My mamma’s drowning
And she won’t stop
Until she’s sinking
Until all has been forgot
It’s getting heavier
Holding you up
We’re both going under
If you decide you’re giving up

Mamma I need you to swim to shore
Show me you’re fighting that inner war
Isn’t it in you to want to be living like before

So tell me, tell me now
Tell me you’re gonna try
And tell me you don’t wanna break my heart

The water’s getting colder
It’s nearly frozen over
I’m finding it hard to move
And soon we’re going to lose

Mamma’s falling
She’s falling fast
And I can’t reach her
Cause she’s stumbling on the past
Mamma I need you to wake up
Leave what you’ve lost, see what you’ve got
I am what you forgot

Tell me, tell me why
Tell me you’re gonna try
Tell me, cause you’ve been breaking my heart

The water’s growing colder
It’s nearly frozen over
I’m finding it hard to move
And soon we’re going to lose

The water’s growing colder
It’s nearly frozen over
I’m finding it hard to move
And soon we’re going to lose

I just don’t read you, why you calling for help?
You’re letting me go every time I let out my rope
Are you calling, are you calling?
Make me understand

I just don’t read you, why you calling for help?
You’re letting me go every time I let out my rope
Are you calling, are you calling?
Make me understand

So tell me, tell me now
Tell me you’re gonna try
Tell me you don’t wanna break my heart
Tell me, tell me why
Tell me you’ve gotta try
Tell me you don’t wanna break my heart

The water’s getting colder
It’s nearly frozen over
I’m finding it hard to move
And soon we’re going to lose
We’re both growing older
Feelings flowing over
And soon it will be to late
To realize our mistake
