Trying To Breathe


I started writing this new chapter but this page don’t feel the same,
Maybe its my age,

Maybe its experience, 
maybe its the pain,
 maybe that I’m crazy,

Maybe I’m insane,

Maybe I don’t recognise the guy in the mirror,
Maybe he’s a fake,


(I feel change)

I had to find myself before i found my path,

I felt secure when drinking,

Always found a glass,
 to feel this way, 

And now i feel this way, yeah.


I feel change,

And different keys unlocking different chains, 

Its a different day,
I’m finding Solace in this world of pain.


(I feel change)

The day i woke up from the peaceful reality that we call dream,

I saw my walls covered in marker pens from the night before,

With messages from a drunk heart that said,
 paraphrasing,
You loathe yourself,
 learn to love your sober self,

Some subconscious part of me screaming for help, 

Feinding for the healing of health,

Some inner being telling my flesh vehicle it's taken a wrong turn and theres more to do,

I was a liar reading - believe in us, and we can just explore the truth.

And whilst exploring I found, 
life is more then profound,

My life was awful I had thoughts filled with doubts,

My mind had portalled into orbit and out,
To a space where water poured in a drought, 
to a place where,

Gravity meant nothing, 
reality meant nothing,

Vanity meant nothing,
 Sami C meant something,

I had established what i wanted, 
how I'd grab it now I’m honest, 

But not arrogantly, 
just believe my talent will be,

More than an eyeful since my parents met in Paris I see,

More then a bible I’m aware but I feel channeled in peace,

More then religion I feel spiritual and open,

Trying to give all I can cope,
 and I’m still living for the moment,

Death or life, I'll force the latter,
 you climb up your corporate ladder,

Get it right an awesome plan to, 
let my mind just orbit and a,
All thats guaranteed in life is death and change,

So I’m a let it play,
 a different key to open different chains,

(I feel my heart from my chest, a different day so I'll be starting a fresh)


I had to find myself before i found my path,
I felt secure when drinking,
 always found a glass,

To feel this way,

And now i feel this way.


I feel change,

And different keys unlocking different chains,

It's a different day yeah,

I’m finding solace in this world of pain.


(I feel change)
