Shallows

Shallows” (sometimes referred to as “In The Shallows”) is the tenth and final track off of Daughter’s debut album, If You Leave.

 

Background

In an interview, Elena Tonra talked about the song, stating:

The song In the Shallows is about death and being afraid of that and afraid of what happens after. When we’re gone, can you find me because I don’t want to be alone. I find death really interesting to write about.”

Lyrics

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
in the shallows

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
in the shallows

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

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
