Commentary

From Mark’s track by track guide to Undertow:

The Cuckold who goes quietly. A lover’s car seen in someone else’s driveway.. events are moving beyond his control… humiliation and the courage to face it

 

Lyrics

Was that your car in the driveway
Of the half house down the end of the road
Did I catch you at a bad time
On the edge of a scandal fit to explode?

Should I speak of half a lifetime
Golden years slipped away so easily
Dogs are barking in the twilight
Fog is rising down by the creek

Sometimes I wonder if I know too much about you
Sometimes I wonder if I know you at all

Was that your face at the window?
Were you keeping your options in the air?
One thing leads on to another
Looking down into a dead end road

Sometimes I wonder if I know too much about you
Sometimes I wonder if I know you at all

Is it too late to laugh?
Is it too late to cry
For the simple joy
Should I watch it die?

Should I hold my tongue
Should I comfort you?
Is there one thing left
We forgot to do?

Sometimes I wonder if I know too much about you
Sometimes I wonder if I know you at all

Sometimes I wonder if I know too much about you
Sometimes I wonder if I know you at all

You at all
If I know you at all
If I know
If I know you at all
