QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE lyrics - I Sat By The Ocean

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
"I Sat By The Ocean"

I sat by the ocean
And drank a potion, baby, to erase you
Face down in the boulevard, yet I couldn't face you
There ain't no use in crying
It doesn't change anything, so baby, what good does it do?
Your friends they all sympathize, maybe I don't need them to

Imagine I'd be your one and only
Instead I'm the lonely one

You, me
And a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night

There's nowhere to run away
Said, "Boy if you want love, you'll have to go
And find it with someone new"
"Do you know who you really are, are you sure it's really you?"
Lies are a funny thing
They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you
Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view

Imagine I'd be your one and only
Instead I'm the lonely one

You, me
And a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night

You, me
And a lie
Silence is closer
We're passing ships in the night

Into the light
Left with nowhere to hide

Closer and closer
We're crashing ships in the night
