Shallow

I walk around everyday
With my head above the darkness
The storm below
I just can't face it
So I don't
You say I don't care at all
But if you only knew
At night all the sleep I lose
Over what I can't change
You don't understand that this world's too cold
And my skin's not thick
It's too thin
In an ocean that's as big as this
It's hard to stay afloat, not sink
I think I might just sink
So I need to think shallow thoughts
So that I don't fall too deep
In water I can't tame
'Cos that's the only way I know
How to stay breathing
And keep myself from feeling
Every single blow that comes my way
I just stay in the shallow
The world can be a scary place
And it can tear you up if you let it
So I had to learn to forget it the hard way
Oh, you don't understand that this world's too cold
And my skin's not thick
It's too thin
In an ocean that's as big as this
It's hard to stay afloat, not sink
I think I might just sink
So I need to think shallow thoughts
So that I don't fall too deep
In water I can't tame
'Cos that's the only way that I know
How to stay breathing
Every single blow that comes my way
I just stay in the shallow
Need to think shallow thoughts
So that I don't fall too deep
In water I can't tame
'Cos that's the only way I know
How to stay breathing
And keep myself from feeling
Every single blow that comes my way
I just stay in the shallow
Need to think shallow thoughts
So that I don't fall too deep
In water I can't tame
'Cos that's the only way I know
How to stay breathing
And keep myself from feeling
Every single blow that comes my way
So I need to think shallow thoughts
So that I don't fall too deep
In water I can't tame
'Cos that's the only way I know
How to stay breathing
And keep myself from feeling
Every single blow that comes my way
I just stay in the shallow
