Marillion — Dry Land lyrics

(Music: Hogarth / Woore Lyrics: Steve Hogarth)

In all the time that I've known you
You've been so edgy and nervous
I never wanted to own you

I was aware of the danger
Of making a bid for your favours
You're such a natural stranger
I made excuses and ran

You're an island
But I can't leave you all out at sea
You're so violent with your silence
You're an island
I can't sleep
Won't you speak to me
I'm on dry land
Won't you help me please

In all the time that I've known you
There has been something between us
I don't think it's my imagination

I felt like I couldn't touch you
But I had the feeling you'd love to
Tell me the truth if you could do
I made excuses and ran

You're an island
But I can't leave you all out at sea
You're so violent with your silence
You're an island I can't sleep
Won't you speak to me
I'm on dry land
Won't you help me please

You're an island
But I can't leave you all out at sea
You're so violent with your silence
You're an island I can't sleep
Won't you speak to me
I'm on dry land
Won't you help me please
