I went to the water's edge
Forgot I couldn't swim
I went to the water's edge
All ready to jump in

I saw the water shimmer
I heard the wind howl
I saw my own reflection
I just can't see it now

You say it's the way of the world
To somehow co-exist
That eventually life unfurls
A path to happiness

So I whisper your little secret
And repeat it under my breath
I'll save it for you in my heart
In case we both forget

Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I am gripped by a loneliness
Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I'd be released in your tenderness
I'd be released in your tenderness

I went to the water's edge
And saw my life eclipse
I went to the water's edge
And then felt myself slip

I dreamed that I was floating
Just coast until I grew fins
I want to catch this tide back home
And feel you again

Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I am gripped by a loneliness
Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I'd be released in your tenderness

Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I am gripped by a loneliness
Oh, I wish you could wrap yourself around me
I'd be released in your tenderness
I'd be released in your tenderness
I'd be released in your tenderness
