Frightened Rabbit Floating In The Forth Lyrics

So you just stepped out

of the front of my house

and I’ll never see you again.

I closed my eyes for a second

and when they opened

you weren’t there.

And the door shut shut

I was vacuum packed,

shrink-wrapped out of air

And the spine collapsed

and the eyes rolled back

to stare at my starving brain,

And fully clothed, I float away

(I’ll float away)

Down the Forth, into the sea

I think I’ll save suicide for another day.

And I picture this corpse

on the M8 hearse

and I half run away to sleep

On a rolled up coat

against the window

with the strobe of the sun

and the life I’ve led

am I ready to leap

is there peace beneath

the roar of the Forth road bridge?

On the Northern side

there’s a Fife of mine

and a boat in the port for me,

And fully clothed, I float away

(I’ll float away)

Down the Forth, into the sea

I’ll steer myself

through drunken waves

these manic gulls

scream it’s okay

take your life

give it a shake

gather up

all your loose change

I think I’ll save suicide for another year.
