Chorus:

love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
then it pulls you in
then it takes you, takes you
over, over
love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
first you're floating high
then takes you takes you
under under

well it's cold
cold under water
in the night time
but i dove
dove to the bottom
to see what i'd find

that's when i saw a light
a glowing paradise
thought i'd stay a while
it's been calling me underwater, child
everything that i ever dreamed

taking my breath away
currents got hold of me
sweeping me away
wish that i could stay
takes me to the top
it's the cycle that never stops

love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
then it pulls you in
then it takes you, takes you
over, over
love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
first you're floating high
then takes you takes you
under under

(takes you takes you over)
(takes you takes you under)
(takes you takes you over)
over!
(takes you takes you under)

say:

i've been told
told you only find it once in a lifetime
so you better hold
hold on stronger then ever
like it's the last time

So when you see the light
like a ship in the night
you have found the place
you been looking for
like a distant shore
don't you ever look back again

here's something you should know (know)
the sea is still in control (spoken: that's right)
cherish everyday
cause you never know
it can take away
the very thing that you love the most(love the most)

love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
then it pulls you in
then it takes you, takes you (takes you, takes you over)
over, over
love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees (leaves you on your knees)
first you're floating high
then takes you takes you (takes you, takes you under)
under under

(takes you takes you over) oh
(takes you takes you under)
(takes you takes you over)so far
(takes you takes you under)Listen, love is like the sea yeah

(takes you takes you over)
(takes you takes you under)can you feel the pull?
(takes you takes you over)it's calling you
(takes you takes you under)

love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
then it pulls you in
(if you ever felt this way before)
then it takes you, takes you
over, (then you know)
over
love is like the sea
leaves you on your knees
first you're floating high
(oh get down on your knees)
then it takes you takes you
under under
(take me away)
