"Belly Up" as written by Martin Sjoelie and Maria / Mena....
Our old world is hard to find
I doubt it was ever mine
To keep
Were you always this unkind?

We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us

I don't recognize your doubt
Please say something
Darling, shout at me
How unfair to shut me out

We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us

I must say, I'll
Always love you
Even if it hurts

Have I driven us to this?
Our bickering
Has reached its limit
I can't remember our last kiss

We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us
We lie belly up
In the pool of us

I must say, I'll
Always love you
Even if it hurts
I must say, I'll
Always love you
Even if it hurts

(Whoa)

La la la la
La la la la
Belly up

(Ah)

La la la la
La la la la
Belly up

(Ah)

La la la la
La la la la
Belly up

(Ow)

La la la la
La la la-la

(Whoa)

I must say I'll
Always love you
Even if it hurts
I must say I'll
Always love you
Even if it hurts

    General CommentFirst I believe 'Our bickering has reached it's limb'
    should be: 'Our bickering has reached it's limit'

    Well I think the song must be about a breakup ('our OLD world is hard to find') and he turns out to be quite mean, not talking to her and probably avoiding her, at the times when they're not argueing.

    I'm not quite sure what 'We lie belly up in the pool of us' means, but I figure it is that they're still stuck in what they were, it's all around them. Also she'll love him forever, however much it hurts, which speaks for itself.

    General CommentThanks for the correction (I try my best hearing the lyrics but I;m hearing impaired so i miss hear them at times)

    =]



    Yeah I agree it's a breakup song.


    Belly Up I believe is a symbolism (when you drown you are 'belly up'). So it's as if they drowning in their own relationship, the death is obviously the end of it.

    Yes her love for him lyrics speak for herself - I can relate to it. I guess when a relationship gets bitter we all assume all feelings are dead but not always. Even though the bitterness is painful to her, the love will go on.

    General CommentI agree. The relationship is dead much like an animal who drown in a pool... they lie belly up.
