"Catch My Breath" as written by Ezekiel L. Lewis, Balewa M. Muhammad, Candice Clotiel Nelson, Floyd Nathaniel Hills and Patrick Michael Smith....
At every turn, I try to follow
Just to keep you in the shallows
Still, it seems you're drifting farther
The undertow is pulling harder

I hold you here but still you falter
Patterns are too hard to alter
I cannot simply let the tide
Drag us under side by side

I turn to call to you, but you
Have fallen under and out of reach
I can't seem to catch my breath at all

Is every time that I exhale
One breath closer 'til I fail?
We only float until we sink
And are we closer than we think?

You fight against me and the tide
Wanting neither as your guide
I'll try to steer you toward the shore
The same way I have done before

I turn to call to you, but you
Have fallen under just out of reach
I can't seem to catch my breath
I reach out to hold you, but you
Keep slipping under, just out of reach
I can't seem to catch my breath at all

And I have tried to reach you
I have tried to breathe for you

If only I could bend without breaking
If only you'd accept without taking
If only I could speak without shouting
If only you could hear without doubting
If only I could breathe without air
If only you would follow me there
I've tried, I've tried
I've tried, and I can't seem to catch my breath
I've tried, I've tried
I've tried, and I can't seem to catch my breath at all

I turn to call to you, but you
Have fallen under and out of reach
I can't seem to catch my breath at all
