Meet me here beneath the burning skies
Where the ocean comes and takes us from all of our lies
You never said that you were coming back
I have waited although I have found the place you hide
What keeps you so far away?

We can swim in silence
You can pull me under
I will not come up for anyone
I can slowly sink and
Watch you as you leave us
But I will drown until you care
I will drown until you care

I imagine what it must be like
To have everything you need and not be satisfied
Run the water until it burns
And you can't see through the waves that crash into your prey
What keeps you so far away?

We can swim in silence
You can pull me under
I will not come up for anyone
I can slowly sink and
Watch you as you leave
But I will drown until you care

Going under
Getting close to what we cannot recognize
Floating face down in the lies
Here we are without a trace
But the lies we used to blame
And you're so far away
What keeps you so far away?

We can swim in silence
You can pull me under
I will not come up for anyone
I can slowly sink and
Watch you as you leave
But I will drown until you care
I will drown until you care

    The song to me is about being under appreciated by your gf or bf. The relationship has been broken up for a long time but its still heartfelt and not understood what happened.
