lyrics

Six Feet Under Water

I don’t know if I can hold it inside any longer
I don’t know if this feeling can get any stronger
It’s like the kind of a death
Where you’re right out of breath
I might never rise up again
When I'm six feet
Six feet
Six feet under water.

You know she’s cruel, uh huh
And I will never, never rise up again
You know she’s cruel, uh huh
And I will never, never rise up again

I’ve been told that I’d never be able to keep her
Tried to hold her but she only keeps pulling me deeper
It’s like my pride is a crown
And it’s dragging me down
I might never rise up again
When I'm six feet
Six feet
Six feet under water

You know she’s cruel, uh huh
I may never, never rise up again
You know she’s cruel, uh huh
I may never, never rise up again

In a note I told her meet me on down by the river
If she showed it was only to stand there and shiver
Because the chances are small
She heard me at all
I might never rise up again
When I'm six feet
Six feet
Six feet under water

You know she’s cruel, uh huh
And I may never, never rise up again
You know she’s cruel
And I wmay never, never rise up again
