Heaven don’t want me
Heaven don’t fool me
No one will understand
And it’s alright - yeah…
I’m feelin’ these changes
Everybody is strangers
No one will lend a hand
And I guess that’s life

You say, you got a feelin’
You figured out, the writing on the wall
And angels on the ceiling
Don’t come to you, when you call
You found your own religion
And searched your heart, for somethin’ more
Still naked in the kitchen
Tryin’ to wipe yourself off, of the floor

No, I won’t take you for granted
These broken arms, can hold you
No, I won’t take you for granted

[Chorus 1]
Cause I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water, yeah
I’m hiding under water
Wash me away

You say, it don’t matter
I’m livin’ loud, I’m livin’ long
And hear the phony laughter
Echoing on and on
I’m hiding under water
I pray to God, wash me away
Can’t hear the child’s wonder
My innocence got hushed, along the way - yeah

No, I won’t take you for granted
These broken arms, can hold you
No, I won’t take you for granted

[Chorus 2]
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water, yeah
Wash me away
Wash me away
And let me hear you say, it’s o.k.
I’m hiding under water
Wash me away

You don’t say, a word
Inside I know
You don’t say, that it hurts
And tonight killed slowly
All the love, in the world
Won’t let you let go - let you, lettin’ go now

[Chorus 3]
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water, yeah
Wash me away
Wash me away
And let me hear you say, I’m o.k.
I’m hiding under water
I’m hiding under water
Yeah, I’m hiding under… hey
I’m hiding under...
Wash me away
Wash me away

Maybe heaven will want me
Maybe heaven won’t fool me
Maybe someone will give a damn
And have a life

    General Commenti can't believe no one has said anything about this song. it's pretty amazing. the passion and emotion in her voice are breath taking. as for the meaning, i'm not sure. in my opinion, i think it's about someone trying to change and find something better about her life, but is having a difficult time, and she's wanting others to help her or she's comparing herself to someone else in her changes. but these lyrics are different then the song i have...so yeah!

    General Commentwhat i think is that everything that she's tried she has done wrong and always messed up and found a person that she's in love with and is scared but yet knows that she can love him even tho she's hurting because she wants to be with him so bad or she just feel's like an outcast and no one cares or knows how she feel's

    General CommentNot the first song I heard of Beth Hart's, but definitely the first song that made me fall in love with her and her music.
