Did you ever picture life like this?
No shooting star to grant your wish
Are you everything you hoped you'd be?
I got somewhere in between
You dropped your miracle down a wishing well
And pray for luck to cast it's spell
To bring you closer to your dreams
That always seem just out of reach

You pray to God, don't know when
But you feel the current pull you in

Try to keep your head above water
It's never been harder
Even when it feels hopeless
You're gonna get through this
Head above water, gotta fight from going under
Even when it feels useless to wish
You're gonna get through this

Have you ever felt like giving in?
Tried for hours but just can't win
Tell yourself you're not good enough
The struggle alone is just too much
No one's there to hear you scream
You gasp for air but cannot breathe
Did you ever think you'd see the day?
When you'd watch your life get washed away

You pray to God, don't know when
But you feel the current pull you in

Try to keep your head above water
It's never been harder
Even when it feels hopeless
You're gonna get through this
Head above water, gotta fight from going under
Even when it feels useless to wish
You're gonna get through this

Did it ever hurt so bad?
That the thought of feeling lost would never end
Well you will think again
Try to keep your head above water
It's never been harder
When it feels hopeless
You're gonna get through this
Head above water, gotta fight from going under
Even when it feels useless to wish
You're gonna get through this

Head above water
Never been harder
Tryin' to keep your head above water
Has never been harder
You're gonna get through this
You're gonna get through this

    A good friend sent me this song recently. In the past 9 months, i've been through hell. A 12 year marriage fell apart dangerously. Then the knight in shining armour that i met and let into mine and my sons lives turned out to be a wolf in sheeps clothing and tore me apart again. Preyed on a broken soul. So now again, i am trying to keep my head above the water. And it is hard when the last two i trusted were abusive in their own ways.

    The last two years i've been trying ... Separation, deadbeat doesn't pay for his 2 girls, father dying the day my house sells, moving to a rental which was a nightmare, divorce, then moving again within a 9 month period, meeting a nice guy then he dumps me, the list goes on... Will it ever get better? Liz

    Wait, was Tyler Conolly spying on me when he was writing this song? I can relate to it so much, I love this song, it speaks to me and it's so awesome, it should be the next single off ''The Truth Is...'' =)

    P.S. Can't wait to get my hands on ''The Truth Is...'' CD. =)
