"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 head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"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 think it's cute how Taking Back Sunday did a cover of this song too.

    Gatsby's did it good. :).

    General CommentThis song, even though its not written by GAD, reminds me of Gatsby's obsession and love for Daisy in the Great Gatsby(reading the book turned me on to GAD, god I love that book).

    General CommentI forgot to mention in the afor comment that the biggest reminder of The Great Gatsby in this song is the line:

    "Alone above a raging sea
    That stole the only girl I loved
    And drowned her deep inside of me"

    I always thought as Tom, symbolizing the bay in between Gatsby and Daisy so, in that sense Tom was the ocean that "stole the only girl I ever loved"

    Also I envisioned Gatsby standing on a ledge stretching desperatlly, vainly towards Daisy, the green light, his aspirations. Sp the line "Spinning on that dizzy" and "why are so far she said".

    I know that GAD covered this song, but I just wanted to point out some similarities. And sorry to those who never read the book, and have no clue what Im talking about.

    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

    General Commenti agree with Atheist Punk. it's creepy how they didn't even write this song, yet as i was reading these lyrics, i kept thinking about The Great Gatsby. wierddd.
