Darren Hayes - Taken By The Sea Lyrics




love, lay me down
slay me with whispers
reassure me that it’s alright
I, I hit the deck, I hit rock bottom
but you saw me, then you caught me
shining like a ray of hope
swift like a turning sea
angel to comfort me
cradling my head in your hands
I looked up at the sun
and the fog cleared, I saw you

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

fall, I took a fall
I took it easy
on the surface I was perfect
but down, way down below
I started believing
I deserved it
was I worthless
sinking like a rescue boat
washing right over me
vessel is struggling
waving both my hands in the air
then the blindness of love
then your arms all around me

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

and I want so much to believe
that I won’t disappear in the water
that I won’t always be swimming against the tide

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island and you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea, the sea
I am an island, you are the ocean
all of my sadness taken by the sea

    Lyrics:

    Love, lay me down
    Slay me with whispers
    Reassure me that it's alright
    I, I hit the deck, I hit rock bottom
    But you saw me, then you caught me
    Shining like a ray of hope
    Swift like a turning sea
    Angel to comfort me
    Cradling my head in your hands
    I looked up at the sun
    And the fog cleared, I saw you

    And I want you and that's so terrifying
    And I want you to help put out the fire
    Cause I am an island, you are the ocean
    And all of my sadness taken by the sea

    Fall, I took a fall
    I took it easy
    On the surface I was perfect
    But down, way down below
    I started believing
    I deserved it
    Was I worthless
    Sinking like a rescue boat
    Washing right over me
    Vessel is struggling
    Waving both my hands in the air
    Then the blindness of love
    Then your arms all around me

    And I want you and that's so terrifying
    And I want you to help put out the fire
    Cause I am an island, and you are an ocean
    And all of my sadness taken by the sea

    And I want so much to believe
    That I won't disappear in the water
    That I won't always be swimming against the tide

    And I want you, is that so terrifying
    And I want you to help put out the fire
    Cause I am an island and you are the ocean
    And all of my sadness taken by the sea, the sea
    I am an island, you are the ocean
    All of my sadness taken by the sea

    This song is for me and my twin flame Daniel hale :) we met in 2006 dated for a year and a half off and on then we went separate ways but always stayed in contact through Facebook and within the last two months we have reconnected more intimately by confessed our our love for each other realizing we were twin flames aka two souls that use to be one but were split into two and have been looking each other and within all that in only 2 months I moved in with him and got engaged!!!!! And this song is how I feel!
