Head above water

Dive right in to save someone from drowning

With out even checking my own surroundings

Not realizing I’m sinking myself

All to save someone else

By the time I realize how far I’ve gone down

The feeling takes over and I’m starting to drown

I call out for help I scream and I wave

Hoping those people I helped save would hear me

Why can’t I see it clearly

They say when a plane goes down

Put your mask on yourself before you help another person

Because you’re situation will worsen

I’m fighting so hard to even just breathe

Not knowing how those people could leave me with such ease

They must be pleased

That I’m fighting so hard just to keep my head above water
