lyrics
Although every building’s standing tall,
I look for you as something that much greater.
I searched through my religion, in the hope that something in it could entice.
Dreamed of crossing bridges, mountain ridges, from the Pole to the Equator,
But then I saw you skating by – I was underneath the ice.

Underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.

I woke up staring at the sun,
I searched for you in every hidden angle.
Through my imagination, every face and place, every memory inside,
High above the clouds they say there are galaxies and other destinations...
And then I saw you skating by - but I was underneath the ice.

Underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.

Today I dreamed another dream,
Predestined to come and save me later,
Today I dreamed another dream that you would come to take me home,
Underneath the ice.
Was underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.
I was underneath the ice.
Underneath the ice.
