I Cannot Get It Any Other Way

I cannot get it any other way

Here I can breathe the way I can’t there

As I watch the surface shimmer away

 

Please let me come back to the light of day

I do not need this, I do not care

If I cannot get it any other way

 

I will not find anything today

Nor will I have anything to share

As I watch the surface shimmer away

 

Voices to speak, words to relay

I cannot use them, I begin to despair

I cannot get it any other way

 

As I descend, and I replay

The things I know are still right there

As I watch the surface shimmer away

 

In the blue I want to stay

The surface simply cannot compare

I cannot get it any other way

As I watch the surface shimmer away
