Oh The Water - JP Cooper

I heard a voice from somewhere echo echo echo echoing that evening
I tried to figure out where it was coming from but there was no revealing itself
I began to write it down was it he was calling out like he was needing?
And when I read it outloud I felt a shutter from inside how it was haunting me
It read I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water, oh the water
I tried to tell myself to let go let go let go of that feeling
Fighting the better side of myself sure was hard and he sure dug his heels in

He said don't you understand? How can you call yourself a man if you don't help me?
But then a change came over me, something pulled from within

And I heard I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water
I heard I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water, oh the water

And now I see so crystal clear the figure in the deep, it looked just like me and in his eyes I saw the fear
So I reached out my hand I pulled out my own reflection from the dirty water and I brought him to dry land

Sometimes we all hear I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water
I heard I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water
I heard I can't help myself
Help me I'm drowning
Oh the water, oh the water
