Commentary

From Mark’s track by track guide to Undertow:

The phone rings downstairs in the kitchen and as he rises to answer it she bursts through the front door and rushes down the hallway to pick up. She beats him to it. He stands on the landing at the top of the stairwell, listening as she speaks of him.. unaware that he’s listening.

 

Lyrics

Some people talk
You know they can’t hold back
And you weren’t there in the room at the time
I heard through a door, a conversation
Heard your voice, heard a name
And it was mine

And the picture that you painted
Was black and white
There was no shining light or shades of grey
You made me sound like I was a stranger
Should of turned, closed the door
And walked away

Do you dream of a place
That’s safe and warm
When your enemies have all gone?
Vanity has been lifted
It’s time to burn your little bridges and move on

Sometimes you have to walk
You know you can’t look back
No matter how much you’d love to pick and choose
Every action that you take
It speaks louder
Than a friend you used to trust
She’s a lot to lose

Do you dream of a place
That is safe and warm
When your enemies have all gone?
Vanity has been lifted
It’s time to burn your little bridges
And move on

Do you take great comfort in believing
All the things you think I am
That you are not?
Does it put safe distance between us?
Was it something that I said that I forgot?

Do you dream of a place
That is safe and warm
When your enemies have all gone?
Vanity has been lifted
It’s time to burn your little bridges
And move on

Vanity has been lifted
It’s time to burn your little bridges
And move on
