Lyrics:

One breath away is where my lover lies
Alone in the bed that we make
He has the clearest and most open eyes
For someone who's never awake

A quiet anger lives behind his smile
A numbness to crowd out the doubt
An eerie calmness masquerades as peace
A silence he'll never let out

Don't let me drag you down when I abandon hope
For me it's always been sink or swim but you're content to float

As waves of panic hit my little boat
I too have been tempted to hide
But I would rather be at the bottom of the sea
Than never look over the side

Don't let me drag you down when I abandon hope
For me it's always been sink or swim but you're content to float

Can't watch your waking sleep another day
My brilliant, beautiful boy
Far too many sorrows have drifted my way
For me to lose my chance at joy

Don't let me drag you down when I abandon hope
For me it's always been sink or swim but you're content to float
Don't let me drag you down when I abandon hope
For me it's always been sink or swim but you're content to float
Don't let me drag you down when I abandon hope
For me it's always been sink or swim but you're content to float
