Lyrics

My boat’s capsized it’s gonna sink to the bottom
I can see the lights on the shore getting farther away
I don’t if I’ll make home tonight
But I know I can swim under the Tahitian moon

I came out here tonight to look for my friend
I don’t know if I’ll ever get to see him again
I don’t know if I’ll make home tonight
But I know I can swim under the Tahitian moon
One last time under the Tahitian moon

The sea is a very easy place to disappear
To drift away, to fall asleep, or make your peace (make your peace)

I came out here tonight to look for my friend
I dont know if I’ll ever get to see him again
I dont know if I’ll make home tonight
But I know I can swim under the Tahitian moon
I can swim under the Tahitian moon
I can swim under the Tahitian moon
I can swim under the Tahitian moon
I can swim…
