Your mind’s conquest,
And our hearts’ eternal unrest
Go together, hand in hand.
While the weight of my deeds,
Pushes me deep
Down under at our behest.
And I lie at the rock bottom
Of this ocean called life,
Almost as if my hands were tied,
Helpless as if buoyancy has tried.
To thrust me back up,
But hard in my face our memories rub.
So I keep right there, making no effort to retreat.
Staying calm, like there’s nothing to achieve.
Slowly suffocating myself, slowly getting numb.
Building castles in air that one day you will come.
And if you don’t,
What good is life anyway.
Such is the power of our love
That it has both you and I,
Crying our hearts out in the middle of the night.
While our emptiness eats us from inside,
And we dream of what life could have been like.
