"Water" as written by Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir, Einar Benediktsson, Bragi Olafsson, Sigtryggur Baldursson, Thor Eldon Jonsson and Margret Oernolfsdottir....
Wait for me underneath the water
Wait for me I have to go now
Into the big city
She pulls me firmly towards her
Wait for me underneath the water
Wait for me here
You'll be fine underneath the water
I'll be back early next summer
We met again at the lake
After all these years,
You said "want a drink?"
I love you
And you know I will be back
Hold your breath
And nestle into the ice
Wait for me underneath the water
Wait for me and count to ten
You'll look up and I will be there
Wait for me
The lake was frozen,
You took me for a walk over the ice,
I cracked
The ice cracked
I fell into the lake
I watched you through the eyes
Love into you
Wait for me underneath the water
Wait for me and sing along
"She's coming, coming, coming"
Wait for me
I watched you through the ice
I expected you to crawl for help
I smiled, you just stood there
I tried to kiss you through the ice,
You just walked away

    General CommentVery beautiful song with catchy tune in lots of it`s parts.The lines "and nestle into the ice" and "she`s coming,she`s coming,coming" make me yell like bjork.The first time I listened to it I thought the rythm is like the old pakistani-indian songs.
    I think bjork is the one who has always loved the one who goes down the ice crack.He has lost an unfaithful ex on the top of ice and now bjork is talking to him and asking him to wait until she comes underwater,a safe,hidden place for love.Underwater is both where you`re hidden and alone and in peace from betrayers and it`s where you die.I really love this concept.Bjork is talking so eagerly to this guy because she has always thought she will never be with him.He seemed to be so happy with his love;the love that eventually betrayed him.So bjork is going underwater in hope of finding her dream,her love.
    Well I think it`s a beautiful idea to go underwater,a lonesom,but safe and hidden place for from everyone else to find your love who has been betrayed.Every time I listen to it,I`m left choking and slightly dizzy:"why it`snot me the writer of this song?"
