[Intro]

G D G D G D

[Verse]

G                    D                  G                D
The currents want to pull you down. The bottom is empty, invisible.                               
G             D                 G        D
Where is the shore? Oh I can't see it anymore.
G           D      G            D
Feeling so tired. Have to keep floating.
G                 D         G               D
The bottom is so far away. The shore is so far away.
G                  D               G                 D
The finish line is out of sight. I won't give up without a fight.
Em                 D     D  
It's such a long swim.
G                    D                  G             D
The waves are coming at full force. And even though I thrash about
G                   D      Em            D
It only makes it worse. I only get more tired.
G              D           G                     D
Have I gotten out so far. I don't know where the boat docks are.
G                  D             G             D
And the moon just laughs at me. A sickle in a cotton veil.
G               D                      Em           D     D
Will I make it through this gale? It's such a long swim.

[Chorus]

G            D         G            D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
G            D             Em              D       D 
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.

[Verse]

G              D          G           D
I was standing on a pier. Was it very far from here?
G                D                G            D
Nothing but the water sounds. And if I had it in a glass
G                D               G                   D
I could drink it down and laugh. I would laugh and drink it down.
G                D               G                    D
The water is so pure tonight. It brings you life yet makes you drown.
Em                D       D     G             D
The fish must be laughing.   I have seen the boats of steel.
G              D             G            D
I have used a fishing reel. I am bobbing like a cork.
G              D           G                D
In this never-ending dark. I am soaked from toe to chin.
G                   D         G            D
I will not let the water in. Is there any use at all
G                     D            G                  D
To fight against this heavy tide? Will it take me in it's stride?
Em            D        D
It's such a long swim.

[Chorus]

G             D         G           D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
G             D         Em                D          D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.

[Verse]

G              D            G                   D
I was sitting in the sand. Waves were tumbling with the wind.
G                        D                   G                     D
They pulled him out. They pulled him in. The stretcher brought him back again.
G                   D             G              D
The sirens let the swimmers know not to wrestle undertows.
Em                  D     D 
It's such a long swim
G                    D             G                  D
And now there is no sign of land. The breakers are behind me now.
G                D            G              D
Splashing in a hopeless flow. Far above the muddy sand.
G              D             G           D
Will I dry off on the rocks? Will I ever see the docks?
G                      D              G             D
The beacons must have all burnt out. I am flooded with this doubt.
Em                 D    D
It's such a long swim.

[Chorus]

G             D         G            D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
G             D         Em           D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
G             D         G            D
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
G             D         Em                 D      D        D      G
It's such a long swim. It's such a long swim.
