about

'I Can't Swim' is about how music can help you overcome the difficulties of life. For me; bereavement, rejection and lack of stability.

'I tap when I play because I know,
If you give rhythm to the music then the rhythm helps you to cope'

lyrics

Drop the beat, tap your feet and smoke some weed,
Don't let your heart stings strum their own melody,
Let the rivers of your mind flow sweet like clementine,
Babe I'm fine.

I'll stay strong, life goes on.

Eh-i-oh give me some hope yes,
I can't swim but i'll dive in so that you're not alone,
I tap when I play because I know,
If you give rhythm to the music then the rhythm helps you to cope.

I sit on the back of this boat and feel the warmth of your presence,
Wash over this battered and stone cold sea,
I feel so safe as he clings on to to my essence,
the moon sparkles of the sea,
What a beautiful scene.

Drop the beat, tap your feet, you planted my seeds,
On a path that was touched by decete,
The fear is near, close enough to see,
This misty stream clouds everything I seek.

I'll stay strong, life goes on.

Eh-i-oh give me some hope yes,
I can't swim but i'll dive in so that you're not alone,
I tap when I play because I know,
If you give rhythm to the music then the rhythm helps you to cope.
