the sea lyrics – corinne bailey rae

“the sea”

[verse 1:]
i never knew you were standing on the sh*r*,
it says everything,
explains everything.
that from then on it couldn’t be just like before,
it says everything,
changes everything.
so don’t you stand there wishing your life would fade away
and don’t you go round with anyone who makes you feel ashamed.

[chorus:]
goodbye paradise,
i hope there’s something you could try
goodbye
you’re so changed that you’d give it all away
goodbye,
goodbye

[verse 2:]
i saw your face in the faded light,
said everything,
explained everything.
it haunts all your days and it comes to you at night,
you did everything,
blame anything.
but don’t you cut those ribbons to take away the pain
and don’t you go round with that same old crowd,
they make you feel ashamed

[chorus:]
goodbye paradise,
i hope there’s something you could try
goodbye
you’re so changed that you’d give it all away
goodbye,
goodbye paradise

the sea,
the majestic sea,
breaks everything,
crushes everything,
cleans everything,
takes everything
from me
