Stephen Bishop – Tip Of The Iceberg lyrics

Song Title: Tip of the Iceberg
Artist: Stephen Bishop
Album: Bowling in Paris (1989)
Composers: Bishop/Kipner/Spiro

I was looking for my briefcase
When I saw your pictures on the table
There was one I'd never seen before
You were talking to him

That was the tip of the iceberg
The look that did you in
I should have seen it coming
The beginning of the end
Lying just below the surface
I couldn't see it then
Now I do
Looking at this picture of you

It was cold in my apartment
There were no more words left to say
I heard you whisper to your phone call
When your eyes turned away

That was the tip of the iceberg
The look that did you in
I should have seen it coming
The beginning of the end
Lying just below the surface
I couldn't see it then
Now I do
Looking at this picture of you

I saw the tip of the iceberg
The shape of things to come
Living without motion
Melting in the sun
I saw love without a reason
Lying with someone I never knew, ohh

I was never in love before
I was only mistaken
My heart can't give anymore
It's only breakin', breakin'
I saw the tip of the iceberg...

I saw love without a reason
Holding someone I never knew

I saw was the tip of the iceberg
The look that did you in
I should have seen it coming
The beginning of the end
Lying just below the surface
I couldn't see it then
Now I do
Looking at this picture of you

I saw was the tip of the iceberg
The look that did you in
I should have seen it coming
The beginning of the end
Lying just below the surface
I couldn't see it then
Now I do
Looking at this picture of you

(repeat with ad-lib to fade)
