About the song
This is a revamped version of an older song originally written by Thomas and Cynthia. The aquatic instrumentation and lyrics were inspired by one of Cynthia’s early childhood memories. Margaret’s succinct guitar solo adds that "extra something" it always lacked; this, combined with Cynthia’s awesome vocals, makes "Underwater Place" one of our best songs.
Lyrics
I'd made my mind up;
I'd had quite enough.
I was too small but
I just wanted it all.
You had the fins and
My feet were dangling;
Could only wade in
While I watched you swimming.

Diamonds on the waves,
I'm sinking through this space
In the soft embrace
Of an underwater place.

I pushed against
A floor made of sand
And left the land.
How could I know
My weight on the float
Wouldn't hold?

I'd made my mind up;
I'd had quite enough.
I put my foot down
But there was nothing, no ground.
You had the fins and
My float was caving in.
I started slipping
Until the water caught me.

Diamonds on the waves,
I'm sinking through this space
In the soft embrace
Of an underwater place.

I'd found my dream-sleep;
My thoughts were sinking deep.
There was nearly no sound
And it went dusk all around.
You had the fins and
You started reeling me in.
No fear of leaving,
No longer need for breathing.

No, no, no, let me go.
No, no, no, let me float.

Diamonds on the waves,
I'm sinking through this space
In the soft embrace
Of an underwater place.

No, no, no, let me go.
No, no, no, let me float.

Diamonds blur and haze,
I'm falling through this space.
Oh, I want to stay
In this underwater place.
