about

Written, performed and produced by Robert LaSalle

lyrics

not afraid of the water
not afraid of the water
it's just my reflection
stares back at me
stares back instead of forwards
i was forewarned
by everyone who's
ever done anything

don't mind getting my feet wet
i'll stay afloat and i won't let
the future i see
weigh down on me
there's water all around me
i'm not afraid of drowning
i'm afraid of regret
and never really getting wet

but i can find resolution in what i'm doing
without, without doubt
that's what i'm doing
that's what i'm doing

not afraid of the water
i'm becoming my father
find a steady job somewhere
settle down somewhere
find brand new dreams
before i fulfill them
make a life with children
live a stable life
leave my angst behind

i just figure i'll lay low
'cause it's too shallow
to dive in head first
maybe someday i'll learn
i've got my eyes wide open
and i'm just hoping
someone will hear me first
i'm just hoping something works

but i can find resolution in what i'm doing
without, without doubt
that's what i'm doing
that's what i'm doing

not afraid of the water
wasn't scared of the water
because i tip toed in
i just found a new way to swim
but nobody found me
i'm not afraid of drowning
i'm afraid of regret
and never really getting wet

not afraid of the water
i'm gonna pick up a bottle
and i'm going to sing
troubled musician's theme
it just seems so fitting
to watch the sun go down over music city
