There are men high up there fishing
Haven't seen quite enough of the world
Ooh, I ain't seen a sign of my hero
And I'm still diving down for pearls

Let me flow into the ocean
Let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free

I'm flowing under bridges
Then flying through the sky
I'm traveling down cold metal
Just a tear in a baby's eye

Let me flow into the ocean
Let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free
Set me free

G2           G2/F
I am not the actor

C6/E              G2/F
This can't be the scene

But I am in the water
                F6     F7
C6/E            Gsus4/F.
As far as I can see

    *trill the 5/6


Oh, I'm remembering distant memories
Recalling other names
Rippling over canyons
And boiling in the train

Let me flow into the ocean
Let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free
Set me free
Set me free
I wanna drown in cold water
