Marillion – Enlightened lyrics

[viva brasil, viva vida]
Bound up in this energy ball again
Laughing and bouncin' off the magic
Rollin' under like a surfboard in a wave
Washin' me up... I want to do it again

Entwined in her arms
Spinning around and submarine beneath the deep of her
Climbing the forks of the lightning
Building a rod for my back it's all right, it's all right

Dreamin' a dream that only the sleepless know
Chilling the afternoon in "viva vida"
Watchin' the sun slide down the avenue
So real...

I feel...
Dizzy to fever with this love
The blues and the greys are waved away inside a day with her
Riding the forks of the lightning
Feeling the sparks along my back it's all right, it's all right

I thought I was born to take and to damage
But I'm giving and healing and feeling
Ultramarine and ultra-serene
Climbing the forks of the lightning
She told me today it'll be okay it's all right, it's all right

I'm a submarine in this ocean
