Frightened Rabbit – Floating On The Forth lyrics
[Verse 1]
So you just stepped out of the front of my house and I'll never see you again.
I closed my eyes for a second and when they opened you weren't there.
And the door shut shut I was vacuum-packed, shrink-wrapped out of air
And the spine collapsed and the eyes rolled back to stare at my starving brain,

[Chorus 1]
And fully clothed, I float away (I'll float away)
Down the Forth, into the sea
I think I'll save suicide for another day.

[Verse 2]
And I picture this corpse on the M8 hearse and I half run away to sleep
On a rolled up coat against the window with the strobe of the sun and the life I've led
Am I ready to leap is there peace beneath the roar of the Forth Road Bridge?
On the Northern side there's a Fife of mine and a boat in the port for me,

[Chorus 2]
And fully clothed, I float away (I'll float away)
Down the Forth, into the sea
I'll steer myself through choppy waves
These manic gulls scream it's okay
Take your life give it a shake
Gather up all your loose change
I think I'll save suicide for another year.

[Outro]
Ah-ah a-a-ah a-a-ah ah-ah a-a-ah a-a-ah ah-ah a-a-ah
