Swim Against the Current


So they say

There are other fishes in the sea

But the only one that’s missing

is the one that swims for me.

And so you say,

“Oh dear just wait patiently,

Love will come along, eventually.”

So I tried to swim against the current

To live my life and let me be

So don’t cast me a line

‘cause I’ve run out of time

To live a lie

I can’t deny

You’ve hooked me so deep again

With your smart and witty lines

You have soiled my disguise

and then the waves

oh the waves they come crashing down

when I see the look in your eyes

when you’re watching her walk by

“If you’re looking to fit in then join the rest

‘Cause you know you’ll only end up second best”

They said,

If you want to swim along the current,

then act and speak the way we do

You may be untrue

but if you’d rather be us

Then why be you.

What a beautiful lie, to live.

So I’ve learned to swim against the current

To live my life and now I’m free

Because honestly,

there’s no one else I’d rather be.

So watch me leave
