Am I asleep? Is this a dream?
Oh my God, what have I done? Anything?
At 23, you walked out on me,
Oh my God, where have you gone anyway?

On the ocean, I think we're taking on water,
A storm is on the way, but I will hold on anyway,

Ten thousand leagues under the sea,
Oh my God, what have you done? Anything?
Twenty-nine years I've wandered around,
There's no beauty here, no emerald town
I shout aloud, what will be forgotten? Everything?

On the ocean, I think we're taking on water,
A storm is on the way, but I will hold on anyway,

I close my eyes and there's someone beside me hand in hand,
We can only speak in tongues, she's pulling me along,
Following down a trail of crumbs behind me,
My heads in her hands, everything it still feels wrong,
This isn't what I thought, so can I just go home?

Am I asleep? Is this a dream?
Oh my God, what have I done? Anything?
Ten thousand leagues under the sea,
Oh my God, what have you done? Anything?

    Lyric CorrectionIn the chorus, it sounds more like "but I won't hold on anyway." Anyone else hear that?
