Can you hear me from here?
Please say this voice is traveling across the air
To you, thousands of miles away.
Because I’m out of rope.
I’ve strewn out all my life lines
And I’m still drifting farther away.
Did you see them?
Did you see me when I fell from the boat and drifted away?
Because I’ve been screaming your name for days now
And my voice is getting hoarse.
But I just don’t want to be lost anymore.
I don’t want to be alone on this ocean anymore.
If you hear my voice
Sail in my direction.
If you find one of my lifelines
Grab it and drag me home.
Because I’m tired of feeling lost
And my legs are done treating water.
I’m afraid if you don’t save me soon
My head will go under the waves.
But I will scream until that moment.
Just please tell me
Can you hear me from where you are?
