Track Name: Drowning
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

Staring at the sea
silently waiting alone.
Waiting to hear a familiar call
from close by.
Other people cry out
but they don't sound so clear.
Buried in the mist
from the deep water you're floating in.

I'm drowning.

Lost by your words,
desperately looking at your face.
Searching for answers,
calling from me to you.
Reach to the sky,
pulling down everything
that doesn't belong.

I'm drowning.
Track Name: Supposed to Be
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

Someday I’ll grow
Into a girl
But for now
I’m trapped in this cage

And I uplift this mask
To show you my real face
Emerged from the darkness
To come back into light


This was no choice
To feel suffocated
By my own skin
If I could go back
And change it all
Wouldn’t you do the same?


And I uplift this mask
To show you my real face
Emerged from the darkness
To come back into light


This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be

Chorus


This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
This is who I’m supposed to be
Track Name: A Boy I Will Never Know
Words and music by Aurora Desmond

A boy I will never know
Will grow up to be a man
Without me

Will you know my name?

A boy I will never know
Will bloom like a flower
But will have no sunlight

And I see the sun
But where is the rain?
