Deacon Blue – I Am Born lyrics

All the people in all the world
Will look for something that will keep it turning
Everyone's got to keep the will
Every boy every girl

I'm no different why the other day
I saw death like an ocean that could wash us away
The only comfort that I got was this
I once was unlovely and now I'm kissed

I am born
Aliver than the raging sea
Stranger than the strangest beasts
Than ever can be

After midnight and the night is black
You lie awake and the fear comes back
That your breath will stop
And this world will carry on

But I am born
Once there was nothing here
Not even the smell of fear
Nothing at all

Until you are born
Gasping out and in to open air
Taking hold of the atmosphere
And loving being born
