'Til I Gain Control Again
This Mortal Coil Lyrics


Just like the sun over the mountain top
You know I'll always come again
You know I love to spend my morning times
Like sunlight dancing on your skin

What you see is what I've been
There is nothing I could hide from you
You see me better than I can
Out on the roads that lies before me now
There are some turns where I will spin
I only hope that you can hold me now
'til I can gain control again

Like a lighthouse you must stand alone
And mark a sailor's journey's end
Nno matter what seas I have been sailing on
I'll always row this way again

Out on the roads that lie before me now
There are some turns where I will spin
I only hope that you can hold me now
'til I can gain control again

I only hope that you can hold me now
'til I can gain control again

Mark Lynch

@Tom Byrne I've just watched it as well. It's like I've just woken up into something I already knew. Superb documentary. This music is a perfect fit for the documentary and also my life as I turn 50 tomorrow.

Just watched the Adam Curtis documentary..... mindfuck

The music to it was amazing, has taken me on a journey.
Has she not got a beautiful voice...

Bless to all the good ones out there.

me too - and these words are mine, too:

Out on the road that lies before me now 
There are some turns where I will spin 
I only hope that you can hold me now 
Till I can gain control again

Beautiful. Odd times in my life associated with this and other This Mortal Coil songs. June, 1992-Someone tried to burn down our house. Dog died but we all escaped and eventually rebuilt. During that pseudo-homeless time, I stayed with friends, neighbors, and just stayed up all night. On some of those nights, I would go to a friend's backyard and read Anne Rice books in his well lit backyard- always listening to this and other songs by This Mortal Coil.

This gave me the feels. Hope you're well.

hey, I came across this song today and I'm so touched. I like that you put your story here. I'm alone in a foreign country away from home. there is a terrible disease outbreak going on these days. this song is like a relief appearing in the ocean of helplessness i've felt.
