Sea Song
Robert Wyatt Lyrics


You look different every time you come
From the foam-crested brine
It's your skin shining softly in the moonlight
Partly fish, partly porpoise, partly baby sperm whale
Am I yours? Are you mine to play with?
Joking apart, when you're drunk you're terrific when you're drunk
I like you mostly late at night you're quite alright

But I can't understand the different you in the morning
When it's time to play at being human for a while, please smile
You'll be different in the Spring, I know
You're a seasonal beast like the starfish that drift in with the tide, with the tide
So until your blood runs to meet the next full moon
You're madness fits in nicely with my own, with my own
Your lunacy fits neatly with my own, my very own

We're not alone

You look different every time you come
From the foam-crested brine
It's your skin shining softly in the moonlight
Partly fish, partly porpoise, partly baby sperm whale
Am I yours? Are you mine to play with?
Joking apart, when you're drunk you're terrific when you're drunk
I like you mostly late at night you're quite alright
But I can't understand the different you in the morning
When it's time to play at being human for a while, please smile
You'll be different in the Spring, I know
You're a seasonal beast like the starfish that drift in with the tide, with the tide
So until your blood runs to meet the next full moon
You're madness fits in nicely with my own, with my own
Your lunacy fits neatly with my own, my very own
We're not alone

Alexandros Deligiorgis

Sea song is such an eerie, inventive, innovative, original and spectacular song.

Ori Morad

To this day remains the best love song of all time

Javier Shang

One of the purest utterings in music history, such a freedom feeling, that last part is divine, Wyatt voice up to heaven, reminds me of Van Morrison phrases in Astral Weeks... I read somewhere on an interview that Van's seminal album influenced Wyatt when he was doing rock bottom. Two magical and mystical albums.
