Lyrics Print lyrics

Put your head on my shoulder baby

Things can't get any worse

Night is getting colder

Sometimes life feels like it's a curse

 

I can't carry these sins on my back

Don't wanna carry anymore

I'm gonna carry this train off the track

I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor

 

Mmmmmm

Crash to the other shore

Mmmmmm

Swim to the ocean floor

 

Children killing children

While the students rape their teachers

Comets fly across the sky

While the churches burn their preachers

 

We can't carry these sins on our back

Don't wanna carry anymore

We're gonna carry this train off the track

We're gonna swim to the ocean floor

 

Mmmmmm

Crash to the other shore

Mmmmmm

Swim to the ocean floor

 

Let the water wash over you

Wash it all over you

Swim to the ocean floor

So that we can begin again

Wash away all our sin

Crash to the other shore

 

Mmmmmm

 

I can't carry these sins on my back

Don't wanna carry anymore

I'm gonna carry this train off the track

I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor

 

Mmmmmm

Crash to the other shore

Mmmmmm

Swim to the ocean floor

 

We can't carry these sins on our back

Don't wanna carry anymore

We're gonna carry this train off the track

We're gonna swim to the ocean floor

Crash to the other shore

Swim to the ocean floor

 

Mmmmmmmmm

Ooooo

 Ray Of Light

Song

One interviewer made a remark about how many songs on the Ray Of Light-album had something to do with water: Drowned World, Swim, Mer Girl. Madonna answered that water is one of the most essential elements of life.

Personally, this song is my favorite of the album. It's often underestimated. It's so vulnerable and at the same time so powerful.
