Silver - Lyrics by Echo & The Bunnymen


Lyrics

Swung from a chandelier
My planet sweet on a silver salver
Bailed out my worst fears
'cause man has to be his own saviour
Blind sailors
Imprisoned jailers
God tame us
No one to blame us


The sky is blue
My hands untied
A world that's true
Through our clean eyes
Just look at you
With burning lips
You're living proof
At my fingertips


Walked on a tidal wave
Laughed in the face of a brand new day
Food for survival thought
Mapped out the place where i planned to stay


All the way
Well behaved
Just in case
It slips away


The sky is blue
My hands untied
A world that's true
Through our clean eyes
Just look at you
With burning lips
You're living proof
At my fingertips


La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la


The sky is blue
My hands untied
A world that's true
Through our clean eyes
Just look at you
With burning lips
You're living proof
At my fingertips
