The ocean used to mean fear
Unknown things lurked in the dark
Grabbing at my legs
Waiting to pull me under
Beautiful but dangerous
Loved from afar
Too afraid to get to close
Afraid to be pulled under and consumed

Now when I look to the ocean I see your eyes
Bright and bold
With darkness lurking beneath still
But A darkness I understand
A darkness I want to explore
One that pulls me in closer
So I think I'm far enough away
Then all of a sudden I'm swallowed

Taken over
But I don't fight it
I let the darkness consume me
Take me over head to toe
Like it's where I was supposed to be all along
