Swim out to the ocean
Drown your thought out at sea
And dip your hands in the water
The same deep water as me

You've been watching for cloudbursts
You've been praying for rain
Drench your soul in the water
Cleanse your heart of the stain
Cleanse your heart of the stain

The river of love
Flows deep through the night
Rolls you in with the waves
Drags you out with the tides

Swim out to the ocean
And drown our thoughts out at sea
And dipped your hands in the water
The same deep water as me

    General Commentas i'm fan of i am kloot and also of the cure, i think that "the same deep water as me" is copy of "the same deep water as you" by the cure. and you've been praying for rain= the cure song prayers for rain.
    probably the meaning of the song is different than the cure's but ... ok maybe it's just an accident.

    General CommentSuch an amazing song. Its one of Kloots best. Creates such an atmosphere. Not sure why their other songs have been commented on but not this one.

    General CommentAn immensely beautiful song...about hoping and praying for love, even though you know that love can hurt you more than anything:
    'You've been watching for cloudbursts
    You've been praying for rain
    Drench your soul in the water
    Cleanse your heart of the stain'
    (I think that all the mentioned water in this song is love, and he is telling her to stop waiting for love and just fall in love with him....hence 'dip your hands in the water, SAME deep water as ME')

    General Comment...but its boring.

    I mean, its beautiful I guess, but there's hardly any variation. It's more of a song you listen to when you need peace or reassurance, but not one you would listen to all the time.

    The lyrics are really beautiful, though. Like the best extended metaphor I've heard.

    General CommentThis song boring? No way. It has just the right atmosphere to keep it interesting throughout the whole song - but hey, I listen to ambient which rarely has a variation in one tracks XD. When I hear this, my knees get weak man... I just can't stand up straight anymore. so touching.

    General CommentAnyone else think the title is a reference to The Cure's "The Same Deep Water As You" from Disintegration?
