YOUNG LUST; Happy Free Confused Lonely

love is this incredible thing. have you ever felt it? have you ever felt someone so close, you might just drift away into them? not understanding the consequences of whether they feel the same way? sometimes you just need to drift. drift into oblivion.



You’ve gotta swim Swim for your life Swim for the music That saves you When you’re not so sure you’ll survive You gotta swim And swim when it hurts The whole world is watching You haven’t come this far To fall off the earth The currents will pull you Away from your love Just keep your head above
I found a tidal wave Begging to tear down the dawn Memories like bullets They fired at me from a gun A crack in the armor I swim to brighter days Despite the absence of sun Choking on salt water I’m not giving in I swim
You gotta swim Through nights that won’t end Swim for your families Your lovers your sisters And brothers and friends Yeah you’ve gotta swim Through wars without cause Swim for the lost politicians Who don’t see their greed as a flaw
The currents will pull us Away from our love Just keep your head above
I found a tidal wave Begging to tear down the dawn Memories like bullets They fired at me from a gun Cracking me open now I swim for brighter days Despite the absence of sun Choking on salt water I’m not giving in Well I’m not giving in I swim
You gotta swim Swim in the dark There’s no shame in drifting Feel the tide shifting and wait for the spark Yeah you’ve gotta swim Don’t let yourself sink Just find the horizon I promise you it’s not as far as you think The currents will drag us away from our love Just keep your head above Just keep your head above Swim Just keep your head above Swim, swim Just keep your head above Swim
