Giving in

IMG_1960

PRESS PLAY:

I’m letting the undertow take me.
I’ve been fighting it
with fear
for so long.
I’m going under.
But I’m not giving up.
I’m just giving in.

All that fighting never kept me from being pulled under anyway.

Now I can see that the undertow is predictable
and will only take me to the ocean
where my fears will either drown
or float away.

There is a voice inside 
reminding me to hear the rhythm
of everything.

The deeper I go
the quieter the waves become
when they break
over me.

Never Let Me Go, Florence + the Machine
Looking up from underneath
Fractured moonlight on the sea
Reflections still look the same to me
As before I went underAnd it’s peaceful in the deep
Cathedral where you cannot breathe
No need to pray, no need to speak
Now I am under all

And it’s breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

Though the pressure’s hard to take
It’s the only way I can escape
It seems a heavy choice to make
And now I am under all

And it’s breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

And it’s over
And I’m going under
But I’m not giving up
I’m just giving in

I’m slipping underneath
So cold and so sweet

And the arms of the ocean so sweet and so cold
And all this devotion I never knew at all
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner released
And the arms of the ocean delivered me
Never let me go

Deliver me

And it’s over

And I’m going under

But I’m not giving up

I’m just giving in

I’m slipping underneath

So cold and so sweet
