  • Slow motion, slow motion
    Getting rid of the albatross
    Sowing the seeds of discontent
    I know you very well, you are unbearable
    I've seen you up far too close
    Getting rid of the albatross

    Frying rear blinds
    If I wanted
    Should I really
    If I run away, run away

    Riding along on the crest of the wave
    Getting rid of the albatross
    Another will not forget
    I know you very well

    Run away, run away
    Should I
    I run away
    Getting rid of the albatross
    I know you very well, you are unbearable
    I see you far too close
    If I wanted to, if
    Run away, run away
    I ran away, I ran away Writer/s: DANIEL SMITH
