I stand still... waiting and hoping the ocean will rise... and take me.
I'd like to introduce you to my life.
every day feels like an never ending kite.
Even when we try our hardest, we never know when we will die.
that's why the ocean takes my breath away, it's the only place I always seem to feel the right way.
My feet in the sand, slowly sinking... gasping onto the air, but falling...
Into the abbess, into the place where anything can be.
The water rushes to my feet, it really knows me.
It feels like it's pulling me in... Like a voice of a Mother cradling its child...
I start to walk, striding my way into the other.
The other world, that I still feel is so unknown...
The other place I wish to stay, where nothing decides my fate...
As I walk the water rises and rises, till it has fully taken over me.
I take my last breath, and then... it has come finally, goodbye this is my end...
