This is all about the feelings involved the moment you find out you've lost someone significant in your life. For me it felt like I was drowning in a raging sea during a storm.


Dark Overture/Hold My Breath If I could hold my breath forever And let the water carry me I'd let the river current Carry me out into the sea But as it is I think I'm drowning And I can't see the shore And I just can't believe That you won't be here anymore If I could swim forever Through crashing waves upon the sea I'd find a way to save you And bring you back with me But I'm barely treading water But I don't think I care I just can't believe You finally climbed the golden stairs You won't be here anymore And here I slowly drown You ascend on high While I am sinking down And I am forced to save the passengers Of this shipwreck you have bore And I can't believe you won't be here anymore Oh, slipping and sliding, slipping and sliding Down, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
