Shallow End of a Deep River

So this is not what you wanted
It didn’t work out like you planned
Some things look different the closer you get
Some things I’ll never understand

You could have given me a warning
But you pushed me in and left me to drown
Let me lie here now in solitude
Try to figure out where it all went wrong

Chorus
There’s a shallow end in the deepest river
And I’m treading hard with my head held high
But the water’s so cold
And the trying gets old
And I’m feeling so tired

A lifetime to build a kingdom
So easy to tear it all down
I wrote down the things I believed in then
So funny to read it back now

Chorus
There’s a shallow end in the deepest river
And I’m treading hard with my head held high
But the water’s so cold
And the trying gets old
And I’m feeling so tired

Bridge
I could let the tide slowly take me away
Or I could fight my way back to shore
And start everything over
