Undertow Lyrics

Artist: Suzanne Vega
Album: Suzanne Vega

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
