"Undertow" as written by and Timothy Z./slade Mosley....
So you want to be alone
Run and hide inside your home

Watch you fall away from me
Sinking into misery

Taste your smile and hold my hand
Make you laugh and make you dance

I remember this
Everything was in our kiss

Sink my hands into the sea
Reach your fingers up to me

Trust me one more time
I can only try

Throw yourself to me
And I'll try to pull you free

Let me try to pull you free
Let me try to pull you free

    General CommentTo me, it's about a man, despairing over something, maybe his empty, money-filled life, who is sinking into deep depression and his lady who wants so badly to save him. It might even literally be that he's committing suicide and that she saves him, but I'm not sure of that.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a woman watching a man she cares about sinking into despair. For some reason, I envision a woman losing her man to drug addiction and she is trying to "pul him free" of it. there are some pretty amazing remixes of this song, too.

    General Commentanother view i think of with these lyrics
    - she fell deeply in love with someone who couldn't handle what was happening aka, falling in love - and ran away in fear - she in turn sank deeply into misery from not being able to love - the person eventually came back and reached out to her, and she tries to love to liberate them (from their fear) - 'trust me one more time, i can only try - let me pull you free' = free to love

    Song MeaningAbout trying to rescue someone you care for deeply, possibly a former lover, from sinking deeper and deeper into depression.

    The sea/depression analogy here is apt, because like depression, the deeper you fall and the longer you are underwater, the more dangerous it becomes. The singer is trying to keep someone from being so swept away by their sadness that she can't reach him/her anymore.
