Swim is all about keeping on going, its a delicate and deep song swirling round with those thoughts that swim around your head when everything is quiet. It is inspired by people, lots of different people, all of us. Just keep on going - Swim.

Swim

Why do you need their validation

Like an addiction to the game

To crave attention

Asphyxiation

Straggling all the remains of life out

That trust as it withers will sink and die now

 

Some build walls and battlements 

To keep you at a safe distance

While missing out on the real things

That make a moment an instance 

After all it's safer if no one gets close

You can keep the facade up

If no one knows

 

We're all drowning here

Treading water

Until it all disappears

That feeling of being dragged under

A mixture of regret and Surrender 

Tell me can you feel it too

Tell me do you know what to do

 

Swim

 

Why do you need their affirmation 

You wanna hear good girl

Get a gold star to display and

Personal celebration

While your own skin turns inside out

As the walls you built come crumbling down

 

Some wear a mask

A persona of someone else’s

Taking what they need

Like a pick n mix on the shelf

But it's safer here to pretend

Until there's someone else to mend

 

We're all drowning here

Treading water

Until it all disappears

That feeling of being dragged under

A mixture of regret and Surrender 

Tell me can you feel it too

Tell me do you know what to do
