[repeat intro]

I'm flowing under bridges
Then flying through the sky
I'm traveling down cold metal
Just a tear in a baby's eye

Oh, let me flow into the ocean
Oh, let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free
Set me free

Gsus2       |Gsus2/F
I am not the actor

C6/E             |Gsus2/F
This can't be the scene

   |G          |Gsus2/F
But I am in the water

  |C6/E        |Gsus4/F   |     |
As far as I can see

[repeat intro]

Ooh, I'm remembering distant memories
Recalling other names
Rippling over canyons
And boiling in the train

Oh, let me flow into the ocean
Let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free
Set me free
Set me free
I wanna drown in cold water
