So, where do I go, where do I go?

I don’t die young, not like Michael

My friend’s psycho, so, I might go lie low

So, where do I go, where do I go?

Fun trips, she’s wearing lycro

Where do we go, where do we go

When we die, then we lie low?

 

[Chorus: Martina Topley-Bird]

How can you somewhat say?

Twins apart, faded grey

Is it like that dream I had?

And you are here like a dream

 

[Verse 2: Tricky]

Where did you go, where did you go?

Why did you leave?

What do you need, what do you need?

Now you go, I hardly breathe

What do you see, what do you see?

I think of you and waste my day

So, where do we go, where do we go

When we die, then we lay low?

 

[Chorus: Martina Topley-Bird]

How can you somewhat say?

Twins apart, faded grey

Is it like that dream I had?

And you are here like a dream

 

[Chorus: Martina Topley-Bird]

How can you somewhat say?

Twins apart, faded grey

Is it like that dream I had?

And you are here like a dream

 

[Chorus: Martina Topley-Bird]

How can you somewhat say?

Twins apart, faded grey

Is it like that dream I had?

And you are here like a dream
