Swallowed In The Sea

You cut me down a tree 
And brought it back to me 
And that's what made me see 
Where I was going wrong
You put me on a shelf
And kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself
You can only blame me

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
And I could write it down 
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
Or swallowed in the sea

You put me on a line and hung me out to dry
And darling that's when i decide to go see 
You cut me down to size
And opened up my eyes 
Made me realize
What I could not see

And I could write a book
The one they'll say that shook
The world and then it took
It took it back from me
And I could write it down 
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
And you'll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

Ooh ah
Ooh ah

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
The streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long 
Well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
Ah what good is it to live 
With nothing left to give?
Forget but not forgive
Not loving all you see
Ah the streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long
Well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea
You belong with me 
Not swallowed in the sea
Yeah you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea
