"Show me, show me,
Show me how you do that trick"
"The one that makes me scream," she said
"The one that makes me laugh," she said
Feel her arms around my neck

"Show me how you do it
And I promise you
I promise that I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on a dizzy edge
Kissed her face and kissed her neck
And dreamed of all the different ways
I had to make her glow

"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Won't you ever know that I'm in love with you?
That I'm in love with you?"

You, you, soft and only
You, you, lost and lonely
You, you, strange as a dream
Dancing in the deepest ocean
Twisting in the water
Oh, just like a dream
Just like a dream

Daylight changes into shade
Must have been asleep for days
Moving lips, that breathe her name
I open up my eyes
And found myself alone, alone
Alone above the raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You, you, soft and only
You, you, lost and lonely
You, you, just like you and me

    General CommentThis song's been sitting on my playlist for a long time, and I noticed that the lyrics were missing on this site so I figured I'd do my best interpretation and put 'em up. It's actually a pretty decent song. I like how it starts off happy and ends up being a sad song. Kinda seems like how a lot of relationships end up. Anyway, hope these lyrics are helpful for the other 2 people out there who listen to the band.

    General Commenti find this song to be superficial and metaphorical

    i think its talking about a strictly sexual relationship and later finds out that they both are in love

    while they are still in love he finds out that she is dead and that he is still in love with her

    (it is reported that ones of roberts smith girlfriend did drown and die)

    THATS MY INTERPRETATION OF THE SONG. IM NOT HERE TO ARGUE JUST TO GIVE MY OPINION
