There's a shark shaped fin
In the water of my dreams
An alligator screams from the depths there
I'd swim with you there
I'd swim with you there, yeah yeah

In the house that I use
There's a psycho on the loose
He's playing with the fuse of a bomb there
I could live with you there
I could live with you there

Bye bye long day
I need to sleep so much
You shine on me
Too much is not enough

On the sheets and pillow case
In my bed for heaven's sake
The devil's dancing until late in my head there
But I could sleep with you there
I could sleep with you there

Always
Always

Bye bye long day I need to sleep so much
Nineteen hours straight
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough

Too much is not enough
Undivide your love
Undivide your love

    General CommentAgree with all above. CW is one of the most under-rated bands ever. Their songs are truly magical and this is one of the best.

    I always took this song to mean that all he can do is think about this person he loves but can't have. Even in the worst of nightmares, he'd still be there with her...just to be with her. But basically it's consuming his life and he needs to just sleep and get her out of his mind...but he just can't.

    Yep...I think it's kind of a tribute to Robert Fripp as well.

    General Commentwhat, no catherine wheel fans on songmeanings? really?

    that sucks. this song is so incredibly beautiful, and probably the only song that's easily translated into "i love you" that i can stand.

    General CommentI agree with you ! CW is so unknown, you can't find it anywhere on torrents ! Alternative music fans are missing something here...

    General CommentI agree, this song especially is beauty. The way the guitars and bass interweave with the light precussion and feedback is amazing to me. Great Band, great song. Lyrically, im pretty sure this is related to Robert Fripp, an amazing guitar player for king crimson.

    General CommentIn my opinion,this song is about being in love with someone who is unstable or schitzo...But even though the relationship is dangerous,and possibly hurtful,the lyricist is willing to commit to that person anyway...

    General CommentI heard this as written about Robert Fripp, not a woman. It reminds me of Frank Black's "I Heard Ramona Sing." It could just as easily be referential in nature though.

    General CommentUh guys it's about Robert Fripp, and how Fripp's music gives what's-his-name (the guy who write the song) comfort in dire times. It's filled with guitar playing in Fripp's style (sustained, compressed notes etc.)

    This isn't brain surgery.
