Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Sailing On The Seven Seas lyrics

You say that love will capture me
Not unless you give it free.
You're sailing on the seven seas
Sister Rae is on TV.
The light above, it shines so bright
That the F.B.I. won't sleep tonight
'Cause I'm so in awe of you
That I don't know what to do
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue.
Sick and tired, I don't know why
Skin and bones, touch the sky
Sex and lies, can't bring me down
'Cause I sold my soul
All over town.

People try to drag us down
So we learn to swim before we drown.
