Gary Numan – God Only Knows lyrics

I was waiting for something
I was listening to my breathing
Like a man listening to life

I was looking for fire
It could take me or leave me
It could all just burn away

The oxygen law
It remains me

Id been surrounded for hours
By the sound of thinking metal
And I knew something was wrong

I can tell you what fear is
It is the smell of burning
And Id been close once before

I waited a long time
How I survived God only knows
It seemed like forever
How I survived God only knows
I dont like the memory
How I survived God only knows
How I survived God only knows

I remember the feeling
Ill remember forever
How it all just came apart

I dont believe in praying
I dont believe in a god
Now I question everything

The dreamer is gone
Im an old man

I could tell you of horror
I could show you the pieces
But I just want to forget

Im not sure if I saw it
Im not sure if I heard it
I just screamed i cant get out
i cant get out
