All I've got is this pen and these words locked inside my head
And if I could open the gates and let them
Flood on this paper
These ideas and letters
Then maybe, maybe
The world will know exactly how I feel

And I'll swim, I'll swim
Across this wreckage to write you a message
In the midst of these metaphors and similes that surround me
And I know I'll find the shoreline soon
But in the meantime I'll try to write this song for you

So listen up
I've got so much to say
Will anybody listen, listen?
Words and phrases
Poorly strung together but I'll sing them forever
Though they seem so jaded
I'll still pray it gets to you

And like a sailor
I'll try to find you
And like your hero
I''ll try to save you
I'll search for you
I'll swim to the bottom of this ocean
Yause you're my inspiration
You've set this pen to motion
And now it's flowing
Back and forth to write your name

I'll swim across this ocean
Just to see you smile
I'll swim across this sea
Just to stay for a while
I'll swim across this danger
Just to kiss your lips
I'll swim across
Just to see you

I'll swim across to see you
(Hold on hold on I'm coming I'm coming)
I'll swim across to see you
(Hold on hold I'll see you soon)
