big black sea lyrics – gary numan

i left a rose at the bottom of the big black sea
for you
from me

i haven’t uttered a sound since you set me free
i wish i was you
and you felt like me

outside connection’s breaking down
internal wiring’s burning out

the clouds all think that i can’t see
this is for you
from me

she said: ‘tell me all your secrets, fantasies and fears;
let me see the polaroids of people you hold dear.’
trapped in tunnel vision, in monophonic sound
she says she loves you
she loves you
then it all falls down

echoes in the bedroom
rejection’s on the walls
translations of the letters:
forever’s not at all
trapped in tunnel vision
and monophonic sound
she loves you

she loves you
then it all falls down

outside connections are breaking down
internal wiring’s burning out
the clouds all think that i can’t see.
i wish i was you
instead of me

i left a rose at the bottom of the big black sea.
i did it for you.
from me.
i haven’t uttered a sound since you set me free
i wish i was you
and you felt like me

outside connection’s breaking down
all internal wiring’s burning out
i dive down towards the big black sea
this isn’t for you
this one’s for me

this time it’s all for me
and this time it’s all for me

(she loves you, she loves you then it all falls down)
