I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I will swallow, I will, I will swallow

I'll tell the truth, all of my songs are pretty much the fucking same
I'm not a faerie but I need more than this life so I became
This creature representing more to you than just another girl
And if I had a chance to change my mind I wouldn't for the world

Twenty years sinking slowly
Can I trust you? But I don't want to

I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I will swallow, I will, I will swallow

I don't want to be a legend, oh well, that's a goddamn lie, I do
To say I do this for the people I admit is hardly true
You tell me everything's all right
As though it's something you've been through
You think this torment is romantic, well it's not except to you

Twenty years sinking slowly
Can I trust you? But I don't want to

I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I will swallow, I will, I will swallow

Low tide and high tea, the oysters are waiting for me
If I'm not there on time I'll send my emissary
If I Photoshop you out of every picture I could
Go quietly quiet but would that do any good

Will it hurt? No, it won't, then what am I so afraid of?
Filthy Victorians, they made me what I'm made of
The brighter the light the darker the shadow
I don't need a minder, I've made up my mind, go away

Twenty years sinking slowly
Can I trust you? But I don't want to

I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow if it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown

I'll take a deep, deep breath
I'll take a deep, I'll take a deep
