"In the Shallows" as written by and Igor Alexandre Haefeli Elena Veronica Tonra....
Let the water rise,
Let the ground crack.
Let me fall inside,
lying on my back
lying on my back

Dry your smoke-stung eyes,
so you can see the light.
staring at the sky
watching stars collide
watching stars collide

If you leave,
When I go...
You'll find me,
in the shallows. (x2)

When the time comes,
on the last day...
when they start to come down,
will you just,
will you run away?
will you run away?

Let it all rain down,
from the blood stained clouds.
Come out, come out, to the sea my love...
and just,
drown with me...
drown with me...

If you leave,
When I go...
You'll find me,
in the shallows. (x2)

Lying on my back,
Lying on my back,
watching stars collide.

    My InterpretationI personally feel like this song is a plea.

    It's a plea from Elena Tonra (Daughter's amazing singer) to her man whoever it may be to not leave when things look dark. She wants her lover to find that calm through the rain that drowns them. She wants them to drown together. Not in a literal sense of course but she wants them to face whatever tragedy or whatever battle they are placed in and thrive together.

    Else she is left alone to sleep IN THE SHALLOW waters that could've been the couple's queen sized bed.

    I love Daughter and their lyrics :) Very Death Cab for Cutie-esque!
