"Head Underwater" as written by and Jenny Lewis....
I've been wearing all black
Since the day it started
When I stopped and looked back
As my mind departed
I've been losing sleep
And I cannot sit still
I'm not the same woman
That you were used to

I put my head underwater baby,
I threw my clothes away in the trash
I stood barefoot on the blazing concrete,
I was waiting for the gut of the thunder
I don't wanna bore you with how I feel,
But when the walls came down,
The shit got real
I never thought I would ever be here,

Looking out on my life
As if there was no there
I messed around with something I always hated
I took a blanket into the bath
Opened my eyes and hallucinated,
I took a nap and woke up in the grass

There's a little bit of magic,
Everybody has it
There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass

My own mortality, I contemplated
Down in the valley I got hypnotized
It left a mark that hasn't faded
That's when I realized

There's a little bit of magic,
Everybody has it
There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass
There's a little bit of magic,
Everybody has it
There's a little bit of fight left in the end
I put my head underwater baby,
I held my breath until it passed
Crossed my fingers and concentrated
I closed my eyes and I was free at last
