Ocean Colour Scene – Waving Not Drowning lyrics

Take that face right off yours
It’s not yours, love, it’s not yours, love
You keep yours in a secret cup
It’s flowing over, it’s flowing over

And I gave all that I gave you
And I gave all that I dared
And I took it that I’d claim you
And I took it that you would care

But you love you more than I do
And I’d love you to be right
The waves may crash around you
And shipwreck you at night

I’m waving not drowning
There’s no one looking on
I’m waving not drowning
On the horizon

Raise an arm, we won the race
I’m in your slipstream, call it survival
You wrote the words for me on every wall
I thank the world for you, we’re alive, oh

We made it running empty
And we drove away our fears
And we drank the life glass empty
But nothing disappears

And we swam a changing ocean
Our friends upon the shore
And we threw so many over
And watched some others fall

I’m waving not drowning
There’s no one looking on
I’m waving not drowning
On the horizon

I’m waving not drowning
There’s no one looking on
I’m waving not drowning
On the horizon, on the horizon
On the horizon, on the horizon
