Taking In Water

  • I wish I was you;
    A piece of gold at the bottom of the blue
    Too heavy to swim,
    But too beautiful to lose
    Holding my breath
    Diving down to give you air
    I never knew
    The colors that surround you

    (Wake up wake up) Holding on forever to keep you
    (Wake up wake up) Keep you from slipping too deep
    (Wake up wake up) If you want to escape, you don't need to
    (Wake up wake up) Just look for me

    I'm taking in water for you, my love (Just look for me)
    Pulling you out, I'll take the blue (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water, my breath, I remember (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water for you (Just look for)

    You picked up the light
    The spectrum back to turn to white
    Too bright to be seen
    I wish that beautiful boy was me
    Never alone
    The sky's a different shade of grey
    Making you glow
    The colors dance around you

    (Wake up wake up) Holding on forever to keep you (Wake up wake up)
    Keep you from slipping too deep (Wake up wake up)
    If you want to escape, you don't need to (Wake up wake up)
    Just look for me

    I'm taking in water for you, my love (Just look for me)
    Pulling you out, I'll take the blue (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water, my breath, I remember (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water for you (Just look for)

    Treasures are lost on the bed
    And you buried down in your soul
    Buried down in your soul

    (Wake up wake up) Holding on forever to keep you (Wake up wake up)
    Keep you from slipping too deep (Wake up wake up)
    If you want to escape, you don't need to (Wake up wake up)
    (Wake up wake up) Just look for me

    I'm taking in water for you, my love (Just look for me)
    Pulling you out, I'll take the blue (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water, my breath, I remember (Just look for me)
    I'm taking water for you (Just look for)

    (Just look for me)
    (Just look for me)
    (Just look for me)
