I hold my tears till I'm underwater
So y'all don't never see me cryin'
Holdin' my breath till I can resurface
But I can feel myself dyin'

Too long without oxygen in my lungs
Maybe I'm tired
Maybe its time for me to breathe easy
But I could never let you see me

Give in to bein' under fire
No matter how short I breathe I get
Cause to let it show is to let you know
At times how weak I really get

And I'm trying to be strong for the both of us
Hold on for the both of us
But how long can I hold by breathe
For the both of us

Its too much on my shoulders here
And I just can't cope with it
Knowin' deaths round the corner
And I'm standin' so close to him

I'm supposed to show no emotion
But its getting harder to focus
Cause the reality of my life here
Is that I have no control of it

Feel the need to come up for air
But with you there I must hold it
And yeah I know how close I come everyday
But I could never let you know it

Its too much for you to feel my pain
So I send you all smiles
Holdin' my breathe telling you its alright
But the truth is I'm drownin'

Sample is saying â??holdin' my breath for youâ??
�??so you never see me cryingâ??

This is so close to bein' over
But we ain't left here yet
And its been rainin' the whole time
But I managed to never get wet

While those around me soaked
From the moment the first convoy left
But who knows cause the way things goin'
Any day now I could be next

And I ain't trying to see y'all back home
With my problems on your chest
So the truth evolves into what I think you need to hear
Just to relax

So for you I'm always at my best
I continue to see clearly
But I could never lie to myself
And the truth is I'm more than a little worried

But that part of my heart
Stays closed when I'm on the phone with my family
How can I expect them to handle something
I'm havin' a hard time handling

And as strong as I may be
Can carry this weight forever
Cause I'm fallin' apart underneath it
Trying to piece myself back together

Hopin' for the best
But at times the worst seems to get the better of me
So its everything I got not to let you see
What's really troubling me

Can feel my lungs under pressure
And they are beggin' me to breathe
But I can't, not with you standin' there
So I hold my breath till you leave.
