"Undertow" as written by and Torquil Campbell Patrick Mcgee....
Living for only one (When will it stop?)
Caught in the undertow (When will it stop?)
Trying to fight the call (When will it stop?)
Why does the night when we always

All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes
All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes
All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes

(When will it stop?)
No one forever young (When will it stop?)
I'm caught in the undertow (When will it stop?)
The brittle and bitter bone (When will it stop?)
Forgot to know how to grow

All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes
All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes
All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes
All the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes, at your eyes

You pick the storm or you pick the shore
Both take you to the floor, to the floor,
To the floor, (When will it stop?) to the floor (When will it stop?)
(When will it stop?) (When will it stop?) (When will it stop?)

    General CommentIt's about someone that had a bad experience with rejection, and who's met someone who is innocent, pure, and able to take her heart away again. She IS looking for love but also pushing it away. All of a sudden, this boy realizes what she is going through, and feels for her, seeing this new darkness. The innocence is beginning to change into something else. He loves her, too; now, he's not so pure, and can't understand.
    You can't make maturing stop, can you?

    General CommentThis song is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I wish I could live in the soundscape it produces.


    Anyway, it almost sounds like "the wind's at your eyes, at your eyes..." to me. Ah well.

    General Commentthe girl had a bitter experience with love and she chooses not to get tangled again. it's as if her heart had forgotten to grow out of that bitterness. a new possibility of love has arrived but she's trying to fight it back. relationships are complicated.

    General CommentI agree - I think it's "all the winds at your eyes" or something like that. Seems to fit better with the movement associated with "when will it stop"
