Swim

Swim - Jack's Mannequin (song)

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

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 door

Memories like bullets

They fired at me from a gun

Cracking me open now

I swim to 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 family

Your lovers your sisters

Your brothers your friends

You gotta swim

For wars without cause

Swim for these lost politicians

Who don't see their greed is 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 door

Memories like bullets

They fired at me from a gun

Cracking me open now

I swim to brighter days

In spite of 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 war

Yeah you gotta swim

Don't let yourself sink

Just follow the horizon

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



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
