There was gold on the hearts away
And the night calls start to stray
But friendly making here
Brought the trouble again
Yeah it was all gone, then the heart's away

She's gonna keep you slumming out
Fom the start
So you can keep on going down
In the dark

She pulled my body to the water, to the water
She pulled my body to the water, to the water
But I, I would never dream you'd slip away
Only what we breathe is gold again
Tonight, in the water
In the water

She was sold on a foolish mind
But the mind holds a lust for lies
But when the heart ticks slow
You felt the trouble again
Yeah you were so bold, in the late night times

She's got a touch that will sweat you out
In your seat
She's gonna leave you sinking down
To your knees

She pulled my body to the water, to the water
She pulled my body to the water, to the water
But I, I would never dream you'd slip away
Only what we breathe is gold again
Tonight, in the water
In the water

The sweet tongues are buried in the dark (x6)

She pulled my body to the water, to the water
She pulled my body to the water, to the water
But I, I would never dream you'd slip away
Only what we breathe is gold again
Tonight, in the water
In the water

    Song Fact“Originating at Malcolm Besley’s (drums) home studio in early 2013, this song went through so many changes that the original demo is not even remotely the same. Only one rhythmic element of the bass is all that remains.

    Apart from the main chorus line, the lyrics came last, which are based around the Greek myth of The Siren and the comparison of The Siren’s luring techniques to that of prostitution.”
