lyrics

I wanna live someone else’s life
Take their car, Drive their wife
Been running out of luck for too long

All these years swimming out to sea
Nobody comes to rescue me
Can’t believe I’m still holding on

I look round, we’re all the same,
Praying for lifeboats every day
Dreamers go down, dreams don’t float
They won’t save us now

Desperation’s in the air
Like virus spreading everywhere
Infecting the heart and the mind

It’s long way to the top
When the broken wood starts to rot
On the ladder you been trying climb

I look round, we’re all the same,
Praying for lifeboats every day
Dreamers go down, dreams don’t float
They won’t save us now
They won’t save us now

On the other side, at the bottom of the sea
There’s open grave of washed up dreams
Grandma’s Hands and her tambourine
Tapping out a rhythm that’s haunting me
Taking me back to when I was young
All the time in the world to become
The drifting man I am today
Let ocean take our dreams away
