Swimming Lyrics

Florence + The Machine – Swimming Lyrics

[Chorus]
Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started to sink

[Verse 1]
Dragged further away from the shore
And deeper into the drink

Sat on the bottom of the ocean
A stern and stubborn rock

[Chorus]
Your songs remind me of swimming
But somehow I forgot

[Verse 2]
I was sinking, but now I'm sunk
I was drinking, and now I'm drunk

[Chorus]
Your songs remind me of swimming
But someohow I forgot

[Verse 3]
I tried to remember the chorus
I can't remember the verse
Because 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 any more

[Chorus]
Your songs remind me of swimming
But I can't swim anymore

[Verse 4]
Pull me out the water, cold and blue
I open my eyes and see that it's you
So I'll dive straight back in the ocean
Yes I'll dive straight back in the ocean

Take a deep breath, suck the water in my chest
Take a deep breath, suck 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 [X3]

[Bridge]
I was swimming
Yes, I was swimming
And now I'm swimming
Yes, I am swimming

[Chorus]
[x4]
Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started to sink
