Come join me within the belly of a big blue sea
Set a sail, catch a breeze, come on
Don't forget to fill your suitcase
Now watch it sink
'Cause where we're going we don't need a thing
Not a map or receipt
'Cause where we've been is who we used to be
We started wrapping our regrets in cloth
Are you defined by all the things you want?
Or did you get caught in all the things that we are not?

You were born to believe you can't get lost
So when you run you always get too far
Now there's nothing you haven't seen
But where we're headed we have never been
Past the pavement that we used to walk
Past the people that we used to know
Come on, go
Past the people that have broke our hearts
We started laughing at them from afar
But now we climb too high without a rope
Come on, go

No we're not swans
Nor are we as ugly as we think we are
We don't care for compliments but please don't stop
No, come on, come
We're not swans
We fit into each other, we are Russian dolls
Where somewhere in the center sits a beating heart
But come on, come one
We're not swans

Now do you fear we've gone too far?
Or do you feel we're reached the top?
Or do you feel like letting go?
Oh come on, hold on

We're not swans
Nor are we as ugly as we think are
We are falling fast but we aren't falling far
But come on, come on
We're not swans
Our fathers gave us features that we didn't want
Our mothers claim those features made them fall in love
But come on, come on

We are swans
We are flying higher than our counterparts
We have got each other, I'd say that's enough
So come on, come on, come on
