Overland, West of Suez - Maximo Park

Overland
The desert sands are born
A not too brief exchange
The details somehow got relayed
Neither of us were born to believe this
But you made the first move to escape

Closer than me to the equator
I looked you up on that ?
Not as close as we once were, oh no.

Undeterred
A man of words was born
Your vocation came
You found your target at a cave
Take me to where bodies glide
Crystal underneath the waves

Closer than me to the equator
I looked you up on that ??
Not as close as we once were, no.
Not as close as we once weren no

I thought I saw your older sister
I was gonna ask after you
West of Suez, East of Britain
I was gonna ask after you
Cause she looked so much like you
I meant to ask after you.
