Lyrics:

She said, “Baby, it’s all in your head”
I said, “Honey, I wish I was dead”
She said, “Look, I’ve done nothing wrong”
I said, “You know it’s time to move on”

I can’t blame you too much 
You handle it all with ease
But I won’t be able to make it tomorrow
‘Cause I’ve found a new scene
And I can’t blame you too much
What they all have in common is me
But tomorrow, don’t go looking
‘Cause underwater, there’s a breeze

He said, “Buddy, I didn’t mean to offend”
I said, “Calm down, there are fences you can’t mend”
He said, “I don’t understand the way you are”
I said, “Don’t worry, I’m not going far”

I can’t blame you too much 
You handle it all with ease
But I won’t be able to make it tomorrow
‘Cause I’ve found a new scene
And I can’t blame you too much
What they all have in common is me
But tomorrow, don’t go looking
‘Cause underwater, there’s a breeze

And as those waves come
Crashing again
My mind is blank
Thinking of them
The times we cared
The lies we shared
But I can dream 
Of a sky so blue
For you

They said, “He was a good, loving man”
“But he changed, as we say, and so did his plans”
I say he was a maniac and a cheat
And as life got hard, that man lost his seat

I can’t blame them too much 
They handled it all with ease
But I won’t be able to make it tomorrow
‘Cause I’ve found a new scene
And I can’t blame them too much
What they all have in common is me
But tomorrow, I can finally be seen
‘Cause underwater, there’s a breeze
