[E]I know what I [A]wanted
[E]I know what I [A]wanted
[E]I know how I [A]wanted this to [E]be[A]
Go down to the water
Jump down on the water
Walk above the water, leaving me
This is not my time, brother
It is cold in heaven
and I'm not sprouting wings.
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A] [E] [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A], [E]ye[A]ah
See those birds, you know the birds
They don't look to heaven
They don't need religion, they can see
They go down to the water
Drink out of the water
Fly above the water, leaving me
This is not my dream, sister
It is cold in heaven
And no one's coming after me
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A] [E] [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A], [E]ye[A]ah

You know I'm tired
Cold, alone and tired
Nothing's going to save me, oh I can see
I can't say I'm fearful
I can't say I'm not afraid
But I am not resisting, I can see
I don't need a heaven
I don't need religion
I am in the place where I should be
I am breathing water
I am breathing water
And everybody's got to breathe
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A] [E] [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]I'm [A]drown[E]ing [A] (Breathing ourselves)
[E]Me[A], [E]ye[A]ah
