The Futureheads – Back To The Sea lyrics

Did you stop to think, when we moved by the sea?
When the seasons changed.
(When the seasons changed),
They changed for a reason,
I'm not talking lightly, I don't need to set the scene.
We're living in it.
(We're living in it),
It's in everything we see.

[Chorus:]

I won't go back to the sea,
Whatever's pulling you isn't pulling me,
I won't go back to the sea.

Did you really think, that this is what we need?
Well I'm dragging my feet.
(Avoiding sleep),
Trying to make you see,
It's reached the situation where it's the job or me,
It's the job or me.

If you're asking me, then the job is part of me.

[Chorus:]

I won't go back to the sea,
Whatever's pulling you isn't pulling me,
I won't go back to the sea.

It's not what you put in,
But what you take away,
The least you're counting on (ahhhh!)
Now that you're counting down the days,
You've taken opportunities (ahhhh!)
Received nothing in return,
This place that you call paradise (ahhhh!)
Will teach you a lesson you deserve.

[Chorus:]

I won't go back to the sea,
Whatever's pulling you isn't pulling me,
I won't go back to the sea.

I won't go back to the sea,
Whatever's pulling you isn't pulling me,
I won't go back to the sea.
