  • Looking up from underneath
    Fractured moonlight on the sea
    Reflections still look the same to me
    As before I went under

    And it's peaceful in the deep
    'Cause either way you cannot breathe
    No need to pray, no need to speak
    Now I am under

    Oh, and it's breaking over me
    A thousand miles out to the sea bed
    Found the place to rest my head

    (Never let me go, never let me go
    Never let me go, never let me go)

    And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
    And all this devotion was rushing over me
    And the questions I have for a sinner like me
    But the arms of the ocean deliver me

    Though the pressure's hard to take
    It's the only way I can escape
    It seems a heavy choice to make
    But now I am under, oh

    And it's breaking over me
    A thousand miles down to the sea bed
    I found the place to rest my head

    (Never let me go, never let me go
    Never let me go, never let me go)

    And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
    (So cold and so sweet)
    And all this devotion was rushing out of me
    And the questions I have for a sinner like me
    But the arms of the ocean deliver me

    And it's over and I'm going under
    But I'm not giving up
    I'm just giving in

    Oh, slipping underneath
    So cold and so sweet

    In the arms of the ocean, so sweet and so cold
    And all this devotion, well, I never knew at all
    And the questions I have for a sinner released
    In the arms of the ocean deliver me

    (Never let me go, never let me go
    Never let me go, never let me go)

    Deliver me

    (Never let me go, never let me go
    Never let me go, never let me go)
    Never let me go, never let me go)

    Deliver me
    (Never let me go, never let me go)
    Never let me go, never let me go)

    Deliver me
    Never let me go, never let me go

    And it's over
    I'm going under
    But I'm not giving up
    I'm just giving in

    Ah, slipping underneath
    Wooh, so cold, but so sweet Writer/s: FLORENCE WELCH, PAUL EPWORTH, TOM HARPOON
