Babel

Babel

Massive Attack

Say it was your babel
Say it was my babel
It was my babel
Tell all people

Now you know it's over rolling off her shoulder
You can take a ladder to the shadows and forget
Was it how she kissed you and then dismissed you
Was it purposeful and was it just to hook you in

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing
Breaking, hating till you lost it all
Where was your girlfriend, he was not your ?
Where you were going, you're on your own

He was quick to burning
He was slow to learning
Though inside your misty
He still kissed her when she cried
And did your best to please her
And then get up and leave her
You befriended the harsh way it ended now sleep tight

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing, gracing
Breaking, hating till you lost it all
