Swimming Lyrics

Your songs remind me of swimming
Which I forgot when I started to sink
Drank further away from the shore
And deeper into the drink

Sat on the bottom of the ocean,
A stern and stubborn rock
Cause your songs remind me of swimming,...

    I think that the song means that she was sad, depressed (sinking) but a new love in her life suddenly saves her, makes her remember how to swim... I love this song!!!

    it's him she only needs even if it hurts sometimes - makes her weak and strong at the same time.

    I really love this song, it's so catchy! I think this song's about life. How sometimes it can be great and you feel like you're swimming, but sometimes you feel like you're sinking.

    swimming means that the music rises you up and keeps you from sinking. Once you hear the note and feel the music you can swim and soar.

    To me it means she was so in love with someone she felt so good, like she was floating or swimming. Then they did something and it broke her heart so she 'sunk'. When she starts to swim again shes gotten over them.
