"Diving For Hearts" as written by Corinne Bailey Rae and Jennifer Birch....
Till then I wasn't alive,
I longed for you like the lovesick moon pulls the tide.
So I peeled off my skin,
I just slipped right in
And I become alive.

'Cause down here there's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just bright cold calm,
I feel no harm.
This underwater feeling's abandon and it fires my heart.

Was it emotion
Or should I just keep on diving,
Keep on diving down?
Under this ocean
I long to keep on diving,
Till my heart is found.
It's got a hold on me
Can't forget the things I've seen

World will all end
And new worlds will begin
It's a thought so stark.
We're at once determinant,
Yet so insignificant,
Spinning out in the velvet dark.

Still, down here
There's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just this bright cold calm
Yeah, it leaves a scar
So show me how to find again,
If I'm lost, show me where you are

    General CommentI think the lyrics are actually "Yeah it leaves a scar" instead of "There's no scar"

    General CommentI love this album. Very much of it is soft and dream-like, full of grief and sorrow but almost like a wave of releif washing over you.
