  • Save me from drowning in the sea
    Beat me up on the beach
    What a lovely holiday, there's nothing funny left to say

    This sombre song would drain the sun
    But it won't shine until it's sung
    No water running in the stream, the saddest place we've ever seen

    Everything I touched was golden
    Everything I loved got broken
    On the raod to Mandalay

    Every mistake I've ever made
    Has been rehashed and then replayed
    As I got lost along the way

    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom badom

    There's nothing left for you to give
    The truth is all that you're left with
    Twenty paces then at dawn, we will die and be reborn

    I like to sleep beneath the trees
    Have the universe at one with me
    Look down the barrel of a gun and feel the moon replace the sun

    Everything we've ever stolen
    Has been lost, returned or broken
    No more dragons left to slay

    Every mistake I've ever made
    Has been rehashed and then replayed
    As I got lost along the way

    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    Bom badom

    Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
    ba da da da da dup bom bom
    ba da da da da dup bom bom
    Bom badom

    Save me from drowning in the sea
    Beat me up on the beach
    What a lovely holiday, there's nothing funny left to say Writer/s: GUY CHAMBERS, ROBERT PETER WILLIAMS
