standing here by the water
casting my gaze out to the endless sea
but of all the somebodies that i have met here
not one could love somebody like me

i'm wading now, through this water
trying to travel the world in my head
and of all the things i'm far to scared to reach for
it was the one that reached for me that left me dead

well here we are, just molecules apart
i can feel the air move as we tap out this song
and here we are. won't you look down at me
and put me in your pocket for what feels like eternity

i venture out a little deeper
only to get tangled up in seaweed
and the life preserver i left by the shoreline
is just a joke and a distant dream to me

i turn over to float in the moonlight
all i can see is the sky
and my jealousies and grudges are now sailboats
and i shed a tear as they boldly pass me by

well here we are above a sea of sharks
i am flailing out for a feeling
yes here we beneath the pressure of the dark
and the circumstances send me reeling
