(Verse 1)

I, can’t take, this suffering, anymore, it, keeps, happening, again, and, again.

The water is, sinking, in, it’s, breaking, apart, my, skin.

How, many, times, must, I, fight, just, to try, to stay, alive?

 

(Chorus) 

I’ve been, swimming, out, in, this ocean.

Trying to, find, my, way, back, home.

Just, when, I, think, I’ve, made it, to the other, side.

I’m, swallowed, by, the nightmare, tide.

It, beats me, down, leaving me, all, alone, to drown.

Never to be, found.

 

(Verse 2)

I'm, slowly, fading, away, from, bliss.

As, the dark, depths, swallow, me, from, within.

It’s time, to sink, or swim.

I, can’t seem, to ever, win.

Without, reasons, to live.

 

(Chorus) 

I’ve been, swimming, out, in, this ocean.

Trying to, find, my, way, back, home.

Just, when, I, think, I’ve, made it, to the other, side.

I’m, swallowed, by, the nightmare, tide.

It, beats me, down, leaving me, all, alone, to drown.

Never to be, found.

 

(Bridge) 

These nightmares, are stealing, away, my, pride.

There, isn’t anyone, by, my, side, to be, my, guiding, light.

How, will I, survive? (How, will I, survive?)

 

(Chorus) 

I’ve been, swimming, out, in, this ocean.

Trying to, find, my, way, back, home.

Just, when, I, think, I’ve, made, it, to the other, side.

I’m, swallowed, by, the nightmare, tide.

It, beats me, down, leaving me, all, alone, to drown.

Never to be, found.

 

(Verse 3)

Maybe, if I, truly open, up, my, eyes.

I'll, see, past, the shadows, in, my, mind.

Nightmare, tide, this, is, the last, time.

You'll, ever, take, away, my, pride.

I, won’t let, you, back, inside.
