    You looked me in the eyes
    Last night
    You told me your secrets
    Then you asked me if I was drowning
    I said I was still afloat
    I can't drown in the deep waters of your life
    I feel like I'm starting at 2 feet
    Slowly working my way to the deeper end
    Nothing you say
    Can make me run away
    Nothing you can say
    That I haven't heard before
    Maybe the deep waters
    Are just too much for some
    But it's not for me
    There's something in me
    That prevents me from swimming the other way
    Deep down inside somewhere
    I guess I know
    That you're not perfect
    That there was a cloud hanging over you
    That you've been through the storm of life
    I know you're not perfect
    That's why I want you
    Because neither am I
