He dropped the bait
Into the ocean of the summer love
And now he waits
For the moment I've been dreaming of
A clean slate
On the heart of which he desecrates
It's too late for me now

I said I wanna roll over
But I gotta lean back
Give it some time
So that I can relax
I'm outta my mind
'Bout to have a relapse
Oh how I'm sinking in

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in

I lie awake
Watching every memory replay
Counting my mistakes
The clock is ticking, eating me away
For your own sake
Stop with giving and begin to take

I said I wanna roll over
But I gotta lean back
Give it some time
So that I can relax
I'm outta my mind
'Bout to have a relapse
Oh how I'm sinking in

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in

If only you could understand me
But you don't, you won't, I need you to
After all this time
I'll wait up now for you and I
Yeah

I said I wanna roll over
But I gotta lean back
Give it some time
So that I can relax
I'm outta my mind
'Bout to have a relapse
Oh how I'm sinking in

I said I wanna roll over
But I gotta lean back
Give it some time
So that I can relax
I'm outta my mind
'Bout to have a relapse
Oh how I'm sinking in

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
Oh how I'm sinking in

    The meaning of the song Sinkin in by cody simpson is about how a boy dated a girl and it went wrong and they broke up. Visualising talks about how the girl has moved on and all he can think about is how he ruined his chance and all the mistakes he made. The song is a list of reasons of why he regrets what happens and ants a clean slate. He just would like to start over and have a second chance in love. It can also be translated as the boy did make some mistakes, but he knows that him and her are better together than her and someone else. This song relates to songs like Want You Back by Chet Lloyd, Baby by Justin Bieber, and Still into You by Paramore. This song is on Cody Simpson's album Surfer's Paradise
