"Cold Water" as written by Gary Lightbody, Jonathan Graham Quinn, Sam Morris, William Angus Campbell, Charles Clark, Ben Dumville, Jennifer Reeve, Gareth Martin Russell and Stacey Jenifer Sievwright....
I feel faint, what have I just heard?
I feel dead from the neck up
Could you pour some water on my face?
It feels cold, at least I'll feel something else

I am not ready, I am not ready

It's hard enough to believe you've left us
But no goodbyes and no signs that you hurt
I could cry like you should of years ago
So I'll see you when I, I'm ready to go

I am not ready, I am not ready
I am not ready, I am not ready

    General CommentI think this track is about someone who committed suicide, and left without saying goodbye, or saying that they were hurting. Quite sad, but I think theres some anger in there too, like the lines "I could cry like you should of years ago,
    So I'll see you when i'm ready to go."

    Thats my reckoning anyway :-)

    General CommentBurkey, I think u're right! the "I could cry like you should of years ago" is resentment for the suicide, well in my opinion anyways....

    General CommentSo that's who Rebecca Wray is! I get it now! It's kinda nice "I'll see you when I'm ready to go" refers to the fact Lightbody reckons he will see her when he dies. It almost gives hope.
