Deep Green
Marika Hackman Lyrics


Just because I love your skin
Doesn't mean I'll jump in
The water's clean and warm and green
I'm not allowed to swim
I'm scared of getting in

Batteries and Holy Ghosts
Buried in my bag of bones
She said they would help me to grow
Said feeding the stomach is feeding the soul

Spider web and harlequins
Wrapped around your sticky wings
It's pretty but it's hurting like hell
Cause I know that I'm unwell
My body's made of shell
And I know that you can tell

Beat me at my own damn game
Fucking with my goddamn brain
Now I will never win again
Better to love than to have and to hold

I heard that you like to swim
Doesn't mean I'm gonna jump in
But I'll put on my swimming set
Cause I know I'm going to get wet
I know I'm going to get wet
I know I'm going to get wet

The chorus to this song is plain magical - can't get it out of my head.

This was the first song I listen of her and I fall in love everytime I hear it.

Tomorrow We Live

I heard that you like to swim
Doesn't mean I'm gonna jump in

The way she sings that second line haunts me.
