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,
And 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,


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,

The currents will pull us,
Away from our love,
Just keep your head above,
