"The Secret of Drowning" as written by and Dave Stewart Brian Peter Eno....
I know the secret of drowning
Is to stay calm and not panic
I know the secret of losing
Is to let go before you get lost
I know the freedom of falling
Without the parachute of 'if'
I know to suck the air in
And dive off the edge of the cliff

I know the secret of drowning
Is to stay calm and not panic
I know the secret of losing
Is to let go before you get lost
I know the freedom of falling
Without the parachute of 'if'
I know to suck the air in
And dive off the edge of the cliff


(When you ask me to come
I can't come quickly enough
When you hold out your hand…)

One two kiss you
Three four
I lost my heart
In the black light of a bar
Five six seven
It burns inside
Close my eyes
I'm right there where you are
Eight nine ten
I lose you again
Memories made in a heartbeat stay
Like cigarette burns in the carpet

When you hold out your hand
I want to.
