40' Lyrics

by Franz Ferdinand

As I glanced once upon the foam
40 feet beneath my feet
The coldest calm falls through the molten veins
Cooling all the blood to slush, congeals around again

Oh, la la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
Oh, and forty feet remain

Salt scales upon my drying arms
Burn my back beneath the sun
But I am cold beneath the burning rays
Looking down, looking down, down, down again

Oh, la la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
Oh, and forty feet remain

La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
La la lala, la la lala, la la lala, la lala la
Oh, and forty feet remain
