If I was not myself
And you were someone else
I'd say so much to you
And I would tell the truth
It's high, can't hardly breathe

When your hands let go of me
The eyes say standing out
And I feel things from selves

I'm dead in the water
Still looking for ya
I'm dead in the water
Can't you see, can't you see

You've seen this all before
Life left on the shore
We're smiling all the same
You sail away again

I'm dead in the water
Still looking for ya
I'm dead in the water
Can't you see, can't you see

Oh yeah
I'm dead in the water
Still looking for ya
I'm dead in the water
Can't you see, can't you see

I'm dead in the water
Still looking for ya
I'm dead in the water
Can't you see, can't you see
