deep water
Take me farther, give me one day longer
Will you be my breath through the deep, deep water
When I’m sinking like a stone
At least I know I’m not alone
When I’m sinking like a stone
At least I know I’m not alone
When it pulls me under, will you make me stronger
Will you be my breath through the deep, deep water
Take me farther, give me one day longer…

I have come to understand a certain truth in life: music is quintessential. It takes us into deep, deep water.
I’d like you to;
-Listen to song
-Compose a poem inspired by song

Gone

The water was deep
It was over my head
I tried to call to you
“Don’t be scared”
“I’m coming to help you”
Water filled my mouth and lungs
A wave crashed over me
My furious paddling
Was of no use
Submerged, I remained
Inside my head, screaming
“I love you.
“But I cannot reach you”

Thank you.

Like a relic detached
from time i seek
to understand
this fear ever so present
feelings condensed
in the baking sand
surging through tidal waves
through maelstrom
of emotions to
get on the right lane
of a permeated vision
if you will only
You hold my hand.

I am the shell
Clinging to driftwood
Deepest of waters
Surround my essence
There is no shallow
I swim with the current
Will the shores
I ever reach
The tides are high
And the lighthouse dim
Its keepers
Have fallen asleep

Deep water souls we are
alive in a magical galaxy
sharing our love, breath
water and light.

Dreams we surface upon
they pull us under
burning our memories
like love branded in our hearts.

Deep water is our home
darkness spans this universe
across mother stars
please stay with me.

I can’t
Breathe at
The bottom
Of the sea
In a mire
Of feelings
Please I
Need you
To breathe
For me
As the
Fight has
left me
I need
Your breath
To save me
Or have
You given
Up on me
I will turn
This into
A dream
Where I
Rise above
Thee
In this sacred
Water
Of the deep
