I think that people come and fade away like waves crashing against the coastal boat
We have to throw ourselves into the blue and pray that we can keep our heads afloat

Because I've walked along beaches writing 'Save Our Souls' in the sand
And when the sea meets the horizon so far out only the shells will understand

You're running from the waves, you're running from the tide that’s changing everyday, so dive straight in
You're running out of time, the current's pulling at your mind, so dive straight in

I think that people never change, though it seems like they do like rocks along the beach
(Just hold my hand and take a dip in the water)

We're just slowly eroded by the tide, you'll find the strength is underneath
(Your heart is young but still your body gets older)

'Cos I spent too long as a young boy skimming stones 'til the sea begins to grow
(the ?are waiting by the rocks in the darkness)

but i found treasure there amongst them, i'm gonna take it all the way back home
(the first step you take will always be hardest)

You’re running from the waves, you’re running from the tide that’s changing every day, so dive straight in.
You’re running out of time, the currents pulling at your mind, so dive straight in

So ?stained your eyes, wipe em clean boy, keep treading water, or you’ll sink or never see that face again
It’s all lies, wipe ‘em clean boy, you’ll preach in danger but don’t you dare, no don’t you dare pretend

You’re running from the waves, you’re running from the tide that’s changing every day, so dive straight in.
You’re running out of time, the currents pulling at your mind, so dive straight in
