Charted: 27
  • Don't touch the sleeping pills, they mess with my head
    Dredging the Great White Sharks, swimming in the bed
    And here comes a Killer Whale, to sing me to sleep
    Thrashing the covers off, it has me by it's teeth

    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
    I can't help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
    Did I drink too much?
    Am I losing touch?
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    To wreck, to wreck, to wreck
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    What's with the long face, do you want more?
    Thousands of red-eyed mice, scratching at the door
    Don't let the curtain catch you, cause you've been here before
    The chair is an island darling, you can't touch the floor

    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
    I can't help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
    Did I drink too much?
    Am I losing touch?
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    To wreck, to wreck, to wreck
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    And good God, under starry skies we are lost
    And into the breach we got tossed
    And the water's coming in fast

    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
    I can't help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
    And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
    Did I drink too much?
    Am I losing touch?
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    To wreck, to wreck, to wreck
    Did I build this ship to wreck?

    To wreck, to wreck, to wreck
    Did I build this ship to wreck? Writer/s: FLORENCE LEONTINE MARY WELCH, THOMAS EDWARD PERCY HULL
