Sometimes I'm okay
Sometimes you give way
And when I think of you
Will it go grey or blue
It comes in waves

So roll over me
I'll just sink down, I'll just sink down
To the bottom of the sea
I'll just be here, I'll just be here

I didn't belong
When I played you that song
And it rang off the walls
Through the steeple halls

So roll over me
I'll just sink down, I'll just sink down
To the bottom of the sea
I'll just be here, I'll just be here

The cannons have fired
They call my name
I know that I'll lose
And I'll go just the same

And I'll take all the blows
(The cannons have fired)
Cause they hit one by one
(They call me name)
Even if I'm afraid
(I know that I'll lose)
I'm not gonna run
(And I'll go just the same)

So roll over me
I'll just sink down, I'll just sink down
To the bottom of the sea
I'll just be here, I'll just be here

So roll over me
I'll just sink down, I'll just sink down
To the bottom of the sea
I'll just be here, I'll just be here

    My InterpretationI associate this with loving someone who doesn't love you back...

    For me, it's letting the depression wash over you, but telling that person that you'll always be there, waiting for them, always be their friend... even though it hurts.
