I fell overboard
Fell overboard
A hundred miles from shore
Or maybe more
I felt no hidden stores of courage
Or strength within my pores
Within my pores

The waves they threw me up
They threw me down
The world it let me go
And left me out
I could either sink
Or either drown
I swam with all I had
And strength I found

Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves
Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves
Should I let them fall
They'll be my grave
Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves

I cleaved the seas in two
The seas in two
Cold dark marble blue
My form cut through
Nothing inside my head
But reaching you
I held your picture there
And fast I flew

Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves
Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves
Should I let them fall
They'll be my grave
Back I beat the waves
I beat the waves
