(words and music by Joe Jackson)

I don't love you

But I'm lost

Thinking of you

And the ghosts

Of so many special moments

That passed so quickly at the time

And now they come and track me down

And echo round and round and round

And time goes slowly

Or disappears completely

And I feel like I fade away

Like drowning

I don't need you

But it's so hard

To be without you

Though you're not far away

I censor my emotions

And tell myself to bide my time

But every time you come around

You batter my defences down

But so gently

Like some sweet hypnosis

And the world just slips away

I'm drowning

It's dark

My heart is pounding

I'm sinking down

Into a pool of passion

There's laughter as I drown

Like so many lost before me

Damned by lust and gone to hell

And then I look into your eyes

And something melts

I shake inside

And cool water

Washes me all over

Washes me away

And still I'm drowning
