Sister Surprise
Gary
Numan

 

We are
Walking nostalgia
Like old movies for real
Look at me, look at you
Look at them, look at us

I'm young
Sell a slim body to the man next door
Sell a slim body to the man next door
Like my sister surprise

(Album - 'We'll wait for you')

(Single)
Only Gods walk on water
So I'll just Sink or swim with you
Let my heart slip away from me
Only Gods walk on water
And you're slowly pulling me down
Let this heart slip away

We are
The pleaure creation
Gone wrong
Gone wrong

We are
Walking ghost stories
No religion, no relief
No old wisdom, no belief
Sometimes I could scream
