Pulling Punches - Lyrics by David Sylvian


Lyrics

If heaven watches over me
Sowing seeds back in the soil
With eyes that see, hands that feel
Why am i the last to know

Sheltered lives spent partially breathing
Are gathered together under new religion

Pulling punches, sleeping on our feet
Pulling punches, i needed someone to comfort me
Raised in summer days of splendour
Who would've dreamed of love never ending?

A better world lies in front of me
A sketch of life in the books i read
Then as i walk where heaven leads
Why am i the last to know?

Simple lives spent partially breathing
Are gathered together under new religion

Pulling punches, sleeping on our feet
Pulling punches, i needed someone to comfort me
Raised in summer days of splendour
Who would've dreamed of love never ending?

Nature feeds this nausea
Deep inside the heart of me
