Coming Up for Air

by Patty Larkin

Patty Larkin (b. June 19, 1951, Des Moines, Iowa) is a Boston-based singer-songwriter and guitarist.




we are surrounded by so much water
that we might as well get a boat
or we could swim like Neptune's daughters
to the other side of the moat 

coming up for air
rising to a very new
somewhere
coming up for air
on the last breath around 

we are sleeping in a canyon
where the walls rise up to the sky
we could reach the rim by standing
and begin to breathe with a sigh 

coming up for air
rising to a very new
somewhere
coming up for air
on the last breath around 

we are swaying like a willow
that is weeping over the view
we could wave goodbye
and fly into the hills
and into the blue 

coming up for air
rising to a very new
somewhere
coming up for air
on the last breath around 

on the last breath around
on the last breath around
