Pet Shop Boys – Between Two Islands lyrics

We sailed in a fishing-boat
Between these two shores
The Island of Lovers
And the Island of Whores

You at the helm getting
Soaked to the skin
Taking me to places
I'd never been

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

In different locations
Taken by surprise
I woke up one morning
And looked in your eyes

What were you thinking?
I never knew
You were the captain
I was the crew

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

Catching my eye
I wonder what you saw?
A not quite unrequited lover
Or just another whore?

Safe in our life-jackets
Salvaged from the sea...
Now I'm drowning
Won't you rescue me?

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

"I want you
And I want you to want me, baby
I want you
And I want you to want me too
I want you
And I want you to want me, baby
I want you
And I want you to want me too
The way that I want you"
