Where were you when I was lonesome
Locked away in this freezing cold
Someone flying, only stolen,
I can't tell, this night's so old,

I don't want to swim the ocean,
I don't want to fight the tide,
I don't want to swim forever,
When it's cold I'd like to die.

What was that, my sweet sweet nothing
I can't hear you through the fog
If I holler let me go
If I falter let me know

I don't want to swim the ocean,
I don't want to fight the tide,
I don't want to swim forever,
When it's cold I'd like to die.

I don't want to swim forever,
I don't want to fight the tide,
I don't want to swim the ocean,
When it's cold I'd like to die.

    General CommentWow, what a totally straight foward unabashed song about sex. It reminds me a lot of Lene Nystrom's "Play with me" in how it's not dirty and it's not sexual for shock value or anything, it's just an honest song about what he's feeling.
