Verse 1:

Swimming in a sea of humanity
Searching for a beach where the sand is free
Drifting...

Never really know
Just exactly where to go
And I'm drowning
Somebody throw me a life line
Oh, and I'm going down for the first time
A litttle love'll do just fine
And I'm just swallowing water

Chorus:

Keep hearing Davy Jones Daughter
Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me

Verse 2:

Floating, in an ocean
Waiting for the coast guard
I'm treading water
In emotions over my head
Sinking...

The fog is rolling in
I don't know where to begin
To keep from drowning
Somebody throw me a life line
Oh, and I'm going down for the second time
A little love'll do just fine
But I'm just swallowing water

Chorus:

Keep hearing Davy Jones daughter
Calling me, calling me, calling me
, calling me

Bridge:

Just when you feel like your life's lost at sea
'Cuz your ship has gone down
Stop hanging on to the driftwood in your life
Dive to the depths of your soul

Verse 3:

Swimming, underwater
Far beneath the waves
Davy Jones daughter
Is a mermaid who shows me the way, oh
Flowing...

The tide is going out
And with it all my doubt
There's no more drowning
Turn the searchlights down low
'Cuz I've gone down for the last time
Tell the coast guard to go
'Cuz I can breathe underwater

Chorus:

And I hear Davy Jones daughter
Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me

Reprise:

Yes, I can breathe underwater
Now I see Davy Jones daughter
Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me
Oh, Calling me, calling me, calling me

Oh, Calling me, calling me, calling me
Oh, Calling me, calling me, calling me...
