Under the Waves

from by Brian McGrath



In your eyes
A sea-storm calling me
In need
A change in scenery

I've been gone
Far from home
It’s what you want
So just let me go
Under the waves

I've been wrong
I've been holding on
The sea sings sad songs

Shine a light, shine a light
On this broken, wounded night
There’s no time
For your little lies

Under the waves
Your hand slipped from mine
With time comes change
Under the waves

Cold, cold water, cover me, cover me
Wash my sins and set me free

No way home
No, don't throw a line
I guess we'll see
If I can swim this time
This time
