lyrics

When you made your mind you told me, brother,
All about the life I'd soon discover.
Looking through your eyes, I saw the changes,
Soon for me to find I would embrace it.

You stood neck deep there in water so freely.

I'm not coming in, but oh I'm sure it's fine,
You can have your love, but I'm quite happy dry.
Then the raging wind, it led my fingers in,
There it touched my heart, but I'm not coming in.

Soon it pulled me down, water rushing past my ears,
Tearing off the scars that defined my skin for years.
Never short of breath, I swam without a doubt,
There it held my heart, oh I'm not coming out.

We stood neck deep there in water so freely.

When I made my mind, I wasn't ready,
Giving my life while so unsteady.
Now, I don't know how to swim, but somehow I did.
I don't know how to swim.
