    I think I am lost at sea, tossing to and fro
    Floating from one wave of love to the next
    The currents wearing down my resistance.
    Why can't I just bring myself back to shore?
    The pull of the tides are too mighty & strong
    Something just won't let me quite reach shore.
    There is more than just mere water out here...
    But noone knows what lies below love's depths?
    I see all kinds of thing glistening on the shore...
    Yet I can't find my way out of the water?
    I think that I'm just destined to be here
    When I fell overboard in love's waters
    Who knew I'd swim instead of sink
    Content in sweet love overboard
