lyrics

I can't look at you with eyes that don't idolise you
But I can look away
And slip back into the crowd, and never stop to turn around
Never see you again

I've been trying different drugs lately
To keep my head above water
I do better when I'm not on love
Though you could have been my dearest friend
It seems you will be just one of
Seven billion people I will never know

One night at church I saw a face which brought my faith to life again
Showed the truth to the rumours
That the sea has many fish and even coelacanths exist
But the land is my home now

I've been trying different drugs lately
To keep my head above water
I do better when I'm not on love
Though he might become my dearest friend
I bet he will be just one of
Seven billion people I will never know

No matter what I try
No matter how I fight
No matter how I kick splash and scream
I'll only go down

It's not that hard to stay afloat when you throw the prophet off the boat
And relinquish the false hope
It's funny now to realise I don't have to compromise on
Anything else to move on

And I can look at you with eyes that don't idolise you
Yes I can look at you with eyes that see things that are wrong with you
But I won't look away
I won't turn away
I won't walk away just yet
Just yet
