Music video observations[]

Jonna Lee is seen in a black jumpsuit running from faceless figures donning black jumpsuits. She holds a black cube in her hands, and hides behind a tree. The scene changes to Lee dressed in white, at the shore, seemingly frustrated as she hits the water. She then dives into it, and the same faceless figures from before look into the water, appearing to be searching for her. As Lee swims around in the waters, jewels are seen surrounding her, as well as a fish net. She is then seen dancing on a shore. The video ends with the faceless figures at the shore, pulling out the fish net.

Lyrics[]

Deep blue diver, with our hopes in your hands
Won’t you take me with you to another land?
Pure sapphire hiding in the sands of the darkest depths ever known to man
Join me, there is nothing we can’t do

What composure and sharp slight of hand
At night I lay awake and hear you call my name

In the strangest lands I will grasp my chance
Sing the unsung words I have searched to spell

And I shackle myself, I risk it all
Bringing us closer to the core returning treasures to the shore
And together we take back what is ours
Hunting for pearls on the ocean floor for us to cherish and adore

Days are hollow
Nights come to my defence
I shut my eyes and focus not to lose her sense
It’s her we follow
She holds the secrets buried
I know the place she goes, I wave him farewell
Join me, there is nothing we can't do

In the strangest lands I will grasp my chance
Sing the unsung words I have searched to spell

And I shackle myself, I risk it all
Bringing us closer to the core returning treasures to the shore
And together we take back what is ours
Hunting for pearls on the ocean floor for us to cherish and adore

Hunting for pearls on the ocean floor
