Let’s Go Swimming, lyrics by Tale Teller Club

Let's go Swimming


One day in May

The sadness came

I couldn’t take the pain 

The sea was cold

I felt so old

As faith had left, again


The heaviness of water

Sat upon my bones

As I sank into the darkness 

and said goodbye to home


Breathe! Breathe! they cried 

as the reaper drew my soul

And all around the creatures watched 

as my thickening blood ran cold


Was death the end I wondered?

As I touched the ocean floor

I saw a life before me 

and I knew I wanted more


So breathe I did, again, again 

and the salty sea filled fast

My body fought for the air I knew 

and I was sure to breathe my last


Angels of hell and water babes 

inhabited the blue

Come they said let’s take a ride

for we have chosen you



And so it passed, my body changed 

I'm a warrior of the deep 

Filled with hope and glory,

my best new life to keep


We lead the babes to mothers 

thrown from  the ships of slaves

Who seek their babies in weeds

Whose tears become the waves


The suicides and fated

Who’s lives were taken fast

The souls who cry for longing

We give their hopes a chance


To seek a peace more certain

Than that they lost on land

Where God and kin forsake them

Where no one held their hand
