Song Description

Song is about being heartbroken but hiding it and acting like you are fine to those around you but you are crying inside. Like crying underwater, "nobody sees" your tears.

Story Behind the Song

Song was inspired by a situation where someone was married and in love with a former boyfriend who was also married and in love with her. Every day both of them were going through the motions with their respective spouses, but crying inside because they could not be together. They had dated over 20 years previously and were very much in love, but they were both recording artists on major labels and touring all over the world all of the time. The distance finally came between them. He married someone else and she went on with her life (because he did) but she never stopped loving him. They reconnected and she realized he'd never stopped loving her either, but they are now both committed to other people, thus Tears Underwater.

Lyrics

"TEARS UNDER WATER"
Written by Debra Mitchell-Adams & Carlett Martin/BMI/022713



VERSE
OOH LATELY I BEEN FEELING EMPTY
GOTTA CASE OF LONELINESS
AND IT REACHES RIGHT DOWN TO THE SOUL OF ME
HIDING THESE EMOTIONS GOT ME IN A MESS

PRE
HARD TO LISTEN IN THE POURING RAIN
WHEN I'M FEELING SO UNCHAINED
I KEEP ON TRYING TO FIGHT THIS
BUT THESE TEARS ARE DROWNING ME

CHORUS
FEELS LIKE I'M CRYING TEARS UNDER WATER
WASTIN THEM OVER AND OVER,OOH OOH, BUT I KEEP CRYING
NOBODY SEES WHEN YOU'RE CRYING TEARS UNDER WATER
BUT YOUR HEART IS STEADY BREAKING, NEVER THE LESS

VERSE
WISH THAT I COULD TURN IT, COMPLETELY OFF
Pause ANYTHING TO NUMB THIS PAIN
THIS AIN'T EVEN, NOTHING, WHERE I WANNA BE
CAN'T LET THIS GET THE BEST OF ME

PRE
SAME

CHORUS
SAME

BRIDGE
I'VE GOTTA MOVE ON, CUS I REALIZE THINGS DON'T ALWAYS GO MY WAY
FIX MY FACE, IT'S THE BED THAT I MADE
SO I'MA FINISH THIS SONG AFTER I STOP CRYING

REPEAT CHORUS OUT
