Sit down, my love of open spaces
And breathe, my love, it's all been spent
I'm going to tell you both a story
About some memories that I dreamt
See, I've lost love in many places
Not least the streets of Sao Paulo
And friends especially, I didn't make them
A ten floor window to her home
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
But I don't
So hush the shadows in the oak tree
Be still, curl you on the moor
My heart has fallen by the wayside
I cannot claim her anymore
So don your duffel coats quite slowly
And this start to reset, adjourn
While on the streets of old Sao Paulo
I watch my baby being burned
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
But I don't
Sometimes I could cry, die inside
Drop my bags and run for miles
And sometimes I could live my life
But I wont, but I won't
Have you ever been thrown across the water?
Have you ever been thrown across the water?
Have you ever been thrown across the water
Till there's no skin left on your bones?
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Get me a doctor, get me a doctor
Who will get rid of my bones
Or get me a lover, get me a lover
Who will leave my head alone
Get me a soldier, get me a soldier
Who will fight me pointless war
Get me an exit, I need an exit
I need a window or a door
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Ay, get me a lawyer, get me a lawyer
Who will sue the world for me
Get me a person, get me a person
Get me a person who isn't me
'Cause I'm getting tired, I'm getting tired
Of my stupid little face
I don't belong here, don't belong here
Don't belong in this horse race
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water like a stone
