Under the Water is the eleventh track on the album "All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend". It was written by AURORA and Electric and produced by Odd Martin Skålnes, Electric and Magnus Skylstad.

About the song Edit

She said to the 405: "I love to sing this song live. It reminds me of my roots. It's dark, a bit folky and it got tiny inspirations on percussion etc. from some Norwegians metal bands. I love heavy metal".[1]

To her, it’s more cathartically emotional than ’emo’; “I’ve always been very drawn to sadness and to nightmares and to scary stories or going out in the dark – I don’t know why. There’s something (whispers) mystical about it – which is very exciting, isn’t it?”[2]

Lyrics Edit

Under the water we can't breathe, we can't breathe
Under the water we die
Under the water there is no one watching
Under the water we are alone

Then why do we jump in?
Why do we jump in?
Under the water we die

So many souls, that lost control
Where did they fall?
Into the deep, what do they seek?
Where did they fall?
Where did they fall?

Hearts will dream again
Lungs will breathe in
Wash away the sins
It's where it begins
Feet won't fail you now
Arms won't let you down
Wash away the sins

Under the water we can't be together
Under the water we die

Then why do we jump in?
Why do we jump in?
Under the water we die

So many souls, that lost control
Where did they fall?
Into the deep, what do they seek?
Where did they fall?
Where did they fall?

Hearts will dream again
Lungs will breathe in
Wash away the sins
It's where it begins
Feet won't fail you now
Arms won't let you down
Wash away the sins

It's where it begins

Hearts will dream again
Wash away the sins
