Swimming In The Ocean Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I once was a dancer, I was young once like you
Though I know I don't look it
Jumped high as the sky
Had fire in my eyes and legs like a stallion

And I had a girl and I loved her
My best friend was her brother
We were on top of the mountain that summer
Thought we'd never be swallowed by the cracks

Fallen so far down like the rest of those clowns
Begging bus fare back, swallowed by the cracks
Our pride worn down, talking times gone by
Like everybody else swallowed by the cracks
We would never be swallowed by the cracks

We would talk through the night about
What we would do if we just could get started
I would choreograph, Eileen, she would act
While Steve was a writer

Then Stevie ran away and get bored
Eileen took a job in a store
Me, I became this drunken old whore
'Cause you see we'd be swallowed by the cracks

Fallen so far down like the rest of those clowns
Begging bus fare back, swallowed by the cracks
Our pride worn down, talking times gone by
Like everybody else, swallowed by the cracks
Swallowed by the cracks
You see we'd be swallowed by the cracks

Maybe it ain't over, I can see it's up to me
You only out when you stay out
You stay out when you don't believe
We could drive around in circles getting nowhere

All night long getting drunk with strangers
Telling lies and singing along with the jukebox baby
Swallowed by the cracks
