Lyrics
I'M A DROWNIN' MAN
┬ęPat Flanakin

VERSE I was standin' in shallow water
Goin' down, down, down
With a firm grip on an anchor line
And there were faces in the water
Spinniin' round, round, round
When I thought I saw an old girlfriend of mine

CHORUS She reached out, and took me by the hand
It's my first time down
And I'm a drownin' man

VERSE She said I know that you still love me
Ain't that right, right, right
And you can't stop thinkin' 'bout me ev'ry day
And then she wrapped her arms around me
And squeezed me tight, tight, tight
She kissed me once and took my breath away

CHORUS I reached out, and she took me by the hand
It's my second time down
And I'm a drownin' man

VERSE Now all the faces out in the water
They start to laugh, laugh, laugh
As she pulled me down beneath the waterline
And as I fought her for my freedom
I start to gasp, gasp, gasp
Because I saw my life - it flashed before my eyes

CHORUS I reached out, and no one took me by the hand
It's my third time down
And I'm a drownin' man

BREAK

VERSE Now I'm tangled up in the torment
Of my past, past, past
And I'm tryin' hard to make it back to shore
But my heart is soaked in sorrow
And sinkin? fast, fast, fast
'Cause I know that she don't love me, not no more

CHORUS I reached out, and no one took me by the hand
It's my third time down
And I'm a drownin' man

(Repeat above chorus)

TAG It's my third time down
And I'm a drownin' man
