jackie lyrics – placebo


jackie left on a cold, dark night
telling me he’d be home,
he sailed the sea for a hundred years
and left me all alone.

now i’ve been dead for twenty years
i’ve been washing the sand
with my ghostly tears
searching the sh-r-s for my
jackie oooh.

and i remember the day
that the young man came
said your jackie’s gone
he’s lost in the rain
and i ran to the beach
(laid me down)

you’re all wrong, i said
as they stared to the sand,
that man knows the sea
like the back of his hand,
he’ll be back sometime
laughing at you.

i’ve been waiting all this time,
for my man to come
take his hand in mine
and lead me away to unseen sh-r-s.

i’ve been washing the sand
with my salty tears
searching the sh-r-s these long years
and i walked the sea forevermore
till i find my jackie oooh,

jackie oooh,
jackie oooh,
jackie ooo-oo-ooh.
