Innocent, they swim
I tell them 'no'
They just dive right in
But do they know?

It's a long way down
When you're alone
And there's no air or sound
Down below the surface

There's something in the water
I do not feel safe
It always feels like torture
To be this close

I wish that I was stronger
I'd separate the waves
Not just let the water
Take me away

There was a time I'd dip my feet
And it would roll off my skin
Now every time I get close to the edge
I'm scared of falling in

'Cause I don't want to be stranded again
On my own
When the tide comes in
And pulls me below the surface

There's something in the water
I do not feel safe
It always feel like torture
To be this close

I wish that I was stronger
I'd separate the waves
Not just let the water take me away

[Break]

Verona oooh
Verona ooh
From the first time that I saw you
Verona, I knew
That tomorrow would be different
With a lady like you

Verona ooh
Verona ooh

From the first time that I saw you
Verona, I knew
That tomorrow would be different
With a lady like you

    Song MeaningI think the meaning is about emotions/relationships. Water is a common symbol for emotion. I think he sings about being afraid of committing to something, maybe something like a relationship. He warns the others but they igonore.
    He has been there, "lost himself in his emotions" and he is afraid of letting it happen again. He wants to be strong so that it doesnt happen again.

    Maybe a bit too much interpretation form my side, but Im curious what you guys think

    General CommentI thought The Water and Verona were two separate songs.

    General Comment^They are. Verona is a hidden track that starts after The Water.

    But anyway. If the song isn't about a fear of water, I have no idea what the meaning is. ;) Great song though, love it.
