Lyrics

Outside Under

I slept in the rain again
resting my head on a dream
I dreamed I was swimming beneath the waves
as they tossed you around

You threw me overboard
afraid that the weight of me might drag you down
Afraid I might change your direction
or make you look bad in the end

Well, do you feel happy?
Do you feel safe when the waves crash in?
And how do you see me now - Outside and under …

I watched through the splintering light
holding my breath as I pondered my plight
Should I pretend I’m not angry at you
for shoving me off like that?

Then you dropped me a line from the top
a note in a bottle you tied to a rock
saying, “hello – hey, I love you –
I hope you find Jesus soon!”

Well, what about you, dear?
Do you feel safe when the waves crash in?
And how do you see me now - Outside and under …

Your note struck me funny, and I laughed out loud
at the thought of the lord, swimming down here with me
in the deep green silence, with the storm still raging above …

But just then, I noticed that all I could hear
was the sound of my own voice
Laughing out loud for the first time
And I knew that I was finally free – I’m free –

And what about you, dear?
Do you feel safe when the waves crash in?
And how do you see me now -
Outside and under
