Verse 1

I've tried to wash away the nasty bitter taste

Of those hateful words from my lips

With a thousand kisses.

I've tried to stop the echoing of all the slaps

Of your nasty bitter words, I've made

A thousand wishes.

But they just don't work, damn.

The world's against us in this scam.

Chorus

And how long can you swim against the current?

There comes a time when all your energy is spent.

And you just let go and drown.

Baby, you and I are going down.

I know I can't breathe under water but

All the ropes are already set to be cut.

I just can't find a smile behind my frown.

Now I'll just let go and drown.

Verse 2

They say all you need is love, well, they're liars.

We can't possibly love each other

Any more than we do.

But then the rest of the world comes to the scene.

You're busy, you're tired, and I am

Left waiting for you.

Day after night after day.

Now I just have to walk away.

Chorus

Cause how long can you swim against the current?

There comes a time when all your energy is spent.

And you just let go and drown.

Baby, you and I are going down.

I know I can't breathe under water but

All the ropes are already set to be cut.

I just can't find a smile behind my frown.

Now I'll just let go and drown.

Bridge

Now before we drown,

Before we jump,

Let me just fight back the rising lump

At the back of my throat and

Reach for your hand

One last time.

Baby, we won't work, it won't get better.

All we can do now is jump together.

Chorus

And how long can you swim against the current?

There comes a time when all your energy is spent.

And you just let go and drown.

Baby, you and I are going down.

I know I can't breathe under water but

All the ropes are already set to be cut.

I just can't find a smile behind my frown.

Now I'll just let go and drown.

Outro

All I'll watch your face, memorize it in

My heart forever, while we drown.

Baby, you and I are going down.
