You took your time.
You took what you needed.
You placed your hands upon my eyes.
You took what was needed.

You used to laugh about my pride
And you dance with echoes in my mind.
And I have been holding tight
To driftwood on a waiting shore.

So I'll hold you underwater,
Breathe with me if you can;
Slowly fading with the sunlight
Your face is turning blank.

And the schoolgirls dream of olden towns,
Lemon lips and sunset walks,
But I'll hold you underwater
While I can. (While I can.)

Your words don't come out
Clear this time,
As you place your lips
Close to me, dear.

I won't cry for my sins.
I won't cry for her.
I won't cry.

Oh, don't you wonder
How I'm coping with your smoky ways?
'Cause I can still remember

Your face when you walked into the room,
The smell of your hair and your cheap perfume,
Your skin pressed against my arm and thigh,
The way you turned and sang into my ear.
Oh my dear, you're dying.

So I'll hold you underwater,
Breathe with me if you can;
Slowly fading with the sunlight
Your face is turning blank.

And the schoolgirls dream of olden towns,
Lemon lips and sunset walks,
But I'll hold you underwater
While I can. (While I can.)

While I can. (While I can.)
