Deciding Tonight – The Sailor lyrics

A sailor at sea for years
With weathered skin, an untamed beard
Somewhere hidden within he had a secret, he couldn't swim
Suddenly pulled overboard 50 yards from shore
A belt of lead around his waist pulled him to the floor
This sailor he won't flail his chest is filled with pride
In this life I can't swim, but soon I'm gonna fly

I'd rather drown tonight than let them know that I can't swim
That's what he said as he sunk to the bottom

Now his secret is safe at the bottom of the sea
Buried just like treasure that's where it will be
It's a treasure no man wants or ever will seek
His secret is safe with me

I'd rather drown tonight than let them know that I can't swim
That's what he said as he sunk to the bottom

I'd rather drown tonight (I'd rather drown tonight)
Than let them know that I can't swim (I'd rather drown tonight)
That's what he said (I'd rather drown tonight)
As he sunk to the bottom

Rather drown tonight than let them know that I can't swim
That's what he said as he sunk to the bottom
