Holding on to Life

By Bruce Clifford

Coming up for air
She said don't go there
Not knowing what to do
There's a distance between me and you

Holding on to life
Thinking through this twice
A road without a name
Such an unproductive game

Are you the angel in the night
Are you the reason for the fight
Are you the energy and the wave
Are you everything I have saved

Are you the moments in the sun
Are you the panic room and the gun
Are you the limits that were made
Are you everything that I gave

Coming up for air
This is not going anywhere
The voice inside is on the loose
The dawn of each never ending truth
Are you the angel in the night
Are you the reason for the fight
Are you the energy and the wave
Are you everything I have saved

Are you the moments in the sun
Are you the panic room and the gun
Are you the limits that were made
Are you everything that I gave
