I believe right now if I could
I would swallow you whole
I would leave only bones and teeth
We could see what was underneath
And you would be free then

Once I thought only tears could make us free
Salt wearing down to the bone
Like sand against the stone
Against the shoreline

I am friend to the undertow
I take you in, I don't let go
And now I have you

I wanted to learn all the secrets
From the edge of a knife
From the point of a needle
From a diamond
From a bullet in flight
I would be free then

I am friend to the undertow
I take you in, I don't let go
And now I have you

I wanted to see how it would feel
To be that sleek
And instead I find this hunger's
Made me weak

I believe right now if I could
I would swallow you whole
I would leave only bones and teeth
We could see what was underneath
And you would be free then

I am friend to the undertow
I take you in, I don't let go
And now I have you

I am friend to the undertow
I take you in, I don't let go
And now I have you

Wow, hasn't been played for 13 years...
It\'s obvious she\'s trying to get away from the \"ordinairy\" songstructure, melodies and harmonies. Fine!, but in this case it\'s too much only that and not leading to a very convincing song at the same time IMO.
:clap: beautiful song from an incredible cd, pleeze do yourselves a huge favor and check out her other work :) :D ;)
I just dont get her, sorry
The under-toad? :??:

It's from her first album! She's grown since then. Better voice now, better songs. :wave:

Nice easy song. Not too complex but nice vocals and very soothing to listen to. I bought her CD immediately after I heard this song.
this might be my first \"3\" ever. but then again, i think all her stuff is ho-hum.
