  • I'm so stubborn, it's how I got here
    So alone, feels like forever
    Wanna swim away and breath the open air
    But I feel so afraid, then I hear you say

    Hang on when the water is rising
    Hang on when the waves are crashing
    Hang on, just don't ever let go

    I'm so hungry, how can I stay here?
    Starving for what I hold so dear
    Like a hurricane it takes everything from me
    Wake me from this dream

    Hang on when the water is rising
    Hang on when the waves are crashing
    Hang on, just don't ever let go

    Hang on when you are barely breathing
    Hang on when your heart's still beating
    Hang on, just don't ever let go

    Three days, thirty years
    So hopeless, doesn't matter
    Don't say it's too late if you blink your eyes
    The sun is rising, the sun is rising, oh

    Hang on when the water is rising
    Hang on when the waves are crashing
    Hang on, just don't ever let go

    Hang on when you're barely breathing
    Hang on when your heart's still beating
    Hang on, just don't ever let go Writer/s: JACLYN ROSE SCHUTROP, LUKE HARRY SHEETS WALKER, TIFFANY ARBUCKLE LEE
