i am suffocating in this moment
and if i'm around you a second longer
i'm afraid i'll forget who i am.
your pull is stronger than the tide,
and i'm being swept into your essence.
i can no longer fight these feelings
because i don't have the strength to breathe.
(i love you too much)
and so i need my space
even though all i want to do
is spend my heartbeats with you
(please i'm begging you to stay away)
i just need some space
to remember who i am
because i am terrified of losing
the person i've worked so hard to discover
i'm terrified of losing myself
