Head Underwater

Album: The Voyager (2014)
  • I've been wearing all black
    Since the day it started
    When I stopped and looked back
    As my mind departed
    I've been losing sleep
    And I cannot sit still
    I'm not the same woman
    That you were used to

    I put my head underwater baby,
    I threw my clothes away in the trash
    I stood barefoot on the blazing concrete,
    I was waiting for the gut of the thunder
    I don't wanna bore you with how I feel,
    But when the walls came down,
    The shit got real
    I never thought I would ever be here,

    Looking out on my life
    As if there was no there
    I messed around with something I always hated
    I took a blanket into the bath
    Opened my eyes and hallucinated,
    I took a nap and woke up in the grass

    There's a little bit of magic,
    Everybody has it
    There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass

    My own mortality, I contemplated
    Down in the valley I got hypnotized
    It left a mark that hasn't faded
    That's when I realized

    There's a little bit of magic,
    Everybody has it
    There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass
    There's a little bit of magic,
    Everybody has it
    There's a little bit of fight left in the end
    I put my head underwater baby,
    I held my breath until it passed
    Crossed my fingers and concentrated
    I closed my eyes and I was free at last Writer/s: Jenny Lewis
