Maybe Sometimes You Just Have to Let Go

I'm drowning in the water, and it's coming up so fast
Taking my breath, stealing my calm
Blue and green surround me, murk I cannot see through
While the last piece of safety slips from my grasp
And the land is floating away from me
And with it goes my sanity

I fell through the cracks of the dock
But I was just trying to find my footing
Looking for a way to save myself from the world
And all the demons in my mind
But the land is floating away from me
And I'm floating out to see

I am so tired of swimming
Fighting the current that's dragging me down
I know I can't give up the battle
I can't surrender just yet
But the land is floating away from me
And I'm afraid I'll soon be a new kind of free

There aren't other swimmers to help me
But there are other swimmers
And we're all drowning, deeper and deeper
There's nothing anyone can do
And the land is floating away from me
Which is exactly where I need it to be

Because there's a peace in the fight
We have all come to terms
We can all release the hate
And accept the things we can't change
And the land is floating away for sure
But I've learned to float on my own
