This Beautiful Republic – The Surface lyrics

Waves crashing over
Think I'm going under
Will the Savior keep me above the surface?

Someone in the distance
Please call me from this
Only You can keep me above the surface

Thinking that it all just might fade away
I'm terrified to fall 'cause I stepped out today
Sinking 'cause I know, I know I think too much
Save me, please save me

My eyes are keeping
Focused only on You
It's You that keeps me above the surface
I just can't stop...

The stronger the wind blows
The lesser my faith knows
And under the water
I'm colder, I'm farther
I wish I could keep it together
I don't want to let You down
