"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw 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 that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her neck
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make you mine
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you?
That I'm in love with you?"

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream...

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone
Alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven

    General CommentI cannot believe that nobody has posted anything for this song! This and 3,720 to 1 are my favorite Benjamins songs. This song just has such an awesome guitar line. It's so catchy. And the lyrics. They're very...heaven-ish. If I can even use that in a sentence. The first two verses of this song always make me want to run out and desperately look for the person I'm supposed to be with.
    You can almost feel her throwing her arms around your neck.

    General Commentwell, yes, this is one of the best songs of all time, true. but that's because it's a cure song. i happen to like the cover though.

    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

    JUST GIVE ME FEEDBACK ON WHAT YOU THINK OF MY OPINION
