Smashing Pumpkins – Oceania lyrics

No one can love you
'Cause no one can free you
Lovers can't touch you
'Cause lovers might reach you, yeah

I'm so alone, so alone
But better than a wretched world
Better than a broken pearl
I'm so alone, so alone
But better than I ever was
Better than a just laid cause

Night may keep you sworn
May bring you stones
Just to touch
The journey's rest
The warning circumstance
The dreams I had
The dreams I had
And still she's gone
And still she's gone

Life may keep the best
[Vocation] best
The dreams I had
The dreams I had
Oh, would I follow you
How could I have ever doubted you
Sweet baby, nurture me
Sweet lady, if you please
Try to wait on me
Try to [weigh] on me
Try to wait on me
Just try to wait on me

Try to wait
Walk the cliffs of your rock nation
Find the fate of me
My mistake
As the last remaining soldier
Wars take the place of you

Lover wait
Lover wait in love
Try to wait
Cast off your indecision
Face to face
We breathe

Try to wait
Cast off your indecision
Face to face
We breathe
