Flood Water
Nitzer Ebb Lyrics


There was something in the way that the day broke

thunder rumbled in a darkened sky

wind in your hair, rain on your face

fire in your eyes with your head held high

I felt no pain as you walked away
I felt no pain it was no surprise

and I had to say that I know there's
No such thing as a free ride, yeah


There's no such thing as a free ride, yeah



I could see, I could see clouds coming


And I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

I could see, I could see clouds breaking
And I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater




There was something in the way that our hearts flowed
Locked in the rhythm no need to try

there was something in the way that they grew cold

when the rain came and our innocence died

when the rain it came and we had to pay

had to pay for the free ride

when the rain came it came and we had to say

out loud what we felt down inside

and we had to say that we knew there's

no such thing as a free ride, yeah

that there's no such thing as a free ride, yeah

there's no such thing as a free ride, yeah



I could see, I could see clouds coming

and I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

I could see, I could see clouds breaking
And I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater


I could see, I could see clouds coming


And I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

I could see, I could see clouds breaking
And I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater



warm, like home, warm, like summers we were warm


Like home, warm, like summers we had known
And shared and cherished

back when we used to care about each other
And the feelings that we shared as


Hand in hand until we said there's no such thing as a free ride, yeah
There's no such thing as a free ride, yeah

there's no such thing as a free ride, yeah


There's no such thing as a free ride, yeah



I could see, I could see clouds coming

and I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

I could see, I could see clouds breaking

and I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater



I could see, I could see clouds coming

and I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

I could see, I could see clouds breaking

and I knew we'd soon be treading floodwater

Big Hit is an underrated NE album. Lots of good songs on it - including this one.

Off World Films

Has an electronic-western vibe to it. Nice.

Javier Fernandez

more funky than the funk
