Diving For Hearts Lyrics

by Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
Till then I wasn't alive,
I longed for you like the lovesick moon pulls the tide.
So I peeled off my skin,
I just slipped right in
And I become alive.

[Bridge 1:]
'Cause down here there's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just bright cold calm,
I feel no harm.
This underwater feeling's abandon and it fires my heart.

[Chorus:]
Was it emotion
Or should I just keep on diving,
Keep on diving down?
Under this ocean
I long to keep on diving,
Till my heart is found.
It's got a hold on me

Can't forget the things I've seen

[Verse 2:]
World will all end
And new worlds will begin
It's a thought so stark.
We're at once determinant,
Yet so insignificant,
Spinning out in the velvet dark.

[Bridge 2:]
Still, down here
There's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just this bright cold calm
Yeah, it leaves a scar
So show me how to find again,
If I'm lost, show me where you are
