Moby, When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die: the meaning of the lyrics

When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die is a song about sadness, about the struggle of fighting depression and loneliness evry day, until the point when you have no strength anymore. When you are tired of fighting and holding up, you just feel you want to give up. And this is what Moby sings in the chorus:

I don’t want to swim the ocean
I don’t want to fight the tide
I don’t want to swim forever
When it’s cold I’d like to die

Moby talks with another person, who’s not there with him. And he asks them where they were when he felt lonely.

When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die: the complete lyrics

Where were you when I was lonesome?
Locked away with freezing cold
Someone flying only stolen
I can’t tell this light so old

I don’t want to swim the ocean
I don’t want to fight the tide
I don’t want to swim forever
When it’s cold I’d like to die

What was that my sweet sweet nothing?
I can’t hear you through the fog
If I holler let me go
If I falter let me know

I don’t want to swim the ocean
I don’t want to fight the tide
I don’t want to swim forever
When it’s cold I’d like to die

I don’t want to swim the ocean
I don’t want to fight the tide
