  • Set adrift on memory bliss of you

    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you

    The camera pans the cocktail glass
    Behind a blind of plastic plants
    I found the lady with the fat diamond ring
    Then you know I can't remember a damn thing

    I think it's one of those de ja vu things
    Or a dream that's tryin' to tell me something
    Or will I ever stop thinkin' about it
    I don't know, I doubt it

    Subterranean by design
    I wonder what I would find if I met you
    Let my eyes caress you
    Until I meet the thought of Missess Princess Who?

    Often wonder what makes her work
    I guess I'll leave that question to the experts
    Assuming that there are some out there
    They're probably alone, solitaire

    I can remember when
    I caught up with a pastime intimate friend
    She said, "Bet you're probably gonna say I look lovely
    But you probably don't think nothin' of me"

    She was right, though, I can't lie
    She's just one of those corners in my mind
    So I just put her right back with the rest
    That's the way it goes, I guess

    Baby, you send me
    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you
    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you

    Careless whisper from a careless man
    A neutron dance for a neutron fan
    Marionette strings are dangerous things
    I thought of all the trouble they bring

    An eye for an eye, a spy for a spy
    Rubber bands expand in a frustrating sigh
    Tell me that she's not dreaming
    She's got an ace in the hole

    It doesn't have meaning
    Reality used to be a friend of mine
    'Cause complete control, I don't take too kind
    Christina Applegate, you gotta put me on

    Guess who's piece of the cake is Jack gone?
    She broke her wishbone and wished for a sign
    I told her whispers in my heart were fine
    What did she think she could do?

    I feel for her, I really do
    So I stared at the ring finger on her hand
    I wanted her to be a big PM Dawn fan
    But I had to put her right back with the rest
    That's the way it goes, I guess

    Baby, you send me
    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you
    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you

    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you
    Baby, you send me
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you

    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you (baby, you send me)

    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you (baby, you send me)

    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Baby, you send me (baby, you send me)
    Set adrift on memory bliss of you Writer/s: ATTRELL CORDES, ATTRELL STEPHEN CORDES, GARY JAMES KEMP, GARY KEMP
