By the Sea


By The Sea – Suede

She can walk out anytime, anytime she wants to walk out, that’s fine,
She can walk out anytime, anytime she feels that life has passed her by,
And when I start my new life I won’t touch the ground,
I’m gonna try hard this time not to touch the ground.

He can walk out anytime, anytime he wants to walk out, that’s fine,
He can walk out anytime, across the sand, into the sea, into the brine,
And when I start my new life I won’t touch the ground,
I1m gonna try hard this time not to touch the ground.

So we sold the car and quit the job
and shook some hands and wiped the make-up right off,
And we said our good-byes to the bank
left Seven Sisters for a room in a seaside shack,
And when I start my new life I won’t touch the ground,
I’m gonna try hard this time not to touch the ground?

…it’s by the sea we’ll breed
…into the sea we’ll bleed…

I’ve always been attracted to loss, to the remains. I like nostalgia, and the longing and sadness that comes with it. I also like that the theme of impending doom in this song. Give it a listen.
