Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

and every time things start to look up
the world beeats us down
and life decides against us
and somehow, we're apart again

and every time i try to hold on tighter
there are no handles
there are no grips
and suddenly i'm falling

and every time i try to grab your hand
you slip out of reach
and i can't see you anymore
and my face slips under water

and i'm left sketching empty hearts
tears staining the paper
and words won't come to pen

and a little flame in me flickers
in a high wind.
