Underwater is, on a very basic level, a love song. But it is about a kind of love that permeates the subconscious to such an extent that it both intoxicates and haunts. It is about the struggle between the beauty that lies in such a thing and the need to destroy it.

lyrics

you took your time
you took what you needed.

you placed your hands upon my eyes
you took what was needed.

you used to laugh about my pride
as you danced with echoes in my mind.

and I have been holding tight
to driftwood on a waiting shore.

so I’ll hold you underwater
breathe with me if you can.
slowly fading with the sunlight,
your face is turning blank.

and the school girls dream of olden towns,
lemon lips and sunset walks
but I'll hold you underwater
while I can.

your words don't come out clear this time
as you place your lips close to me dear.

I won't cry for my sins
I won't cry for her
I won't cry.

oh don't you wonder
how I'm coping with your smoky ways?
‘cause I can still remember

your face when you walked into the room,
the smell of your hair and your cheap perfume,
your skin pressed against my arm and thigh,
the way you turned and sang into my ear.

oh my dear you're dying.

so I’ll hold you underwater
breathe with me if you can.
slowly fading with the sunlight,
your face is turning blank.

and the school girls dream of olden towns,
lemon lips and sunset walks
but I'll hold you underwater
while I can.
