Making peace with the undertow
Sleeping where roses cannot grow
Forgetting everything I know

Playing with matches in the dark
Choosing to trust who I am not
Watching the world burn down and laughing at the sparks

Don’t have to live with the ‘do or die’
Smiling is not a compromise
Free from the need to run and hide

The [paper dolls?] dance
We do what we can
And find the strength in the weakness in letting go

I’ve come to terms with the undertow
The story stays the memory goes
I realize this is what I chose

I read the lines of the fining drugs
Saw all the things I could live without
Already made it through the aftermath

    General CommentI've only heard this on Katy rose's myspace a couple of times (I couldn't find it on itunes or anything else) but I think it's a beautiful song. The "undertow" is something that pulls you back in water. So I guess this song is about something pulling her back?? I'm not sure.

    General Comment"I read the lines of the fining drugs"
    I think it's
    "I read the lines of the final draft"
    but i'm not totally sure.
