Wide Sargasso Sea

Album: In Your Dreams (2011)
  • In the beginning, she was stunning and pure
    When he first saw her, he fainted to the floor
    Floor, floor

    She was distant and arrogant from the start,
    She did not see the fragile state of his heart
    She fell in love with him, on that very day
    She became softer, in every way

    Even though they were so in love,
    She drew a line in the sand, just because
    They did not know each other, they did not trust
    The only thing that they did together, was to make love

    So paradise found was not paradise to him,
    Oh yes he loved her, but he was still an English man
    Tropical birds in the heat and the ocean,
    Oh, it drove him crazy, drove her away from him

    Even though they were so in love,
    They drew a line in the sand, just because
    They did not know each other, they did not trust
    The only thing that they did together, was to make love

    She burned his house down, saying you may have forgotten me,
    But you'll remember this, you fell to the ground when you saw this
    My face, my eyes, my lips,
    You may have forgotten me but you'll never forget that kiss

    Even though they were so in love,
    They drew a line in the sand, just because
    They did not know each other, they did not trust
    The only thing that they did together, was to make love

    When that big house burned down
    All around her, in the smoke and the fire,
    In the devastation, they never found her
    She went back into her her red dress
    Back to her white house
    To her ocean and after that no words were spoken
    About the two of them, ever again

    And even though they were so in love,
    They drew a line in the sand, just because
    They did not know each other, they did not trust
    The only thing that they did together, was to make love

    (In the beginning,
    She was stunning, and pure
    In the smoke and the fire,
    They never found her
    She went back into her ocean
    Back to her white house

    For a while they were so in love
    For a while they were so in love
    She burned his house down
    My face, my eyes, my lips
    May have forgotten them
    May have forgotten them
    May have forgotten them
    But you'll never forget that kiss) Writer/s: DAVE STEWART, STEPHANIE NICKS
