"Life is about falling down. Living, however, is about getting back up."
"What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are small matters compared to what lies within us."
"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not."

I find myself at the bottom of the sea
With no one left to care.
D***ed to watch the world without me,
But it’s my fault that I am here.
No one’s hands can reach far down
And save me from this he**,
But I'm too far gone to make a sound
So I know it’s just as well.

Yet salvation somehow finds me
And, with her gentle hand,
Breaks this hold and frees me,
And lifts me from the sand.
I vow to have you in my embrace,
As the warm rays kiss my skin;
To fix this fall from grace,
Save you from your waters and take us home again.
