A sudden gust of gravity
I stop wailing and kicking just to let this water cover me
Cover me
Only if I rest my arms, rest my mind you'll overcome me
And swell up around me
With my fighting so vain, with my vanity so fought
I'm rolling over
Cause in just the same way the stream becomes swollen up
Swollen with cold up over the ground
When my heart draws close to the close of autumn
Your love (your love) abounds

All this time I've been thinking, wondering how would it be
To breathe in deep
Guess I need to be careful when I ask for a drink
Just might get what I ask for
And I know just what you'd say to me
That's why I don't ask you
What would I ask you
I'm like a bull-headed boy these days crying my toy is gone
You're shiny and new
Cause in just the same way the stream becomes swollen up
Swollen with cold up over the ground
When my heart draws close to the close of autumn
Your love (your love) abounds

Guess I'll drop my anger here before I float away
And the chains around me
An awful lot of talking, I don't leave you much to say
You didn't ever leave me
And my greatest fear was you'd leave me here
A long time back my feet could touch the bottom
