"Going Under" as written by Paul Allen Crosby, David A. Novotny, Joseph Scott Sappington, Wayne A. Swinny and Bob Marlette....
Pulling myself apart today
To see what's underneath
I analyze the things I say
It's a mystery to me

Why can't I be normal like everyone else?
Why can't I become something more than myself?
I reach and I'm trying to believe in me
But it's just too hard to see

Who am I now
And when will I be found?
What if I drown?
I'm going under now

Lost like a ship without a sail
And terrified to fail
Sick of the sickness that I feel
It's a mystery to me

Why can't I be normal like everyone else?
Why can't I become something more than myself?
I reach and I'm trying to believe in me
But it's just too hard to see

Who am I now
And when will I be found?
What if I drown?
I'm going under now

I'm going under now
I'm going under now

Who am I now
And when will I be found?
What if I drown?
I'm going under now

Who am I now
And when will I be found?
What if I drown?
I'm going under now

    General CommentGreat song I can't believe I'm the first. Obviously the person isn't happy with who they are, they don't feel whole. They just wish they were normal.

    General CommentMy name is Katelyn Fleming and i just turned 16 years old and i found out i was adopoted when i was about 10.A part of me is jealous of everyone else who never had to go through the feelings of being abandoned nor the mystery of identity lurking somewhere beyond my reach. I'm alone to sail my own ship with no course of direction. I have always thought that being adopted would make me different and that no one would understand but the truth is that being adopted means that you are special and that God had a different plan for you in your life! I have been trying to figure out who i truly am and this songs is perfect :)
