Thread Water Lyrics

by Sara Bareilles

Pardon me, my mistake
Thought it my turn for a break
But since the rain loves my face
I'll just let it be.

Long since gave up on long walks
To make up for long talks
Lately the silence wont stop
Talking at me

CHORUS
And Im getting weary waiting for the harbor lights to change
I've forgotten what I do it for but I tread water just the same
I tread water
I tread water

Thought I earned my fair share
Heard the devil may care
But I called him up, he's not there.
What does that mean?

CHORUS
Coz I'm getting weary waiting for the harbor lights to change
I've forgotten what I do it for but I tread water just the same
I tread water
I tread water

Thought that life would lead
Far from Beauty's Beast
Well, I know at least
You can't count me out
Coz I'm used to the water now.

CHORUS
And I'm getting weary waiting for the harbor lights to change
I've forgotten what I do it for but I tread water just the same
Never let this pair of hands forget to pull their weight
This burden may be more than I would like to bear but still its less than I can take
I tread water
I tread water
