You quit the band and got a job
Decided to take a wife then you stood still
And I went on and almost lost my life

No, I don't wanna be in your shoes
And I don't wanna read local news
And though I know, we had the same views
Who's the fool?

Try and keep your head above the waves
Try and tell yourself that you're safe
I know, you do your best to keep faith

So round and round we go, it's a shame
Oh, but you never know
There you go, praised again

Your head pressed against the glass
You always tried to put me down
But I knew that it couldn't last

'Cos I don't wanna be in your shoes
And I don't wanna read local news
And though I know, we had the same views
Who's the fool?

Try and keep your head above the waves
Try and tell yourself that you're safe
I know you do your best to keep faith

So try and keep your head above the waves
Oh, feels so good, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I knew it would
Oh, it just don't mean that much anymore, oh
