Love, lay me down
Slay me with whispers
Reassure me that it’s alright
I, I hit the deck, I hit rock bottom
But you saw me, then you caught me
Shining like a ray of hope
Swift like a turning sea
Angel to comfort me
Cradling my head in your hands
I looked up at the sun
And the fog cleared, I saw you 

And I want you and that’s so terrifying
And I want you to help put out the fire
Cause I am an island, you are the ocean
And all of my sadness taken by the sea

Fall, I took a fall
I took it easy
On the surface I was perfect
But down, way down below
I started believing
I deserved it
Was I worthless
Sinking like a rescue boat
Washing right over me
Vessel is struggling
Waving both my hands in the air
Then the blindness of love
Then your arms all around me

And I want you and that’s so terrifying
And I want you to help put out the fire
Cause I am an island, you are the ocean
And all of my sadness taken by the sea

And I want so much to believe
That I won’t disappear in the water
That I won’t always be swimming against the tide

And I want you and that’s so terrifying
And I want you to help put out the fire
Cause I am an island and you are the ocean
And all of my sadness taken by the sea, the sea
I am an island, you are the ocean
All of my sadness taken by the sea
