"Bathwater" as written by Jenna Rachael Mcdougall and Whakaio Euben Taahi....
I watch the bathwater drain
It’s never looked quite the same
The weight comes back to my body
And I’m hopeless again
I watch the twist and the turns
Just to ride me from where it hurts
It’s like I’m watching my life
Go past the point of return
Of return

So I switch it off
And I let it go
Cause where I hide
You’ll never know
But when I’m down
You’ll always know
So bathwater hear me now
As I scream out from below

I watch the sun coming up
Over the trees and rooftops
It’s like it’s pissing the sky
I wish it all could just stop
So I can replay this scene
And live like life is a dream
I’m finding this other heart
Where nothing’s quite what it seems
What it seems

So I switch it off
And I let it go
Cause where I hide
You’ll never know
But when I’m down
You’ll always know
So bathwater hear me now
As I scream out from below

As I scream out from below

I watch the bathwater drain
It never looked quite the same
The weight comes back to my body

So I switch it off
And I let it go
Cause where I hide
You’ll never know
But when I’m down
You’ll always know
So bathwater hear me now
As I scream out from below

    My InterpretationBathwater is a metaphor for sadness and being overcome with it. As the bathwater drains, she is drained of the negative emotions and recovers from the crippling depression.

    This whole album, in Jenna's words, is "about a relationship I had that went sour due to many reasons, and I felt so helpless to stop it."
