Tahitian Moon Lyrics

My boat's capsized it's gonna sink to the bottom,
I can see the lights on the shore getting farther away.
I don't if I'll make home tonight;
but I know I can swim under the Tahitian Moon.

I came out here tonight to look for my friend,
I don't know if I'll ever get to see him again.
I don't know if I'll make home tonight,
but I know I can swim under the Tahitian Moon.
One last time, under the Tahitian Moon.

The sea's a very easy place to disappear,
to drift away, to fall asleep, or make your peace.

(I DID IT!)

I came out here tonight to look for my friend,
I don't know if I'll ever get to see him again.
I don't know if I'll make home tonight;
but I know I can swim under the Tahitian Moon.

"At Woodstock 1994, Perry specifically discussed the meaning of "Tahitian Moon." He explained that while he and a friend were vacationing in Tahiti, his friend had gone out to swim for a while. Perry said that it was getting dark so he went out to search for his friend. He stated that his boat sank while searching and he was forced to swim back to shore under the moonlight. He also said that, unbeknownst to him, his friend had come back from his swimming trip much earlier that day." GREAT SONG.

I had a tough time in high school in the late 90s and this song helped me a lot. I had no idea the meaning was literal. To me, this song captures the 2 sides of life. There's the hectic times when we find ourselves in tough situations and we panic, which is the verses of the song. Then there's the serene peaceful times that we can create if we just take a deep breath, relax, and realize that we can make it through (swim through) the situation, as the chorus perfectly captures. Great song.

This song always reminds me of the beginning of the book/short story "The Most Dangerous Game"

Which, served as a light inspiration for the movies "The Pest" and "Surviving The Game"
