I stepped out my door to clear out my mind,
I walked to the shore and the waters looked kind
I slipped off my clothes, waded into the blue
And the next thing I know, I’m drowning

I’m drowning in you, and there’s no one around
I’m over my head and I’m going down
In an ocean so deep, what am I gonna do
Such a beautiful sleep, I’m drowning in you

Rock me beneath, under your waves
I can’t get free, I don’t wanna be saved
Swallow my soul, but whatever you do
Don’t let me go, ‘cause I’m drowning


I made up my mind, this could not be
I look in your eyes and I realize I’m lost at sea
