  • Lyrics: Under the water the waves churn the sand / But the surface remains undisturbed Trying to read you in maps made of parchment / Pages marked and unturned I sit at this table with the tools of my trade / commit observation to verse If I've been here before I've forgotten the way / No hope yet of charting a course To bring me closer to you / If that's what you want me to do May this compass and sextant and evening star / Show me a way to your truth Under the surface / Under the surface These may be dangerous waters or deep / But a careful soul might get through Patiently picking a passage to share / That might bring me closer to you I think I'll try climbing the mast to the top Where I might get a much clearer view of the rocks Oh I want to dive � into your ocean / There's not much that I wouldn't do To bring me closer to you / If that's what you want me to do May this compass and sextant and evening star / Show me a way to your truth Under the surface / Under the surface Five fathoms deep / I dive down I can't sleep / I may drown Would it be / too strange If we / had a sea-change I want to go back to the moment we had / When I sang you that song on the beach We just scratched the surface / And then you were gone like the treasure I couldn't reach I long to be with you as much as I long / For the bracing embrace of the sea And diving deep under the surface to taste / Her salt and honey Endlessly rocking me Endlessly taking me Under the surface Under the surface
