Out Of This World

Album: Afraid Of Sunlight (1995)
Play Video
  • Three hundred miles an hour on water
    In your purpose-built machine
    No one dared to call a boat
    Screaming blue
    Out of this world
    Make history
    This is your day
    Blue Bird

    At such speeds, things fly

    What did she say?
    I know the pain of too much tenderness
    Wondering when or if you'll come back again
    Wanting to live for you
    And being banned from giving

    But only love will turn you around
    Only love will turn you around
    Only love
    Only love will turn you around

    So we live you and I
    Either side of the edge
    And we run and we scream
    With the dilated stare
    Of obsession and dreaming
    What the hell do we want
    Is it only to go
    Where nobody has gone
    A better way than the herd
    Sing a different song
    Till you're running the ledge
    To the gasp from the crowd
    Spinning round in your head
