  • Lover I remember
    Laying out a map
    Throwing our possessions
    In the van

    Your tapes piled on the backseat
    And a camera in your hand
    Dressed for our arrival
    In the Strangeland

    Strangeland blind
    You got no reason, you got no rhyme
    You get no time
    To put things right
    To put things right

    You drove across the border
    As the winter rains ran dry
    And only fateful birdsong
    Filled the sky

    You threw your head back screaming
    As we raced across wet sand
    And lept into the waters
    Of the Strangeland

    Strangeland blind
    You got no reason, you got no rhyme
    You get no time
    To put things right
    To put things right

    You wound the rope around me
    And you pulled the knots in tight
    And shook me like a bad dream
    From your sight

    And now the things I've done to forget you
    Well it's not what I had planned
    The sweetest thoughts get twisted
    In the Strangeland

    Strangeland blind
    You got no reason, you got no rhyme
    You gave time to put things right
    To put things

    Strangeland dreams
    You tore my baby away from me
    We get no time
    To put things right
    To put things right

    You give no time
    To put things right
    To put things right
    To put things right
    To put things right Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
