Jumped right into the ocean
Sank straight down, couldn't see the bottom

And we swam so hard, but the current pulled us under
And it swept us in to the fury of the tide
And we reached so far, but our arms were torn asunder
And our heads did spin - I clutched my neck as water flowed inside

Strove up for the surface
But we sank straight down towards the bottom

And we grabbed our hearts whose beating came like thunder
And we could not win, we were so resigned to die
And we swam apart, there I was left to wonder
If my lungs would give - I clutched my neck as water flowed inside

Separated, we two
I was washed on the shores
Of this quiet beach
Looked up at the night sky
Saw the faces of the stars
Kissing the surface with their reflections

And I walked down alone
Along the length of the sand
Bits of shells like teeth
Sinking in with each step
I walked down alone
Wandering there alone
Until my legs could no longer carry me
And this tremendous weight

Collapsed upon the sand
Heard the music of the waves
This shore will bury me
Hold me in its arms
Cradle me in its embrace

Descending, descending further
Until everything goes quiet
And the stars fade into nothing
I will see no more,
Save for the memory of your face
Replaying over in my mind
Here is my new home
This earthen tomb
Until I crawl for the surface and re-emerge anew

Now I've learned to love the tide
That stole our breath and swallowed us whole
