This Life

This life is good enough for me
And all the faces I can be
This life permits me to be free
With all the music I’ve achieved

But it’s killing me
There’s no time left to be
Cannot seem to free
From the silence I can’t breathe

This life is good enough for me
If I remember to believe
This life has taken me so deep
So deep at times I cannot leave

And it’s killing me
I can’t deal with what I see
Won’t you set me free
From the reoccurring dream
I’ve tried everything

From the ground up to my chin
I’m tired of battling
For just once I’d like to win

And even in the deepest end
If I can’t swim
I know I’ll float back up again
