lyrics

The weight of this boat cannot carry us both,
so it's all right if you wanna go.
But you'll have to swim to shore, because I don't have an oar, and if I did I'm not quite sure I'd let you know.

One more thing before we part;
don't forget to take your heart, 'cause I don't want it any more.
Give me one last kiss before the row, and watch out for the under tow. The current'll grab you and hold you down below.

Swim for shore. If you stay here, you're only gonna drown.
Swim for shore. 'Cause I am only weighing us down.

One thing I am guilty of is being far too young for love,
and letting love become who I was.
These days I have different ways. I have grown and I have changed. I'd go back, but it's too late.

Swim for shore. If you stay here, we're only gonna drown.
Swim for shore. 'Cause I am only weighing us down.

If I've learned anything from this pain; it's that you and I are not the same. And it's about time I let you go, so swim for shore and be sure to let me know when you find what you're looking for. And if you do, I hope it's gone before you ever have the chance to let it go.

Swim for shore, if you stay here we're only gonna drown.
Swim for shore. 'Cause baby we are going down.
