You can try to avoid it, but love will sweep you away like an undertow.

UNDERTOW
words and music by Mary Lou Sudkamp and Rick Paul

It was painless really
Heard a lotta stories about it
But I didn’t think it could happen to me
So I wanna warn you
It can happen when you least expect it
It’’ll getcha, just you wait and see

Caught off guard
You don’t see it coming
You just get paralyzed
When you should be off and running
The current drags you in
Ooh, your heart goes in a spin
Caught in the undertow of love

I know what you’re thinking
You know all the signs and symptoms
And you know how to play the game so well
But you’re foolin’ yourself
Doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, friend
You’ll surrender, when you’re under its spell

Caught off guard
You don’t see it coming
You just get paralyzed
When you should be off and running
The current drags you in
Ooh, your heart goes in a spin
Caught in the undertow of love

You may think you can test the waters
Without goin’ in too far
But before you even know it
Oh, no

Caught off guard
You don’t see it coming
You just get paralyzed
When you should be off and running
The current drags you in
Ooh, your heart goes in a spin
Caught in the undertow of love

Caught in the undertow
Caught in the undertow of love
