Belle and Sebastian – Sea Of Sorrow Lyrics

Sea Of Sorrow Lyrics – Belle and Sebastian

When I see the faraway smiling faces
When I feel the subtle pull of your graces
When the sun is falling on magic places
You’re giving me hints of ecstasy

Every other day I’m frozen with worry
Looking for a way to shed my own body
But I know it’s just like a jacket
A layer of skin

Though we wreck ourselves
On the rocks that never even existed
We just keep on going with the hate
We’re gonna have to resist it

Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading for a world of promise
Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading for a world of promise

Every other day I’m thinking about you
Praying and beseeching you like a guru
Heaven will protect and hold you in bliss
I’m convinced of this
You are all things to all people

Words can be a vicious vessel of torment
Words can be the simple comfort of moments
Sending you the honest words that I’m storing
Will stay with you in the night, in the morning

Though we wreck ourselves
On the rocks that never even existed
We just keep on going with the hate
We’re gonna have to resist it

Swimming in a sea of comfort
Heading for a sea of sorrow
Swimming in a sea of comfort
Heading for a sea of sorrow

Though we wreck ourselves
On the rocks that never even existed
We just keep on going with the hate
We’re gonna have to resist it

Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading for a world of promise
Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading for a world of promise

Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading for a world of comfort
Swimming in a sea of sorrow
Heading to a world of comfort
