Jonah Kagen – Drowning Lyrics

 

Drowning Lyrics by Jonah Kagen

 

I live in your nightmares
Your fears know my name
I’ve been there for so long
Now the water is flooding the cave
I hear the voices
And all the things they say
I’ll bear all your burdens
But they weren’t mine to take

To keep you safe, I’m

Drowning in your deepest secrets
But I still keep them
Trouble breathing
I love you but you’re my weakness
You don’t know
But I’m sinking in the waves
I need to let you go
‘Cause I can’t carry the weight

Drowning
I can’t carry the weight
Drowning

I’ve been fighting to stay here
One too many nights
Now my feet are caught up
On the rocks as we push through the tide
I see all the memories
I still hold ’em in my mind
But I’m hopeless, I’m trembling
Can’t take it, I promise I’ll try

To keep you safe, I’m

Drowning in your deepest secrets
But I still keep them
Trouble breathing
I love you but you’re my weakness
You don’t know
But I’m sinking in the waves
I need to let you go
‘Cause I can’t carry

The way that you say that you desperately need me
I’m barely alive, now I’m tired, defeated
Gave you my heart and my soul for a reason
Don’t wanna leave you alone but I’m bleeding
I’ve carried the weight of your world on my shoulders
Hope that we’ll find our way back when we’re older
But I gotta go to survive, now, please believe me

To keep you safe, I’m

Drowning in your deepest secrets
But I still keep them
Trouble breathing
I love you but you’re my weakness
You don’t know
But I’m sinking in the waves
I need to let you go
‘Cause I can’t carry the weight
