waving not drowning lyrics – ocean colour scene

take that face right off yours
it? s not yours, love, it? s not yours, love
you keep yours in a secret cup
it? s flowing over, it? s flowing over

and i gave all that i gave you
and i gave all that i dared
and i took it that i? d claim you
and i took it that you would care

but you love you more than i do
and i? d love you to be right
the waves may crash around you
and shipwreck you at night

i? m waving not drowning
there? s no one looking on
i? m waving not drowning
on the horizon

raise an arm, we won the race
i? m in your slipstream, call it survival
you wrote the words for me on every wall
i thank the world for you, we? re alive, oh

we made it running empty
and we drove away our fears
and we drank the life gl*ss empty
but nothing disappears

and we swam a changing ocean
our friends upon the sh*r*
and we threw so many over
and watched some others fall

i? m waving not drowning
there? s no one looking on
i? m waving not drowning
on the horizon

i? m waving not drowning
there? s no one looking on
i? m waving not drowning
on the horizon, on the horizon
on the horizon, on the horizon
