Standing
High above the soul
At the edge of
The diving pool

Smiling and waving
Before letting himself fall
The fact is fly

After wondering ...

It was beautiful to watch
So beautiful to watch

He was propably
The world's best diver
Probably
The world's best diver
He was
The world's
Best
Diver
Probably

Touching the bottom
He pushed away
With both legs

And ...

Like a fish

The fact is ...
As the water
He still was beautiful to watch
So beautiful to watch

I stay high above

He was
The world's
Best diver

But he could not swim

He was beautiful to watch
So beautiful to watch

    General CommentWhoever wrote this got the lyrics totally wrong! These are the right lyrics for this song:

    Standing high above us all
    At the edge of the diving board
    Smiling and waving
    Before letting himself off
    The faintest splash as the water engulfed him
    It was beautiful to watch
    So beautiful to watch

    He was probably the world's best diver
    Probably the world's best best diver
    He was the world's best diver probably

    Touching the bottom he pushed away with both legs
    And cut through the surface like a fish
    The faintest splash as the water released him
    It was beautiful to watch
    So beautiful to watch

    Best diver
    He was the world's best diver
    But he could not swim
    It was beautiful to watch
    So beautiful to watch


    To me, this song talks about an impulsive person, someone who make choices without thinking ahead and then realizing he cannot deal with the results of his deeds.
