5. Swimming Into Darkness

about

This is the last of five songs based on five paintings by John Conway (themselves based on five other songs). A finale to this story - a melancholy acceptance of loneliness.

lyrics

Swimming into darkness,
Out here is where I belong
I don't need anybody to hold me down
I'll stay here of my own accord
And never think to question this existence
Happiness comes easily to others
Happiness comes easily to others
Swimming into darkness
Up here is where I belong
I don't need anybody to hold me down
I'll stay here of my own accord
And never think to question this existence
Happiness comes easily to others
But I found tonight it's only cloudy on this side
I pushed up through the sky, it's only cloudy on this side
I didn't need to worry, it's only cloud on this side
I climbed up to the heights, it's only cloudy on this side
Yeah I saw tonight it's only cloudy on this side
I didn't need to worry, it's only could on this side
And there's no need to cry, it's only cloudy on this side
No better time to die, it's only cloudy on this, cloudy on this side
Happiness, oh happiness
Happiness comes easily
Happiness comes easily
Happiness comes easily to others
