You 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 fire at me from a gun

Cracking me up again

I swim for brighter days

Despite the absence of sun

Choking on salt water

I'm not giving in

You gotta swim

You gotta swim

For nights that won’t end

Swim for your families

Your lovers, your sisters and brothers and friends

Yeah, you gotta swim

For 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 up again

I swim for brighter days

Despite the absence of sun

Choking on salt water

I'm not giving in

I'm not giving in

Swim

You gotta swim

Swim in the dark

There's an ocean to drift in

Feel the tide shifting away from this spark

Yeah you gotta swim

Don't let yourself sink

Just follow the horizon

I promise you it's not as far as you think

And 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

Just keep your head above

Swim

I love this song, it is just so uplifting when feeling down. The lyrics are easy to relate to whatever your going through. Its by Jack's Mannequin and the song title is Swim. (Not sure how perfect these lyrics are, not many sites have them and may not be completely correct but you can gather the message)

I like it! You should also listen to "Watch the Sky" by Something Corporate... Andrew McMahon's other band. Along the same lines. He says it's his favorite song he's written, which is strange because it's only found on import CD's.... but it's good :dance:

I like that song, it came on the cd i bought in the UK. The only decent thing about been here in the UK is that we sometimes get extra songs on albums :D

ohh yeah i wasn't paying attention to where you were from when i wrote that. you're lucky... half the time the songs i like best are the bonus tracks on the UK versions, or b side albums that we don't even sell in the the US. so wrong. i think i need to move :think:
