1. The Undertow

From the recording Shipwrecked

Music and Lyrics – Melissa Cox and Chris Kenna


Cool water draws a line down my spine
Free-falling suspended in time
Underwater flying, no fear of dying
The sky is blue as far as I can see.

But the waves aren’t breaking
and the sea is taking me
And my head starts dipping ‘
cause my feet are slipping
And my arms are tiring
and my lungs are firing
And my hope is fading ‘
cause the shore is further than it was before.

Caught up in the undertow...
The undertow.

Flying in formation
with a school of manta rays
Don’t lose your concentration –
it’s a poisonous ballet.

But the waves aren’t breaking...

Caught up in the undertow...
The undertow
