lyrics

We’ve all got wolves we’d die to feed
It’s love and hate and never free
Underneath it's hard to breathe
We got the spirit of the sea

Words are ropes, words are stairs
"Tomorrow" takes us everywhere
I’ve smelled true hope in your hair
That sacred night is always there

You’ve gotta swim like you’re on fire
I know you’re hurt, I know you’re tired 
But you’ve gotta swim like you’re on fire

I watched you smile and pull away
I still feel just like a stray
Dusk is written night and day
But it’s alright right now we’re ok

You gotta swim like you’re on fire
I know you’re hurt, I know you’re tired
But you’ve gotta swim like you’re on fire
You’ve gotta swim like you’re on fire
You gotta swim like you’re on fire
