i'm leaving tomorrow
and i don't know why
there's something that's not right soul
i have no goal

i'm leaving shallow waters
i'm leaving all my dreams of you
i can't go on
i want to run away
i think i'll go today

tomorrow won't help me at all
it won't help me at all
there's something that i told you and you don't know
that it's true

i'm leaving shallow waters
i'm leaving all my dreams of you
i can't go on
i want to run away
i think i'll go today

    General CommentOne of the most hauntingly beautiful songs ever created.
    I believe the meaning is simple: A guy that is leaving his girl. He does not really want to because he still loves her, but some thing in his life compels him to do so. Leaving shallow waters means he is leaving the safety of the relationship, and set out for the deep ocean - uncharted territory.
