Stranger To Myself

Artist: Frank Dicksee
Stranger To Myself

Gasping for air
The waves push me down
I see you there
And still I start to drown
I fight this feeling
Yet it comes back stronger than before
My head’s sent reeling
Won’t you please unlock this door

I’m a stranger to myself
Wishing I was someone else
I missed the last train
And I’m left with this pain
A white rose in hand
Changes into white sand
Wishing I was someone else
I’m a stranger to myself

I’m left calling
Wondering if anyone will hear me
I seem to be falling
No one to catch me as I drop into the sea
Gasping for air
The waves push me down
I see you there
And still I start to drown

Escape is what I need
But my feet are rooted to the ground
Like a forgotten seed
My spirit will be dead when found
