Drown in Blue

lyrics

I’m on the move
I’m on the move
I can’t stop
cause if I do
It’s gonna get me
It’s gonna get me

gotta keep moving
all the time
gotta keep busy
or I’ll lose my mind
walk fast talk fast work fast think fast
see --- nothin’ slow ‘bout me

I’m a speed demon
I gotta be
cause if I ain’t
the party’s over
the party’s over

it’s not that my life is so bad, it’s pretty good actually
it’s just that the world can be rotten
and I don’t wanna Drown in Blue
don't wanna Drown in Blue

I’m on the move
I’m on the move
I can’t stop
cause if I do
It’s gonna get me
It’s gonna get me
It’s gonna get me
It’s gonna get me

one time I did it
I slowed down
and sure enough
it got me
just when I was feeling really good
and clean and comfy
like when your mama take you out of your bath
and wrap you up in one of them towels with the hoods
and pours baby powder all over you
mmmmmmmmmm
I was feeling fine

and just then it grabbed me by the throat
so hard I couldn’t breathe
so hard I could feel my chest burst
and the next thing I knew
my heart was racing
and I couldn’t stop it
and my usual optimistic self
was seeing the whole world in blue

Afraid it’s coming down on me
And my turn is comin’ next
keep me a prisoner forever
And forever seems so long in blue
don’t wanna drown in blue
Drown in Blue
Don’t wanna Drown in blue
