Faces in the sand
Let me take you by the hand
Where do you come from
Not a strange and secret land
Dark and scary eyes
And you feel you're always this way
Take me by the hand
Let me show you games we can play

Take me by surprise
Hide nothing from the shadows
We can kiss the sky
Never say goodbye
As we chase the clouds away

Pictures in the air
Would you let me take you there
Hold me, I will fall
And I'll show you how much I care
Paint your silver smile
Show you things that won't be sad
Let me take you there
And I'll show you what fun can be

Take me by surprise
Hide nothing from the shadows
We can kiss the sky
Never say goodbye
As we chase the clouds away

Faces in the sand
Let me take you by the hand
Where do you come from
Not a strange and secret land
Dark and scary eyes
And you feel you're always this way
Take me by the hand
Let me show you games we can play

    My Interpretationfaces in the sand
    let me take you by the hand
    where do you come from
    from a strange and secret land

    dark and scary eyes
    and i you feel you were always this way
    take me by the hand
    let me show you the games we can play

    take you by surprise
    hide nothing from the shadows
    we can kiss the sky
    never say goodbye
    as we chase the clouds away

    pictures in the air
    would you let me take you there
    hold me i will fall
    i will show you how much i care

    paint your silver smile
    show me things i want to see
    let me take you there
    i will show you what fun can be

    General CommentBut I think they're interpreted wrong at the beginning, I'm pretty sure it's:
    Faces in the sand
    Let me take you by the hand
    Where do you come from
    From a strange and secret land
    Dark and scary eyes
    And you feel your always this way
    Take me by the hand
    Let me show you games we can play

    General CommentMy favorite MBV song before loveless came out. Very simple & clean sounding. Another asian guitar motif, which I'm sure makes some MBV purists cringe. The back and forth vocals between Kevin and Bilinda were amazing. Still is. NEVER move on from greatness.
