The Lyrics

Had a nice little life;
A little boat, a little beach, a little routine I liked.
A blue ocean view;
Free to go with the flow anywhere that I wanted to.
But the moment you walked through me with ease,
That's when I knew:

There's a difference in livin' and being dead.
You can't live forever seeing red.
Something's always missing, 'til you realize you've been mislead.
There's a difference in livin' and being dead.

'Til I floated in air easily,
Thought that I had it good, as good as it could be.
From the back of my deck,
Scared a fish, caused a breeze and a thousand cold sunsets.
But floating here by you girl I just caused,
The coolest one yet.

(Repeat Chorus)

My days are colder,
My sky a darker blue.
My nights seem warmer,
When I float next to you.

(Repeat Chorus)

I thought I was livin'.
There's a difference in livin' and being dead.
Being dead.
I'm really dead.
