Verse 1:

So soon we will learn to forget
Bad times the rules and regrets
One day they won't reach out for you

So you put out the fires you set
As smoke fades from your last cigarette
You're a mess but yes you're beautiful

Chorus:

Oh come on down we can't drown in this water
It's only gonna set us free
Come on down we can't drown in this water
You've been praying for a remedy

Verse 2:

Who really cares about fatal mistakes?
Trailer parks dreams don't carry much weight
In the long run you've got nothing to prove

So go run while you can still get away
Take a breath while it's still yours to take
You're a mess but yes you're beautiful

Chorus:

Oh come on down we can't drown in this water
It's only gonna set us free
Come on down we can't drown in this water
You've been praying for a remedy

Bridge:

You've been praying for a remedy
You've been praying for a remedy

So who really cares if you make a mistake

Chorus:

Oh come on down we can't drown in this water
It's only gonna set us free
Come on down we can't drown in this water
You've been praying for a remedy

Oh come on down we can't drown in this water
It's only gonna set us free
Come on down you know that you want it
You've been praying for a remedy

    We all make mistakes and sometimes the damage we do to ourselves or to others is great. If we linger on our troubles for too long it'll hold us down. We need to let go and forgive ourselves, wash ourselves clean and only then will we set ourselves free.
