You brought me up and out of the water
You brought me up to forget
I had ever been, I could ever breathe
In the water under your heart

I darkened your door and your days you said
You couldn't sleep the night
With the sound of the sea hard on my heels
Climbing the stairs to your bed

You promised me gloves from the skins of the fishes
The smile of the dolphin for a ring in my hands
But you left me with nothing but a mouthful of air
And promises wide as the ocean

You left me down for once and for all
You left me out in the open
Under mackerel skies, high and dry
And out of the reach of our sea

Way out of reach and out of my depth
I wear your love like a skin
That hurts when anyone touches me
Where you left me down
For once and for all
Way out of reach of our sea

You promised me gloves from the skins of the fishes
The smile of the dolphin for a ring in my hands
But you left me with nothing but a mouthful of air
And promises wide as the ocean

You brought me up and out of the water
You brought me up to forget
I had ever been, I could ever breathe
In the water under your heart
