Mojave Rain

Under Water

I say you've had enough of livin' the life
We see the light and you turn off
Your solid step is losin' stride
We watch you swaggerin' on

Well could you be any worse than me
Gotta try to fiz the leak
Here's a rope
Hang it up boy
Reel it in

And you can hear it from the other side
You'll know it's comin' down the ranks
Once a silhouette now you're walking that plank

I said you don't have to keep me under water
You don't have to keep me under water

One day you moved away
Said you’d be by the city
I heard you found another way
Said it made it too pretty

She hears the sounds off the sounds in the summertime
It’s not the same ones that she’s used to but it feels all right
You know the ones that you hear to make you come alive
Those are the times we pretend

No you don’t have to keep me under water
Yeah you don’t have to keep me under water

High time you choose your innocence
Next time I leave with nothing left (oh nothing left)

And you could hear it from the other side
You’ll know it’s comin’ down the ranks
Once a silhouette now you’re walking that plank
Sayin’ who’s that hanging on your side
Take that kiss outside

You don’t have to keep me under water
I said you don’t have to keep me under water

You you don’t have to keep me under water
I said you don’t have to keep me under water

You’ll always be a true believer

I said you don’t have to keep me (I said you don’t)
You’ll always be a true believer

You wanna keep in the shadows
Yeah you keep in the shadows
You keep in the shadows
You keep in the dark
