I killed my love in the ocean, where it sank with the moon and the night
The lunar gravity motion pulled it up from the light in my eyes
That sudden lack of emotion was like a drug taken for the first time
I didn't guess that the comedown might go on for the rest of my life

She said
Oh, you kiss like a Russian
We sank so low between the moon and the ocean, oh

The further years I spent with women and ear-splitting noise trapped in American bars
Yeah we were friends until you asked me to spend the night with something but electric guitars

You said
Come on lets make good haste up to my favorite place
We'll watch the world spin round
Your kiss was soft and raw, but I felt nothing at all
So I loosened my grip, and I watched as you slipped from the waterfall

Oh, you kiss like a russian
We sank so low between the moon and the ocean, oh

And as I watched you fall the moon reflection recalled the love I killed that night
One-hundred feet below, a lunar undertow
Where I jumped and I dove through the moon, and the rocks, and the fish, and the stars

Oh, you kiss like a russian
We sank so low between the moon and the ocean, oh-oh-aww

    General CommentThis song is great...
    its about how he had this love but then he threw it away tries to feel nothing for her...and succeeds
    but then he sees the girl again and realizes she still wants to be with him and he tries but killed his feelings for her so effectively that he feels no love for so he has to let her go....
    its so lovely
