taken by the sea lyrics – darren hayes

“taken by the sea”

love, lay me down
slay me with whispers
re*ssure me that it’s alright
i, i hit the deck, i hit rock bottom
but you saw me, then you caught me
shining like a ray of hope
swift like a turning sea
angel to comfort me
cradling my head in your hands
i looked up at the sun
and the fog cleared, i saw you

and i want you and that’s so terrifying
and i want you to help put out the fire
cause i am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

fall, i took a fall
i took it easy
on the surface i was perfect
but down, way down below
i started believing
i deserved it
was i worthless
sinking like a rescue boat
washing right over me
vessel is struggling
waving both my hands in the air
then the blindness of love
then your arms all around me

and i want you and that’s so terrifying
and i want you to help put out the fire
cause i am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

and i want so much to believe
that i won’t disappear in the water
that i won’t always be swimming against the tide

and i want you and that’s so terrifying
and i want you to help put out the fire
cause i am an island and you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea, the sea
i am an island, you are the ocean
all of my sadness taken by the sea
