Here comes the start of another day
I recognise its anthem as the silence slips away
Somewhere a distant radio (good morning!)
Then I remember all the things that I don't want to know
My Love
My Love

Somewhere a telephone is whispering
To where a world is listening at the the other end
Somewhere a butcher's eyes are waiting in the shadows
For when a friend will sell a friend
Oh My God!

This is the story of the day
I am the victim of the laughter in your lies
No one can ever hurt like you
I am alone now - I realise

But I wish this was some other day
I wish I still believed in truths
Then I would look into your eyes
And say . .

Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you
Looking for you . .

'Round 'round, up and down
What's that sound in the underground?
'Round 'round, up and down
What's that sound in the oh-oh-oh-oh

Here comes the end of another day
I recognise the blessed silence in the street
Now all the victims of your necessary laughter
Cover their heads and try to sleep

But I wish I still believed in truth
And I wish you still believed in me
Then I would look into your eyes
As you would into my eyes
And say . .

Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you now
Emeralds and Pearls have all gone looking for you
Looking for you . .

'Round 'round, up and down
'Round and 'round and up and down
What's that sound in the oh-oh-oh-oh
'Round 'round, up and down
'Round 'round, up and down

'Round 'round, up and down
What's that sound in the underground?
