Swim

This song has been on my mind a lot as I am facing the stresses that accompany one’s final semester of senior year. Enjoy the video; lyrics are below.

You gotta swim, Swim for your life
Swim for the music that saves you
When you’re not so sure you’ll survive

You gotta swim, swim when it hurts
The whole world is watching
You haven’t come this far to fall off the earth

The currents will pull you
Away from your love
Just keep your head above

Chorus
I found a tidal wave
Begging to tear down the dawn
Memories like bullets
They fired at me from a gun
Cracking the armor yeah
I swim for brighter days
Despite the absence of sun
Choking on salt water
I’m not giving in
Swim

You gotta swim
For nights that won’t end,
Swim for your families, your lovers your sisters,
And brothers and friends

Yeah, you gotta swim
For wars without cause
Swim for the lost politicians
Who don’t see their greed as a flaw

You gotta swim
Swim in the dark
There’s no shame in drifting
Feel the tide shifting and wait for the spark

Yeah you gotta swim
Don’t let yourself sink
Just find the horizon
I promise you it’s not as far as you think

The currents will drag us away from our love
Just keep your head above
Just keep your head above
Swim
Just keep your head above
Swim
Swim
Just keep your head above
Swim.
