"Sailing On The Seven Seas" as written by and Stuart Kershaw Andrew Mc Cluskey....
You say that love will capture me
But not unless you give it free
We're sailing on the seven seas
Sister Ray is on TV
The light of love that shines so bright
That the F.B.I won't sleep tonight

Because I'm so in awe of you
That I don't know what to do
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue

Sick and tired and I don't know why
Skin and bone won't touch the sky
Sex and lies can't bring me down
Because I've sold my soul all over town

Because I'm so in awe of you
That I don't know what to do
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue

People try and drag us down
So we learn to swim before we drown

Because I'm so in awe of you
That I don't know what to do
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue

And I¡¯m so in awe of you
That I don't know what to do
And I'm sailing on
The seven seas so blue

    General CommentThis was the song that got me into OMD. I was 9 at the time and just getting into real music properly.

    I find the lyrics of this song quite intriguing. It sounds to me like he's involved with a girl who's very deviant, possibly criminal, and he knows the relationship is bad for him yet he doesn't want to leave her because he's totally in awe of the girl (note in awe rather than in love, he idolises her rather than being in love with her). So he's allowed himself to become caught up in this risky situation even though he knows it's bad for him. Possibly she may be a prostitute or just some kind of criminal, though I wonder if Andy wrote the lyrics with anyone particular in mind.
