The Beths - "Knees Deep" Lyrics


The Beths - "Knees Deep" Lyrics

Watching light through water

I wanna bend the way it bends

You slice like a knife through the surface

But what a thrill to see it mend

With no scar, no memory

I'm envious

Why pretend I'm not

Wading in up to the ankles

The cold speaks straight to my bones

Whole body and soul hesitation

I am a coward turned to stone

I stay there for centuries

So all of history knows about it

But hey, hey

We made it to the longest day

And the sun, the wind, the earth

Are wearing me away

The shame

I wish I was brave enough to dive in

But I never had been and never will be

I'm coming in hot then freezing completely

The shame

I wish that I could say what I've been thinking

But I never have done and never will do

Still only knees deep

I'll never be brave like you

Lighten up like a candle

I'm as likely to go out

You can sigh from the bottom of your lungs

Until the house gets blown down

One step, then two, then three

'Til I've forgotten how to count them

But hey, hey

We made it to the longest day

And the river's ready current

Can carry me away

The shame

I wish that I was brave enough to dive in

But I never have been and never will be

I'm coming in hot then freezing completely

The shame

I wish that I could say what I've been thinking

But I never have done and never will do

Still only knees deep

I'll never be brave like you

The shame

I wish that I was brave enough to dive in

But I never have been and never will be

I'm coming in hot then freezing completely

The shame

I wish could say what I've been thinking

But I never have done and never will do

Still only knees deep

I'll never be brave like you
