Lyrics

I don't know if I can swim today

I could barely float yesterday

You yank my line almost every single time

And I don't know if I can swim today

 

The waves crashed into me, I was safe in the sun

Now my feet can't touch the bottom and I've come undone

The pulling of tides, the reaching for shore

The haven where hearts mend tumbles to sea once more

 

And things fall all around, sand slips through my hands

In the pulling of tides do I swim or do I stand?

 

I don't know if I can swim today

I could barely float yesterday

You yank my line almost every single time

And I don't know if I can swim today

 

It's this place between and before you and not you at all,

But the losing and finding myself in love's call

The pulling of tides now I float quiet in blue

Sky stretches above me, soon shore will come into view

 

And things fall all around, love slips through my hands

In the pulling of tides, do I swim or do I stand?

 

I don't know if I can swim today

I could barely float yesterday

You yank my line almost every single time

And I don't know if I can swim today

I don't know if I can swim today

I don't know if I can swim
