My Own Sweet Life

In the shallows I will wade today

Deep waters drag me down

While the sun is out and the tide is out

I'd like to float around

Til the winds begin and my summer skin

Starts to peel away

Starts to peel away

I'll be slowing down to read the signs

I won't turn my back this time

On my own sweet life

Yeah this time I'm gonna live

My own sweet life

And I will watch the fisherman on this salty sea

When they leave 6 fish in hand

They might give one to me

If I stay like them, sit still and then

Wait here patiently

What else could come to me

But if I run for love, give myself up

A dust cloud's all I'll see, rising from my feet

I'll be slowing down to read the signs

I won't turn my back this time on my

on my own sweet life

yeah this time I'm gonna live

my own sweet life
