Music Monday: Let Me Drown

This is another one of my kids favorites. The song is “Let Me Drown” by We As Human. The song is off of their self-titled album. I really love the lyrics for this song. At times we think we’re invincible. At times we think that we can do it all without Him and that’s how we roll. This song gives a great interpretation of our lives and our eternal need for Christ and how he is the only one who can wash us clean. If you want to read another analogy along those lines, check out Boogie Boards for Life.


We As Human
Let Me Drown Lyrics

Now I see I can’t see myself
I believed I was stronger than I felt
Everything turned to golden
Then it fell apart
It’s the same old story
It’s the same sad song
Where did I go wrong?

Lay me down in the waves
Let the water wash away
And if I leave with the tide
In the morning I will rise
So lay me down
Don’t lift me out
Let me drown

Take a breath
Hold it in and sink beneath
Feel the eyes of the living watching me
Lay me down in the water
Leave the past behind
There’s a time to be born
And a time to die
And somewhere they collide

Lay me down in the waves
Let the water wash away
And if I leave with the tide
In the morning I will rise
So lay me down
Don’t lift me out
Let me drown

I have walked in distant waters
Let me drown
But I never walked alone
Let me drown
If my heart should ever wander
Let the water lead me home

Lay me down in the waves
Let the water wash away
And if I leave with the tide
In the morning I will rise
So lay me down
Don’t lift me out

Lay me down in the waves
Let the water wash away
And if I leave with the tide
In the morning I will rise
So lay me down
Don’t lift me out
Let me drown
