lyrics

Everyone thinks I’m an early riser
but they don’t know I never sleep.
When it gets dark I swim to you
and I’ll come back before it’s light
I’ll fight, I’ll fight, I’ll fight.

Don’t let any nets fish me out of doing this
All day did I coast on the name I love the most
I’ll swim through the waves
lighting up the dark, your face
Any pain you will erase
My breath I’ll bate

Don’t let any nets fish me out of doing this
All night did I coast on the name I love the most
When I land
then I can call you mine
you’re mine, mine!

Waves wage war against each other
and I’m caught in between

Waves wage war against each other
and I can’t tell north from south

So keep your light on
My only guide, past dolphins, sharks, and whales

So leave your light on
It’s like a bell, I lasso my hopes to it and swim

Can someone win and someone lose
so the way is clear for me to get through to you?

Only a little further to go…

I was ready to say goodbye
until I spotted your light
Now that I’m here, let the storm rage on
I’m putting my foot down, my foot down

We’ll follow a flashlight up to a cave
We’re living lies, we misbehave
Our families would hate this
We’ll keep it a secret, a secret

Your voice is sweet and low
The loud ocean roars below
The heat wave doesn’t phase us
We’re sweating the big stuff, the big stuff

Well, I was ready to say goodbye
The bee buzzes deeper into the night
