black satin lyrics – the raveonettes

sun explodes on my skin
i don’t like the state i’m in
trying to catch the perfect wave
it’s coming now, come on let’s rave
but i drown, yeah i drown

out all day, all in vain
pale skin, sun causes pain
the water’s cold, deep, and black
down again, board’s cracked
and i drown, yeah i drown

look who’s here to save my soul
sweet night, she’s on a roll
covers me with all her black
satin dress, takes me aback
and i drown, yeah i drown
