We sit in silence
A marriage license
Is all you know
All you know, all you know

We sit and chew gum
Watch television
And you know
And you know, and you know

But there's oceans between us
Light years that screen us
Oceans that drift away
Oceans that fade to grey

We sit and rot here
Resenting each year
Will you go
Will you go, will you go?

We sing the old songs
The beat box plays on
And you know
And you know, and you know

But there's oceans between us
Light years that screen us
Like oceans we drift away
[Like] oceans we fade to grey

Between us there's oceans
There's life in slow motion
Quietly we drift away
Quietly we fade to grey


Written by Suede
