Life In Dark Water Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Oh, come away from the day, here I stay
Living on the bottom of the sea
Down metal snake, corridors, steely gray
Engines hum for nobody but me

No sound comes from the sea above me
No messages crackles through the radio leads
They'll never know, never, no, never
How strange life in dark water can be

Oh, mariners spare a thought when you pass
Those who live the submarine life
Far in the deep sonar eyes never sleep
Hiding like a shadow in the night

Jet planes nose through the clouds above me
They look for radar traces of me to see
They'll never know, never, no, never
How strange life in dark water can be

Wonder what the stars look like
Coming out tonight
Tell my girl she must be strong
She sits and waits all night long
Just looking for a better day
She'll have to find another way to go

No memory, tell me what's wrong with me
Why am I alone here with no rest
And now the name of the ship's not the same
How long has it been Marie Celeste?

Now there's nobody from the crew left
Five hundred years supply of food just for me
They'll never know, never, no, never
How strange life in dark water can be

They'll never know, never, no, never
How strange life in dark water can be
