The pressure’s on

Can’t feel it crack,

A thousand reasons

Won’t look back,

The weight of days

Can’t hold them all,

Can’t let them go

To see them fall.

 

Take me down

Oh, take me down now,

Take me down to where,

The water’s clear,

A place where we can breathe,

A place where we can be,

A place where everything,

Is how it ought to be.

 

I walk these streets

Beneath the moon,

Can’t find the answers

Lost too soon,

No one watching

From up above,

No retribution

In kid glove.

 

I can’t show it

If you can’t see,

A promised world that’s

Not to be,

And I can’t hold

All this for you,

If all you have’s

A heart so blue.

 

Take me down

Oh, take me down now,

Take me down to where,

The water’s clear,

A place where we can breathe,

A place where we can be,

A place where everything,

Is how it ought to be.

 

The pressure’s on

Can’t see it drop,

A thousand reasons

Not to stop,

The weight of days

I’ll keep them here,

And with a smile

Erase the fear.
