One Flesh

This song is by The Chameleons and appears on the album What Does Anything Mean? Basically (1985).

With the sun in your eyes it's easy mistaking the truth from the lies in the love that you're making
Don't pretend it isn't so
With the sun in your eyes it always reveals a voluntary bondage that always appeals
It's how you make the garden grow

But why this weakness? No one knows. Our conscience cries his sorrow while we sleep
But once the morning's dawned, out the back door silently he creeps

With the sun in your eyes, always reminding. A sense of excitement you've no hope of finding
With the chains that bind your feet
Belonging or longing, for a few empty hours in a stranger's bed
To chase away a fear that's in your head

And why this weakness? No one knows. The vacant, faceless voices on the phone
Bring words that offer no consolation when you're all alone

With the sun in your eyes. The sun in your eyes

To cover your ears, shade your eyes. Thoughts conceived between the [...]
Beaten on the brow of history. A union forged in slavery
In all that's hope and decency. Hope for you and hope for me
For every woman, child and man. To those who'll chain you if they can
The babe you're bouncing on your knee needs your help now, can't you see?
The babe you're bouncing on your knee needs your help now, can't you see?
