“Underwater” is a song by singer-songwriter Mika, released as the album’s third single in France, and the second single in Europe from his third studio album,The Origin of Love.

Lyrics:

Bursting through a blood red sky
A slow landslide
and the world we leave behind
It’s enough to lose your head,
disappear and not return again…
When I fall to my feet
Wearin’ my heart on my sleeve
All I see just don’t make sense
You are the port of my call
You shot and leavin’ me raw
Now I know you’re amazing

‘Cause all I need
Is the love you breathe
put your lips on me
and I can live underwater,
underwater, underwater!
Underwater!

Flying through a bright blue sky
with a space boy high
from the world I leave behind
It’s enough to lose my head
disappear and not be seen again
When I fall to my feet
Wearin’ my heart on my sleeve
All I see just don’t make sense
You are the port of my call
You shot and leavin’ me raw
Now I know you’re amazing

‘Cause all I need
Is the love you breathe
Put your lips on me and
I can live underwater,
underwater, underwater!
Underwater!

Underwater underwater
I can live underwater
With your love I can breathe
I can breathe underwater

Underwater underwater
We could live underwater
With your love I can breathe
I can breathe underwater

Underwater underwater
We could live underwater
With your love we could breathe
We could breathe underwater

The single peaked at #12 in France. The single will not be released in the United Kingdom, and instead, the single’s artwork was adapted for the British equivalent single release, “Origin of Love”. The song was featured in a Swatch Scuba Libre Collection TV Commercial advert, becoming one of the most successful singles.
