lyrics

Truth be told, I could handle much more than you have put on my plate.
I feel as long as you are breathing I could stand to bear all your weight.
Yes, I could swim oceans. I could swim oceans with just you on my back.
But here you are and you're determined to sink the ship, whichever you're on.
Here I am, put in the position to choose among the crowd or the one.
Yes, I could swim oceans. I could swim oceans with just you on my back.
We're not alone here, out on the sea. We're not alone here, out on the sea.
I know you think that we'll be safer if you bow out and under the waves.
If you go down, the ship goes with you. Think it now as you feel the sea spray.
I could swim oceans. I could swim oceans with just you on my back.
We're not alone here, out on the sea. We're not alone here, out on the sea.
You're looking off the plank like it's a small glass of whiskey.
But it's an angry sea and it will take you, and her, and me into the deep.
I see it now, I'm making you weaker by not letting you swim on your own.
Hold your head, dear, above the water. Reach for me when you feel alone.
You could swim oceans. You could swim oceans with just her on your back.
But you're not alone here, out on the sea.
You're not alone here, out on the sea.
You're not alone here, out on the sea.
You're not alone here, out on the sea.
