Hold Me Close

how long do i wait
to get you closer?
do you think that i have got
forever? (and a day)
for all of this i didn't ask
(so what am i to do?)
and i try so hard to understand
(you're all alone)

hold me close and don't let go
i'm drowning slowly
draw me into you again
and breathe right through me
hold me close and don't let go
i'm drowning slowly
draw me into you again
and breathe right through me

do i don the cloak
of the repenter?
or do i feel the pull back to
the center (of the open?)
for all of this i didn't ask
(so what am i to do?)
and i try so hard to understand
(you're all alone)
