Way down
I've been way down
Underneath this skin
Waiting to hear my name again

I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
If I hear them calling
And nothing can hold me

Way down (Do you really want me?)
All the way down (Do you really want me?)
I will hear your voice (Do you really want me?)
But I'll no longer understand (No one's really loved me)

I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
But I hear them calling

I was looking to the sky
When I knew I'd be swimming home
And I cannot betray my kind
They are here, it's my time

I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me (Do you really want me?)
I adore you still
But I hear them calling, (calling)
And nothing can hold me
