"Under The Surface" as written by Lars Horntveth, Marit Larsen and Kare Vestreheim....
It's such a funny sensation to be
So happy that you wanna die
Promises always were crazy to me
But never was I so surprised

Minutes are longer when we are apart
Your presence's more than I can handle
It's come to the point where I wonder if I
Could ever be luckier when

[Chorus]
Suddenly I'm back at the core
Thinking of her who had you before
Were you as good
As good as we are
Do you remember?
Did you love her the way you love me?
Is there a chance that there might be
Traces of her that you carry under the surface?

Lend me your ears, I would like to confess
I'm doubting that you can be real
By your side wearing a beautiful dress
I celebrate how good it feels

Say that you love me, say that it's true
I know that I want to believe you
But somehow silence speaks louder than words
I'm worried she's still on your mind

[Chorus]

Mmm... I know that I'm selfish
I know that it's bad
I know, but it's driving me mad
It's driving me mad

[Chorus]
Under the surface
Under the surface

    General CommentI really like this song. I think Marit is a little more musically talented than Marion.. Her voice used to seem young and childish in M2M but somehow it's gotten.. more mature? oO; Perhaps that's the word for it. Or the music got more mature. One of those.

    The song is pretty straight forward, but for those who don't understand it..

    She was in love with a friend, and before she knew it the feeling became mutual, possibly so fast she can't believe it's really happening. But she has her doubts and insecurities, still wondering if he's with her because he's trying to make up for what he lost or if he genuinely cares about her and not the girl he had before.

    General CommentMarit is basically saying: If you told her that you loved her and it ended, what makes it sure that the times you say "I love you" are true and it's not happening again. If you loved her in the way you love me, isn't it possible that you still feel something strong about her?
