You've gotta swim
Swim for your life
Swim for the music that save you
When you're not so sure you'll survive
You've gotta swim
And swim when it hurts
The whole world is watching
You haven't come this far to fall of the earth

The currents will pull you
Away from your love
Just keep your head above

I found a title wave begging to tear down the dawn
Memories like bullets they fired at me from a gun
A crack ing the armor
I swim for brighter days
Despirte the absence of sun
Choking on saltwater
I'm not going in
I swim

You've gotta swim
Through nights that won't end
Swim for your families
Your lovers
Your sisters and brothers
And friends
You've gotta swim
Through wars withour cause
Swim for the lost politicians
Who don't see their greed as a flaw

The currents will pull us
Away from our love
Just keep your head above

I found a title wave begging to tear down the dawn
Memories like bullets they fired at me from a gun
A crack ing the armor
I swim for brighter days
Despirte the absence of sun
Choking on saltwater
I'm not going in
I swim

You've gotta swim
Swim in the dark
There's no shame in drifting
Feeel the tide shifting
And wait for the spark
You've gotta swim
Don't let yourself sink
Just find the horizon
I promise you it's not as far as you think

The currents will drag us
Away from our love
Just keep your head above

    (love this song x) I think (again with andrew fighting leukemia) it is about how you should stay resilient and keep trying no matter what life throws at you because even if your armor is beginning to crack (as the song says) on the outside, inside you can never be defeated and as long as you stay your self you won't ever be defeated and you can always power through! ~ mushroma.
