We invested a lot of time and money into what we think is our best song yet. This song is dedicated to Mariel's step-dad who passed away in 2012. This song is also dedicated to anyone who has lost a loved one. Let's be real, death sucks. We hope this song helps you fInd closure as it did for us.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
Holding back my tears,
Faced with what I feared,
Memories start to flash before my eyes
As someone tells me that you've died.
Haunted by the things I never said.
A constant battle in my head,
Wishing I could just forget.
Speechless! My words will go unheard.
Never getting closure.

CHORUS:
Stuck in misery, I'm slippin', slippin'
Grief comes in waves and I am drowning
Life in disarray, I'm slippin', slippin'
Losing my grip and you're not there to save me

VERSE 2:
They say "hold on, try to be strong,
keep your head up, keep your composure."
I say "I can't!"
I'm falling in my knees,
I'm beggin "Please tell me I'm dreaming!"
All hope is gone,
I'm starting to panic and I can't stand it.
All hope is gone,
I can't feel my hands, I can't feel my feet.
Try to stay calm,
Everybody's watchin', everybody's talkin'.
Try to stay calm,
Why can't they let me be?

CHORUS:
Stuck in misery, I'm slippin', slippin'
Grief comes in waves and I am drowning
Life in disarray, I'm slippin', slippin'
Losing my grip and you're not there to save me

BRIDGE:
I'm coming back to earth.
I can feel again, I can breathe again.
My heart's still beating, I hear it pleading,
"Don't give up, it's not the end!"

I look up to the skies and pray
To the heavens, you're watching.
Guardian angle show me the way
Out of the darkness.

CHORUS
Stuck in misery, I'm slippin', slippin'
Grief comes in waves and I am drowning
Life in disarray, I'm slippin', slippin'
Losing my grip and you're not there to save me

OUTRO:
Even though you're gone, I'll carry you with me in my heart
