Florence + the Machine - Swimming

Your songs remind me of swimming,
Which I forgot when I started to sink
Drank further away from the shore,
And deeper into the drink

Sat on the bottom of the ocean,
A stern and stubborn rock
Cos your songs remind me of swimming,
But somehow I forgot

I was sinking, now I'm sunk,
And I was drinking, now I'm drunk
I was sinking, now I'm sunk,
And I was drinking, now I'm drunk

I tried to remember the chorus,
I can't remember the verse
Cos that song that sent me swimming,
Is now the life jacket that burst

Rotting like a wreck on the ocean floor
Sinking like a siren that can't swim no more
Coz your songs remind me of swimming,
But I can't swim any more


Then all of a sudden, I heard a note
It started in my chest and ended in my throat
Then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming

Pull me out the water, cold and blue
I open my eyes and I see that it's you,
So I dive straight back in the ocean

Take a deep breath, tuck the water in my chest
Cross my fingers and hope for the best ,Oh
take a deep breath, tuck the water in my chest
Cross my fingers and hope for the best

Then all of a sudden, I heard a note
It started in my chest and ended in my throat
And then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming
And then I realised I was swimming
