lyrics

And if I put it out there
I know you'd take my heart away
But would you ask me to stay?
Or would you just fade away

The fish, they scatter
When the droplet hits the water
They're not scared by state of matter
But of the ripples that it brought here
From the tears I can't afford to shed
I've been living in my head

Now we're swimming upstream
Living in a rough dream
Would you run, would you believe me?
Or think I give it up too freely?
Now we're swimming upstream
Living in a rough dream
Joined by nothing but a feeling
When words have got me reeling

If I wrote it down now
Would you ask to erase your name?
Would you see it's still the same?
Just hung in a lovelier frame

The birds, they whisper
On a telephone wire
Cause when the breeze begins to blister
They can't fly any higher

Now we're swimming upstream
Living in a rough dream
Would you run, would you believe me?
Or think I give it up too freely?
Now we're swimming upstream
Living in a rough dream
Joined by nothing but a feeling
When words have got me reeling
