(feat. Alex)

(The Sisters of Mercy)

In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt
In this cruel place your voice above the maelstrom
In the wake of this ship of fools I'm falling further down
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home.....

I hear you calling Marian
Across the water
Across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the grave...

Marian
Marian

There's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep, breathe long and hard
To take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further beneath the fatal wave
Marian I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me

I hear you calling Marian
Across the water
Across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the grave...

Marian
Marian
Marian
