I want to take this heart and throw it off the shore
So it can lay on the bottom of the ocean floor
Till somebody recognizes it's out of place

I want to trace my life in a coloring book
I'll show you the colors
You pretend to look
And you think to yourself is this how it's supposed to be...

And I know it's not me
Though we tend to disagree
As we lie on the bottom of the ocean floor
And the days go by and we slowly fade away
As you play your part in my memories...

Under the waves beneath the undertow
Lies a silent refrain of what I used to know
Like a shipwreck lost waiting for someone else to find
And I know that someone might not be me
As I break the these chains that set me free
And I think to myself that it's better off this way...

And I know it's not me
Though we tend to disagree
As we lie on the bottom of the ocean floor
And the days go by and we slowly fade away
As you play your part in my memories...

Underneath the undertow
You plant a seed and watch it grow
As you try to balance
The weight of the earth
Underneath the undertow
All the years that you let go
You finally know what it is worth

And I know it's not me
Though we tend to disagree
As we lie on the bottom of the ocean floor
And the days go by and we slowly fade away
As you play your part in my memories...
