[Verse 1]
G                 C                 G
I was on the water when it began to heave
G          Em        C         D
And at the fight my words were strong
G                    Em                 C             G
But I would not have imagined that they’d stop making patterns 
G                   Em                 D             G
It’s caps of white, raised and broke I fasten to the boat

[Verse 2]
G                      C                  G
The panic overtook me and the fear I held within
G        Em            C               D
I drew a breath and I tried to find the courage
G                    Em            C                  G
To stand the troubled trip. What have I gotten myself into? 
G           Em          D        G
I silently wondered, I silently asked

[Verse 3]
G               Em         C             G
I thought of my family and thought of my love
G              Em          C             D
I thought of my maker and what might be above 
G                    Em         C              G
And the cabin in the woods that I have not yet built
G          Em                 D            G 
Many other things that I hold dear in this world

[Verse 4]
G             Em               C                G
I rode through the turmoil and rode through the strife 
G             Em               C       D
I held to my words and I clumped to my life
G                Em     C        G
And then when my vision began to blur
G              Em          D                G
This is what I saw and the thought that had occurred

[Verse 5]
G           Em            C           G
I saw every fish swimming fast beside me 
G         Em             C                  D
And all kinds of leafs from all different trees 
G            Em             C             G
And all of the insects that circle on the earth 
G            Em             D             G
Birds and land animals are reaching towards birth

[Verse 6]
G            Em        C       G
And I saw my body on a body of water
G          Em          G        D
And I could see that we were the same 
G           Em       C          G
Roaring and reckless, invulnerable 
G           Em           D               G
Emotion and swinging and predisposed to changing

[Verse 7]
G           Em      C      G
When I open my eyes vision respell
G            Em         C            D
I picked up my oars and I kissed the coldness
G            Em       C      G
With stronger arms I silently swept
G            Em       D      G
I silently drifted, I silently wept
