"Hands Across The Ocean" as written by Wayne Hussey, Mick Brown and Craig David Adams....
Every time I think of you it's like the last beat of my heart
The memory of leaving you is tearing me apart
No waves, no tears, no backward glance
But I'll always hold you dear
Never regret but I'll never forget
'Cause there's not enough heaven here

Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water
Hands, across the ocean
Ocean

And every time I'm missing you I just can't let it show
And every time I want to cry, I just can't let it go
Wine and song and masquerade and refuge holds me dear
Ribbons and lace and daisy chains
But there's not enough heaven here

Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water, reaching out for you
Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water
Hands, across the ocean

Bangles, beads and lipstick games
And comfort holds me dear
Velvet and lace and perfumed sheets
But there's not enough heaven
Not enough heaven here

Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water, reaching out for you
Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water
Hands, across the ocean
Ocean
Ocean
Ocean

Hands across the ocean, reaching out for you
Across the waves, across the water
Hands, across the ocean

    General CommentI believe this song can have something to do with Andrew Eldritch since the term "Across the waves, across the water" is used in Marian - The Sisters of Mercy. There's also a possibility it's about this fictional character (?) Marian

    General CommentVery interesting take. I never thought of that -- Though this sounds more endearing, and I don't think Wayne would ever write anything but mockery about Eldritch (I think they should just get along). I was thinking along the lines of Edgar Allen Poe of water being a barrier between life and death. A song to a loved one who is still alive from someone who has gone to heaven...Kindof a sweet way of saying that he's in heaven, has all of these wonderful things, but he will always hold her dear because "there's not enough heaven here".
