Swimming Home Lyrics

Way down
I've been way down
Underneath this skin
Waiting to hear my name again

I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
If I hear them calling
And nothing can hold me

Way down
(Do you really want me?)
All the way down
(Do you really want me?)
I will hear your voice
(Do you really want me?)
But I'll no longer understand

(No one's really loved me)
I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
But I hear them calling

I was looking to the sky
When I knew I'd be swimming home
And I cannot betray my kind
They are here - it's my time

I'm sorry
Nothing can hold me
(Do you really want me?)
I adore you still
But I hear them calling - (calling)
And nothing can hold me

Logically, she says she's going DOWN, so no it's not about heaven. xD She also says she swims to her destination, it sounds like a song about a damn mermaid.

It means as your slowly dying and you want your fairwells clear to everyone but you still adore them and love them as you go underneath their skin you feel more pain and sorrow and trying to go home..

This is one amazing song:To me it means loving someone so deeply but you can't be with that person because they belong to someone else,you have gotten under my skin.I will always love you!

This song is,me. It describes me all the way and I wanna cry everytime I listen to it and I can't just listen to it just once. I have just about all their songs and this is by far one of my favorites.

for me this song represents someone who's going home. someone who maybe did not realize the love around them and was only longing for one person, who died long ago.

I love this song... it makes me cry every time, because it reminds me of my baby I miscarried earlier this year.
