  • Riptide, it's a riptide
    Riptide, it's a riptide

    Finally frozen
    No more emotion
    Started escaping now everything's numb
    Dove in the deep end
    Stuck and I can't swim
    So out of breath I know I don't have long

    Yeah this is way too much, just give me the rush
    Yeah this is way too much, just give me the rush

    I'm done explaining my pain
    This is way too much
    I wanna feel euphoria
    Give me the rush
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide that's trying to drown me
    Full of excuses for way too long
    Don't wanna sing another hopeless song
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide
    It's a riptide

    Riptide, it's a riptide
    Riptide, it's a riptide

    I'm so ashamed of
    My vicious problems
    Keeping the worst of me all to myself
    It's overwhelming
    Not ever telling
    The ones I love that I gotta find help

    Yeah this is way too much, just give me the rush
    Yeah this is way too much

    I'm done explaining my pain
    This is way too much
    I wanna feel euphoria
    Give me the rush
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide that's trying to drown me
    Full of excuses for way too long
    Don't wanna sing another hopeless song
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide
    It's a riptide

    Don't wanna die
    I guess I gotta let it go
    Don't wanna die
    I guess I gotta let it go

    I'm done explaining my pain
    This is way too much
    I wanna feel euphoria
    Give me the rush
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide, yeah
    I'm done explaining my pain
    This is way too much
    I wanna feel euphoria
    Give me the rush
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide that's trying to drown me
    Full of excuses for way too long
    Don't wanna sing another hopeless song
    Cause it's the last time that I romanticize
    The riptide
    It's a riptide

    Riptide, it's a riptide
    Riptide, it's a riptide
