Plumb - Drifting Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
There's a sea of lonely,
Swimming sad,
Looking just for
An arm to grab.
I don't need to
Understand.
I'm just lending you
The two that I have.

[Chorus:]
You might be drifting
And can't find the shore,
So Hopeless
And all alone.
The waves are crashing
All around you.
Just when you've lost the will to live
You see the sun.

[Verse 2:]
Can we make a searchlight
From all the bridges that we burn?
Do you see a rescue
Or a deeper kind of hurt?
Who could love you?
Who could hold you?
I'd swim across the sea.
You don't have to be alone
Where the shallow gets so deep.

[Chorus:]
You might be drifting
And can't find the shore,
So Hopeless
And all alone.
The waves are crashing
All around you.
Just when you've lost the will to live
You see the sun.

[Bridge:]
I am hurt and nearly drown.
Open up your eyes.
I cry for help. You turn around.
Open up your eyes.
Farther from the shore,
Or you'll be farther from the shore.
I am hurt and nearly drown.
You're not alone.
I cry for help. You turn around.
I'm not letting go.
Farther from the shore,
So you're not
Farther from the shore.

[Chorus:]
You might be drifting
And can't find the shore,
So Hopeless
And all alone.
The waves are crashing
All around you.
Just when you've lost the will to live
You see the sun.

  1. erik wille

    I've drifted so far away in this life, that the shore has been out of sight for years,there's nothing left in life, so now I'm only waiting for the afterlife, eternity with Jesus, my Savior, King and brother :)

    Love u so much Plum!!!❤️🙏🏻

    Pretty much a catchy song. I liked the beat and her and the guy's vocals is simply good and calming.

    Tamás Fábián

    The guy is the singer in the band Jars of Clay ;)

  9. Sorry TurdStation

    I heard the "Fear of Tigers" remix of this song first but damn this is good, real good.

    justinbgaga

    Thanks for understanding the difference between an original (like this "Drifting" song), and what they call a "remix".

    thetruckersrealm1 second agoFirst of all .. The Lord works thru others every moment of every day , Although what I am about to share is how the Lord touched me and made himself known to me. I was adopted into a jewish family 52 years ago , growing up I never fit in and had issues with the concept of God and this religious thing. I almost felt as if I didn't belong there and I couldn't or just wasn't ready to understand this thing about Jesus .( still not sure I do).. However , about a year ago I was in my truck (I will never forget this)  in Weatherford Oklahoma  at the truckstop, my life up to this point had been a mess. Feeling that something was wrong and the normal thoughts of uselessness and anger were ever present, I laid down in my sleeper after a long day and a lot of miles. All I can tell you is for some reason I had left my radio on todays top hits sort of channel... its almost funny , but I was sleeping and I heard this song, this lady was singing my deepest thoughts, my eyes opened ... I sat up in my bed and listened as she sang  and a tear fell from my eye, than two  .. I  knew  from deep inside of me that this song was expressing a messege to me .. I  tried to get this out of my head but it wasn't happening and  it seemed that I kept hearing the song, I would change the station to a rock station and low and behold the song came on yet again... I made a phone call to a friend  who is a Christian and explained this to him... He told me .. he didn't know what was going on ,But whatever it was the Good Lord was trying to make his presence known to me and wanted me to keep close to him... Now with that being said , I hung up and went about my normal routine ... one month later  I was diagonosed  with bladder cancer, 4 months after that I suffered a mojor heart attack in Santa Maria Ca.. I have been ok scince, up till the other day ... when out of the blue I hear this song again , kind of like  don't worry , I havnt gone anywhere I'm right here... and yes , I pray, I still have the fear that after the way my life has gone and the things ive done  will not fit the bill for jesus .. Than I hear this song again... so ... Lord.... Thankyou for your devine love .. and Plumb thankyou for allowing the good lord to use you to send a messege...

    Nadia H

    Jesus came for the whole world, no matter who you are, where you've been, what you feel, Jesus loves and wants you. Don't be afraid you aren't good enough! He isn't looking for someone already perfect...

    justinbgaga

    +TheTruckersRealm You've been SO blessed, like not many of us ever will be. It reminds me of the guy (John Newton) who was a TRUE pirate in his day (back in the 18th century), and wrote the actual song called AMAZING GRACE upon his own "awakening":

    Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
    That saved a wretch like me!

    I once was lost, but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.
    'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;

    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed!
    Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
    I have already come;

    'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.
    The Lord has promised good to me,
    His word my hope secures;

    He will my shield and portion be
    As long as life endures.
    Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,

    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.
    The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;

    But God, who called me here below,
    Will be for ever mine.
    Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
    That saved a wretch like me!

    I once was lost, but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.
    (1779)

    And here is as close as one can get to the original in today's circumstances:

    timothy mckean

    i agree, this video does not match the depth of the song, no pun intended.

  16. justinbgaga

    I wish to thank my friend Tim Bradshaw, for being so (outside of the norm) understanding.

    Thanks Tim!

  17. Sori Romero

  25. Brooke Kesinger

    I love this song but I don't get this video

    truediva18

    I think it is following the lyrics. She will go to any lengths to make sure that her love is secure. She will be in pieces with him. If he is drowning, she will rescue him. She will bring him to safety. She will bring him back to God.

    truediva18

    @justinbgaga
    Best in life to you too!

  26. XxellexX

  31. Jacob Butner

    Ehhh. Radioactive dating is accurate when the object is measured, but it can't prove that the decay rate was always at the same rate.

  32. Jacob Butner

    How do you prove that fossils are from different eras?

  33. Jacob Butner

    You can't prove that God made the Earth 2,500 years before Jesus was born. You can only approximate the beginning of death

  34. Fanoren Gaming

    funny thing, I find awesome songs that I like, and maybe two months later I find out they are christian rock. I'm not annoyed with it or anything but... HOW????

  35. Jenna Sweet

    Nice video and song...so true you speak right to me because that is exactly how I feel...Thanks for sharing and having the courage to speak out on that radio show about your life because yeah it has happened to me too and Your really helping put things in perspective for me.. Thank you so much GOD bless you all. :)

  42. 156Adrian165

    She has a fantastic voice! I'm glad I've found her music again :) And her purple dress... GORGEOUS!! Same style as my grad dress, but not the same colors :) Plumb is a fantastic singer and I pity those who think otherwise.

  43. Anne G.

    "Hope springs eternal"

    Totally what this is about. Oh and they should've filmed the video at dawn lol

  53. jalarise84

    I like how she wrapped him in a red cloak at the end. To me, that symbolizes the blood of Jesus Christ! She's kind of strange-looking, but her music is so powerful!! I love it.

  54. Akki

    im an atheist and i love it! :D

  55. Mopheadmusic2000

    Plumb's music always does what I wish other's would. It has movement and color. She never comes off as artificial, and that's a remarkable thing EVEN for a Christian artist.

  56. Danny Guzman

    Good look purple ;)

  57. Neal

    LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!

  58. MellowPavoGames

    Actually, I know how you feel.
    A few months ago, everyone in my social circle EXCEPT my co-workers ditched me en masse. I honestly thought a few times I was about to lose my marbles for real.
    But, weird as it may sound, it helped a lot to tell God how I felt. I mean, I seriously ranted and cried and raged and walked the floor.
    It didn't get better right way, but I felt a weight fall off my shoulders.
    Hang in there. We love you, 'Kay? :)

  59. ClaytonFest

    lol u say that about all her videos. quite true though

  60. jcfbell3001

    she isn't more famous because she doesn't make a point of displaying her knockers like Katy Perry

  61. Yazeed Alshaalan

    Only 105K? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

  62. azjscott

    WHY IS SHE NOT MORE MAINSTREAM? I BET ON HER YEARS AGO TO BE HUGE AND IT HAS NOT HAPPENED. DO TELL WHY? I DON'T GET IT. SHE IS GREAT!!!!!!!!

  63. greenish04

    I love this song! sometimes we may not understand, we just need to look at are situation from a different perspective. All i know is that i don't want to be drifting.

  64. EdenOfChaos

    For 5 years my life has been complete crap. Doing the right thing only makes it worse but i refuse to change...but theres no fucking shore, ill never see the sand, so what the FUCK?! yea its a beautiful song, and a beautiful thought but its complete crap.

    Aaron Dugan

    EdenOfChaos I hope this reaches you. God loves you. That is not a bandaid. That is the constant. On the sea, everything is endless. Time, distance, storms... What if it's not about landing, but learning to navigate. the world is constantly shifting along with our lives. What we know changes for the better or even the worse. But God remains a constant. In the beginning, there was only water, until God gathered it together, then the dry land appeared. Whether you become someone who can live underwater, he makes the land appear, or gives you wings to fly, he will be your constant. My father left, my family fractured and my grandmother, whom I took care of, forgot my name. A thousand problems. A thousand variables. A thousand miles. Only one constant. Jesus. So scream it at the water, scream it at the storm, yell it to the horizon. Even if your voice cannot be heard, he can hear you. His promise is not to give us a good life. His promise is to be with us. His promise is to never leave us. His promise is to remember us. Please don't give up. Please. Here at least it's one fellow drifter. So let's hang on a little longer, okay?

    Aaron Dugan

    EdenOfChaos, forgive me if my answer was a bit arrogant or arms' length. I should have asked you how you were doing these past five years. I hope you are in a better place in your life now. May the love of God the Father be with you always.

  65. rishi kataria

    I heard this song last night at Youth, (basically Church but more Teenager based) and afterwords this song was playing. I LOVE IT :D

  70. Petey7158

    Really good song.. I also like her song cut.. Very well done!!!

    Tiffany is a great artist as is Dan Hazeltine great collaboration!

  73. A S

    @WeavelMoonWraith Sure is!

  74. Bill Weisler

    I would love a chord sheet for this song. It is inspiring and we would love to share it with others when doing outreach.

  75. windchaserx91

    this song is just plain awesome!

  76. sethmalcolmroy

    i think its about us helping others problems they think they can't surmount. showing the love of Jesus

  77. alli sunshine

    what's up with the dislikes? this is a very beautiful song!

  78. Shana Heneghan

    Dan Haseltine...such a good vocalist. She's not bad either. But he makes this song soooooooo much better! :0)

  79. christopher27531

    This is a great song; I really like this song too. I have heard the radio version and can't get enough of it either; it's more upbeat but still speaks to me about the love of God and of the love we should have for one another. When we feel lost or all alone God is there, we just need to cry out to him. He will not let us down; I feel that Tiffany is singing about God's love expressed by caring Christians reaching out to those who feel lost or hopeless.

  80. jrcgjb

    I love this song. I love Plumb. I only heard this song a couple days ago and so far its hard for me to not listen to, but what is the song about? Does it have something to deal with Christianity or the lord? Anyone know?

  81. Brucev7

    Great Number. Judges 5:3
    Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.

    30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and *said to him, “(X)You of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly (Y)God’s Son!”

  97. Brucev7

    'See the Sign' It's Jesus Christ. The Rescuer. Matthew 14:25-26
    25 And in (A)the [a]fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. 26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is (B)a ghost!” And they cried out [b]in fear.
