You know how people say they want to dive deep in love?
I used to tell them “careful what you wish for, love is a big ocean that looks like a bath tub”
I wasn’t actually speaking to them…
I was cautioning myself, because I can’t swim.
And everytime I put my feet in, I nearly kill myself. *You knew that the only way you could save me was by bringing the tsunami to my shell*

Whenever I looked into your eyes I could see that same ocean…
And of course, myself in it.
I can swear by the way you hold me, you don’t mind drowning…
…as long as I am that bath tub, the one with the yellow ducks floating on it. *Your love is a baptism of my existence, my rebirth*

I tell them make sure you look before you leap
Don’t let someone make you trip.
I wasn’t actually speaking to them…
I was cautioning myself, because I can’t fly either.
And everytime i spread my wings, someone plucks a feather. *Your love is a fire, fuelled by tears and comforting whispers*

If not that you gave the tsunami my address,
I would not have come out, or known you existed.
I would have stayed and drowned still…
but in my tears.
Thank you for your beautiful jargons. *You are my hurricane plated halcyon*

And Whenever I start running back towards my shell,
And you tell me don’t go back to the pain.
I can swear by the way you hold me, that I don’t mind diving…
As long as you are in the same tub, the one with the yellow ducks floating on it
