So I'll KEEP TRYING

I try to stay afloat
But the world's ebb and flow is pretty intense

In this sea of darkness only you help me
It's unclear what is ahead, there are still many reasons
To stay afloat, but I can't anymore
You hear me, I won't let you down.

Sea, sea, sea
But you know that everyone has his dreams to follow, yes
To stay afloat and not to sink, no, no

Call my name howling from afar

We've been fighting our demons just to stay afloat
Been building our castle just to watch in fall

Doesn't come from the stars.
Stupid [people] to the rescue: the rivers are overflowing,
So you can manage to stay afloat!

The memories of home
Have helped carry the weight of everyday highs and lows
Need to stay afloat
Searching for a place where my heart can rest

Living in this feeling of (like)
Without looking reality in the eye
Without moving forward, just trying to stay afloat
To disconnect, to do everything just to not get screwed

[Verse 1]
Both shared a single rope
Trying to stay afloat
The treasure that you blew

and you don't know about the pity for who couldn't do it
we'll build a wall to keep you safe
nobody speaks if you want to stay afloat
who dares to contradict will pay with fasting

How I like my eggs in the mornin’ (You never ask me)
Takin' comfort in my shadow (Shadow)
But you seem to stay afloat 'cause you're shallow
You can never make a promise for tomorrow

Chiara Dello Iacovo - Toy Soldier

I will become a butterfly
So scary, this life
if the aim is to stay afloat
and the puddles in the street

Like a stone it fell underwater, -
But Bane - even though ponderous,
grasped sharp edges and managed to stay afloat.

Scared of growing old
I would swim far into the ocean
And try to stay afloat
Until my lungs would cough up water

My friends say they found something beautiful
And they like to thank the pharmaceuticals
They'll take anything to stay afloat
It's sick to get sick and addicted to the antidote

It's easier to float
And never make a decision
To stay afloat
And then

G-enka - Everything

I guess that makes me god? Where else do you hope to find such skill, skill in cursive, only over the clouds?
I suffocate the charts like Curly Strings
It is obvious, in a far away village*, on the city's border, in Viimsi, on the Kopli line, I fought hard to stay afloat
Now girls want Metsakutsu to stay on their chest,

Madrugada - Look Away Lucifer

It's a selfplaying piano
And it's so hard to stay afloat
If you wanna make a living here

I’m swimming alone
I’m struggling to stay afloat in your world, though I’m hungry

Spirit betrayed,
Now you drown
Just to stay afloat.

For how long I will have to
Look for a way to stay afloat
My husband has not worked for a while
