"Drawn To The Rhythm" as written by and Sarah Ann Mclachlan....
When we wore a heart of stone we wandered to the sea
Hoping to find some comfort there yearning to feel free
And we were mesmerized by the lull of the night and the smells that filled the air
And we laid us down on sandy ground it was cold but we didn't care

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn into the rhythm of the sea

We fell asleep and began to dream when something broke the night
Memories stirred inside of us, the struggle and the fight
And we could feel the heat of a thousand voices telling us which way to go
And we cried out is there no escape from the words that plague me so

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn into the rhythm of the sea

In the still and the silent dawn another day is born
Washed up by the tireless waves the body bent and torn
When you wake in the face of the blinding sun, and you search only to find
That heaven is a stranger place than what you've left behind

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn into the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm

Drawn into the rhythm of the sea

    General CommentIn my head, theres a story in this song. Someone is on a beach in a dark dreamland. They're tormented by memories and voices they can't place. And in the morning they find their own body washed up on the shore and realize they're in their own kind of purgatory. I dunno, I like it. makes me want to write a book.

    General Commentfabulous song

    enjoy the new coat of paint for the lyrics I submitted

    I had to for compensation to the dumbass lyrics that were posted previous.....

    nice job, lazy-ass mothafuckin copy/paste loser.....

    concerning the second half of the third verse, some people argue that it's supposed to be "That heaven is a stranger place than WHAT I've left behind" as opposed to "than THE ONE I've left behind"

    This might very well be true, but I'm pretty sure I'm right

    but I absolutely know for a fact that it's not "I wake only to find" or "You wake only to find"

    it's "Awake only to find" with the 'You' understood and implied

    god, that pisses me off every time I get into an argument with someone about that one fucking line.....

    regardless, the song is cocain

    enjoy
