  • In an ocean of noise
    I first heard your voice
    Ringing like a bell
    As if I had a choice
    Oh well!

    Left in the morning
    While you were fast asleep
    Into an ocean of violence
    A world of empty streets

    You've got your reasons
    And, me - I've got mine
    But all the reasons I gave
    Were just lies to buy myself some time

    In an ocean of noise
    I first heard your voice
    Now who here among us
    Still believes in choice?
    Not I!

    No way of knowing
    What any man will do
    An ocean of violence
    Between me and you

    You've got your reasons
    And, me - I've got mine
    But all the reasons I gave
    Were just lies to buy myself some time

    I'm gonna work it out
    'Cause time won't work it out
    I'm gonna work it out
    'Cause time won't work it our for you
    I'm gonna work it on out
    'Cause time won't work it our for you
    I'm gonna work it on out
    'Cause time won't work it our for you
    I'm gonna work it on out Writer/s: Jeremy Gara, Regine Chassagne, Richard R Parry, Tim Kingsbury, William Butler, Win Butler
