Under Water
Big Talk Lyrics


I say you've had enough of livin' the life
We see the light and you turn off
Your solid step is losin' the stride
We watch you swaggerin' on

Well, could you be any worse than me?
Gotta try to fix the leak, here's a rope
Hang it up, boy, reel it in

And you can hear it from the other side
You'll know it's comin' down the ranks
Once a silhouette, now you're walking that plank

I said you don't have to keep me under water
Yeah, you don't have to keep me under water

One day you moved away
Said you'd be by the city
I heard you found another way
Said it made it too pretty

She hears the sounds off the sounds in the summertime
It's not the same ones that she's used to but it feels all right
You know the ones that you hear to make you come alive
Those are the times we pretend

No but you don't have to keep me under water
Yeah, you don't have to keep me under water

High time you choose your innocence
Next time I leave with nothing left, oh, nothing left

And you could hear it from the other side
And you'll know it's comin' down the ranks
Once a silhouette, now you're walking that plank
Sayin', "Who's that hanging on your side?
Take that kiss outside"

You don't have to keep me under water
I said you don't have to keep me under water
I said you don't have to keep me under water
You'll always be a true believer

I said you don't have to keep me under water
You'll always be a true believer

You wanna keep in the shadows
Yeah, you keep in the shadows
You keep in the shadows
You keep in the dark

One of my favorite songs ever.

Lu Nunzi

for me the best solo album from the killers' members is this one, I just love it! It's rock and roll, with awesome lyrics. I don't like Flamingo :( it's other style that i'm not into

Lukas Smigielski

Intro reminds me of 'Start me Up' by Rolling Stones

Lu Nunzi

Really the best solo project was and is Big Talk! It's the album I listen to everyday and I know al the lyrics. Brandon you should see a little bit your rocker side. Anyway, I love The Killers and miss them!

@robbelliii I always held Ronnie responsible for most of The Killers hits, as well as Mark, Mark written Jenny, Smile and Midnight Show, 3 of my top 5 killers tracks!

I liked more this than Flamingo but I like more the Killers than this...xD

Lee Williams

I highly doubt that considering how much Flamingo sounds like a Killers album (Not just because Brandon is singing either.) and Big Talk does not.
