​East Of Us

This song is by Eddi Reader and appears on the album Eddi Reader (1994).

Ha-ha, ah-ee-ah
She's an iceberg
White and glistening
Open fire
See her melting

{Holding on to the east of us}
There's a tornado turning
{I wish you well from the east of us}
In the palms of our careless hands
{You're a million miles from the east of us}
Whistling and buring
{A long way down our lifeline}
Tearing down our lifeline

He's on a river
Fast white water
He just can't hold her
She just can't hold him
Why d'you do that
Tear our house down
With your nights of swimming
And diving and drowning

Ah diving and drowning

{Holding on to the east of us}
Just a tornado turning
{I wish you well from the east of us}
In the palm of our careless hand
{You're a million miles from the east of us}
Whistling and burning
{A long way down our lifeline}
Tearing down our lifeline

So be brave now
Look I've seen it
God it's beautiful
Never fear it
Ah, we're at the edge now {ah}
Crouched and praying
It feels like suicide {ah}
It feels like flying
Oh like Icarus {ah}
He kissed the sunshine
Jump we're falling {ah}
But stay we're drowning
So run and fly...
Run and fly
Ooh-ah

Oh-ooh
