Echo & The Bunnymen – The Flickering Wall lyrics

In my world in my little world
Life lies upon the floor
The wind blows in and out again
Through windows and through doors
And it's there I'll look and it's there I'll find
What it was I started after
When I mistook what I had in mind
For something made to matter


I heard the footsteps in the street
I saw the lights on the flickering wall
I moved my lips but I couldn't speak
Choked on the wonder of it all
Choked on the wonder of it all


In my dreams recurring dreams
But I was never there
Life is still so invisible
Just needing to be where
With any luck I might just find
What it was I started after
When I undertook what I had in mind
When everything mattered


When I saw the gods up in the sky
I saw the lights on the flickering wall
I saw the world through hazel eyes
And choked on the wonder of it all
Choked on the wonder of it all


I heard the footsteps in the street
I saw the lights on the flickering wall
I moved my lips but I couldn't speak
Choked on the wonder of it all


When I saw the gods up in the sky
I saw the lights on the flickering wall
I saw the world through hazel eyes
And choked on the wonder of it all
Choked on the wonder of it all
Choked on the wonder
Choked on the wonder
Choked on the wonder of it all
