In my dream we’re standing by the water
But you never learned to swim; you spread yourself too thin
And somewhere there is balance in disorder
And it is struggling, and I’d rather sleep into suffering

“But Michael, there’s a place where pain’s forgotten
And it may be in this ocean, and I’m willing to try”

And I said, “you’re a victim to emotion”
With my feet stuck in the sand you give me no replies
You walk into the water
Just before you drown you say
“Nothing really matters, and everything dies anyway
So you owe me nothing
The only thing I ask you do is celebrate me,
And I will celebrate you”

And there are times to sing and times for silence
But I never get the change so I just sing beyond my range
But in my head your voice is still the highest
And it still resonates so much that I can’t concentrate
And harmony is often underspoken
So I let these notes ring open until my finger’s bare boned
Because somewhere in the melody I’m hoping
That though you cannot swim I won’t let you swim alone

So we’ll walk into the water
And just before you drown you say that nothing really matters
And everything dies anyway
So you owe me nothing,
And the only thing I ask you do is celebrate me
And I will celebrate you

So celebrate me and I will celebrate you
