Lyrics

I’m a captain lost at sea

In the deep heading straight to the bottom

Are you alone when you think of me?

Just take a deep breath

And watch me go down

 

And I’m a pilot falling free

About to crash land straight to the bottom

Are you alone when you think of me?

Just take a deep breath

And watch me go down

 

And I wanna be like you

And I wanna see like you

 

And I’m a bird with broken wings

Descending so fast straight to the bottom

Are you alone when you think of me?

Just take a deep breath

And watch me go down

 

And I’m a man with many dreams

I’ve seen them all fall straight to the bottom

I’m all alone inside you see

Just take a deep breath

And watch me go down

 

And watch me go down

 

And I wanna be like you

And I wanna see like you

And I wanna be

And I wanna see

And I wanna be like you

 

My paper wings never learn to fly

And I’m a fake cause I never tried

I fell asleep in a life of lies

With my conscience kicking in I could never get through to you

And I will swim through this mess I’ve made

Where I can pray for a tidal wave

So you can watch my body fade

Into the horizon the oceans have me now

 

And can you feel me dreaming of you?

And can you feel me dreaming of you?

 

Angel I won’t

Need to know

Or need to say

I want you

 

 

Opinion Daniël

The song is okay, but it’s a bit boring.

Opinion Justin

The start of the song and its first part sound great, until they stop singing. That’s the final part of the song, which could’ve been a bit shorter. Nevertheless it’s a good song especially considering it’s one of their first songs.

Opinion Timothy

At the start of the song it could go two different ways. It looked like it went the right one. The first part of the song is very good, but unfortunately the second part is a bit boring.
