LAURIE ANDERSON lyrics - Freefall

LAURIE ANDERSON
"Freefall"

You're out on the ocean
And you get pulled down
Freefall to the bottom
Like when you're drowning
Or falling asleep

You get turned around
And when you think you're
Swimming to the surface
You're swimming straight down.
Down to the bottom.
All the way to the bottom.

Secret codes and cryptograms
I'm lost in your words
I'm swimming.

We're going down to the bottom
All the way to the bottom
Rapture of the deep.

I got your letter.
I couldn't read it.
It was a cryptogram.
Did it sasay take me with you
Or take me as I am?

We're going down to the bottom
All the way to the bottom.
We get turned around.

There is another world
Spinning inside of this one.
I remember where I came from
There were tropical breezes
And a wide open sea
I remember my childhood
I remember being free.

We're going down to the bottom
All the way to the bottom
We get turned around

There is another world
Inside of this one.
Rapture of the deep.

We're going down to the bottom
There is another world
Spinning inside of this one.
