At your bidding I fell fifty feet into salt water.
I scrambled to hold on or be lost forever.
You said it was for my own sake,
and watched as I was swallowed in the wake.
(Chorus)
I knew at once but still I'm so surprised.
You threw that stone and it skipped a million times.
How was I supposed to know I would end up in the undertow?

A weave of rope was hanging off the back of this freight liner
so I could catch myself and crawl up inside her.
I woke and I was alive
before I knew if I had survived.

Chorus

I'll learn to forgive mistakes
and be forgiven for the ones I've made.
I'll learn to forgive mistakes
and be forgiven for the ones I've made.

Chorus
