I drift among the flotsam and the jetsam.
The last remaining scraps of other people's lives.
Cut off from the so-called civilised.
We drift along and on, the waves that bring me here.
I've travelled far from home, to meet the rising sun.
But it's not all I'd hoped, and now I only crave,
To see your face.

Shipwrecked in them cold, cold water.
Blood still flows but breathe gets shorter.
You can help me back to dry land.

Now our companions all are lost,
And there's no way of telling how it's going to end.
Each frozen hour has it's cost,
But every heated minute, more than makes amends.
And though you raise a smile, for people drifting by.
They sink beneath the waves, that knot upon the shore and,
Promise what you crave.

Shipwrecked in that cold, cold water.
Blood still flows but breathe gets shorter.
You can help me back to dry land.
Shipwrecked by your cruel enchantments.
Blinded by your loft apartments.
Taxis, high-streets, making ends meet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

I see a light,
Burning through the fog.
It's keeping my head above water.
I won't ever forget.

Am I alive?
How have I survived this far?
Keeping my head above water.
I won't settle for less.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
I'm not giving up yet.

All through the days,
And all through the nights.
Keeping my head above water.
