Deep Water Swim
David Gray Song Lyrics

Artist: David Gray
Album: Skellig (2021)


With the weight of the skies
Like a word to the wise
And the thought that preyed.

With the road rising up
And the fog in my cup
As we cut to fade.

Go from ten down to nought
All the things that we bought
All the plans we made.

Oh man will you stop
Talking, offering it up
So sweetly
It just ain't yours to give
Less you own it completely.

Feel it sharp in my breast
Coming over the crest
Like the joys of spring.

Sense the one with no name
Moving just out of frame
On a gauzy wing.

Like a smile as it cracked
Or a face in the act
Of remembering.

Oh man will you stop
Talking, offering it up
So sweetly
It just ain't yours to give
Less you own it completely.

I wouldn't know
I wouldn't.

Hold the truth like a stone
Of the tree that was grown
From a tiny stem.

As the note finds its mark
Swallowed up by the arc
Of a darkened limb.

It ain't nobody's fault
That it's sere and it's salt
Deep water swim.

Oh man will you stop
Talking, offering it up
So sweetly
It just ain't yours to give
Less you own it completely.

I wouldn't know
I wouldn't.

I wouldn't know
I wouldn't.
