Shallow water

Verse 1
'Words mean nothing to me, just come out of your head;
Let yourself go, it's what you do and not what you just said'.
So I gave her flowers, she threw them away -
'Just give yourself', is all she would say.
I took her for pizza, a smile sliced her face:
'The hunger I feel can't be fed by this place'.

We drove to the ocean, I dipped in my toes,
Hesitated again; she kissed me and then
Pushed me in, as she took off her clothes...

Chorus
If you want to drown
Don't torture yourself
In shallow water;
If it's love you've found
Be good to yourself;
Jump in the deepend -
Might be for the weekend
Might be for a lifetime -
Who knows what we might find...

Verse 2
Everything concrete melts to butter cream,
She is here, there and everywhere, I live in her dream.
Days pass too quickly, everything's throw-away:
'Live for the moment', is all she'll say.
Her eyes disarm me, still my words cut her heart:
'This hunger I feel...
The hunger I feel is the same as when we started'

'I'm here in the ocean, while you're dipping your toes -
What about commitment? Where's the honesty?
Give yourself to me: come on take off your clothes...'

Chorus
If you want to drown
Don't torture yourself
In shallow water;
If it's love you've found
Be good to yourself;
Jump in the deepend -
Might be for the weekend,
Might be for ever more,
Hold onto me, don't struggle free,
Let's see how deep the ocean goes...
