The Sea
Morcheeba Lyrics


Flocking to the sea
Crowds of people wait for me
Sea gulls scavenge
Steal ice cream
Worries vanish
Within my dream

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

Fishing boats sail past the shore
No singing may-day any more
The sun is shining
The water's clear
Just you and I walk along the pier

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

A cool breeze flows but mind the wasp
Some get stung it's worth the cost
I'd love to stay
The city calls me home
More hassles fuss and lies on the phone

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living
Living

And I, living
By the sea

Crowds of people wait for me

Worries vanish
Within my dream
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
Fishing boats sail past the shore
No singing may-day any more
The sun is shining
The water's clear
Just you and I walk along the pier
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
A cool breeze flows but mind the wasp
Some get stung it's worth the cost
I'd love to stay
The city calls me home
More hassles fuss and lies on the phone
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
I left my soul there
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living
Living
And I, living
By the sea

They should have been way more popular. Her voice is pure silk.

Agree, one very cool song, and Skye's voice is fantastic. Never heard a Morcheeba song that wasn't the definition of cool.

Ashley Pomeroy

It's weird. It didn't even chart, although apparently it sold enough to be certified silver. It's not as if smooth trip-hop-inspired pop was unpopular at the time. Perhaps their record label didn't have any faith in them.

Matthew Little

Truly one of the most-beautiful voices I've ever heard. Saw them in concert in a tiny (200-person) venue in Toronto once. Skye sang live -- no chance of lip syncing, as she'd stop periodically and say something and you could hear her breathe slightly, etc. -- and she sounded every bit as good live as on the album, which is saying a lot! It was an absolutely amazing and mesmerizing performance. Love them!

This song gives me glimpse of the feeling that young me had, completly free, not worried at all, fantastic sweet feeling.

As someone with past-cardiac issues, a high heartbeat is a terrible thing when trying to sleep. I put Morcheeba on, her subtle silky velvety voice, the tune, the beat that makes you feel as if you're on holiday.

Always does the trick. Nice and relaxed.
