lyrics

THEY SAY
“THINGS'LL TURN YOUR WAY
SHUT YOUR EYES AND SAY A PRAYER
AND WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT
IT’LL COME TO YOU”
HERE IT COMES FOR YOU

THE YEARS CLICK BY
FEELING LIKE A DAY
YOU WEAR YOUR LIFE
DOWN LIKE A SHOE
YOU CAN TRADE IT FOR A NEW ONE
TIL IT COMES TO YOU

HERE IT COMES FOR YOU

BIBLE BLACK
SHEARING GLASS
NO IDEA IF I WAS MOVING AHEAD
OR TURNING BACK

NOT FOR A MOMENT
NOT FOR AN INSTANT
DID I ASK 
"IS IT TIME TO STOP?"

CHORUS

WHEN THE WAVE 
(WHEN THE WAVE)
PULLS ME UNDER
(WHEN IT PULLS ME UNDER)
I HOLD FAST TO MYSELF
KEEP ON THRASHING

HELLO! HELLO I’M IN THE DARK WATER
ALONE! ALONE IN THE DARK WATER

I’M IN THE DARK WATER
I’M IN THE DARK WATER


"SO YOU GOT A DREAM
WHAT GOOD’S IT GONNA DO?
CHUCK IT IN THE SEA,
THEY SAY
"PICTURES OR IT NEVER HAPPENED TO YOU"
TIL IT COMES FOR YOU
THE PEOPLE BUZZ AROUND
BLEED INTO A BLUR
NO REGARD FOR ANYTHING LIVING
LIKE THE EARTH’S AN APPLE
AND WHEN WE’RE THROUGH
WE CAN START ANEW

JUST UP AHEAD
TURN MY HEAD TO THE LEFT
SEE THE TAJ MAHAL
SINKING LIKE ATLANTIS

NOT FOR A MOMENT
NOT FOR AN INSTANT
DID I ASK
“COULD THIS BE REAL?”

CHORUS
WHEN THE WAVE
(WHEN THE WAVE)
PULLS ME UNDER
(WHEN IT PULLS ME UNDER)
I HOLD FAST TO MYSELF, KEEP ON THRASHING

HELLO? HELLO I’M IN THE DARK WATER
ALONE, ALONE IN THE DARK WATER!

I’M IN THE DARK WATER
I’M IN THE DARK WATER


HEMINGWAY FEELS  YEARS AGO
CAN’T THINK HOW FAR I’VE LEFT AHEAD
BONNIE I SHOULD KNOW BETTER, I KNOW


I, I, I, I, I, 


CHORUS
WHEN THE WAVE PULLS ME UNDER
I HOLD FAST TO MYSELF KEEP ON THRASHING
WHEN THE WORLD TAKES MORE THAN YOU OFFERED
HOLD FAST TO YOURSELF, REACH OUT, DON’T WAIT

FOR IT TO COME TO YOU
REACH OUT, DON’T WAIT

HERE IT COMES FOR YOU
HERE IT COMES FOR YOU
REACH OUT, DON’T WAIT

I’M IN THE DARK WATER
I’M IN THE DARK WATER
