Swim Slow When You Come to Me – Final Version

Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
Ain’t no rush in the open sea
Swim slow when you come to me

You know that saying, “love is a sea”
Well I wholeheartedly agree, but you see
It’s meant for a sailboat, not a jet-ski
At that speed the ride is over so quickly
You don’t have time to enjoy any of the scenery

Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
Ain’t no rush in the open sea
Swim slow when you come to me

The world’s got a case of romantic psychosis
It starts off as Romeo and Juliet and turns into War of the Roses
It goes K-8, get a job, get a car, finish high school,
Hurry up, get to college, pick a career and find someone to say “I do”
Work, work, work, ditch the old friends and pop out a couple kids
Get a house somewhere way too close to where you’ve always lived
Get stressed, get fat, grow up, get old get paid 50K a year from a fat piece of shit
Wonder who you actually married and why you both decided to commit
And now in hindsight you clearly weren’t ready and all of the worries you had are now legit
I think it’s pretty clear why I think the two of us
should do the exact opposite

Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
Ain’t no rush in the open sea
Swim slow when you come to me

I might be excited but I’m not in a rush
I’m a little love drunk, but far from a lush
I’ve felt when it’s rough, I’ve seen when it’s clear
So let’s ease our way in and the let shore slowly disappear

Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
Ain’t no rush in the open sea
Swim slow when you come to me

I’ll give you love to the 10th degree
We’ll map each others soul’s topography
Find our way to the Holy Trinity
Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
Swim slow when you come to me
