Additional information

The meaning is very similar to the themes of Showbiz.

Lyrics

Resuscitate 
In my sleep 
Awake to see 
You're never here

And the losing yields 
Another year 
Facing hopes and fears

And I wish 
I could believe there was more 
Hope suffocating 
You've kissed my life

And the planes and trains 
Are to blame 
For tempting us 
To refrain 
And to cut the chord 
Dis every word 
Of the truths absurd and I wish 
I could believe there was more 
Hope suffocating 
And you've kissed my life

And I wish
I could believe there was more
Hope suffocating 
Hope suffocating 
Hope suffocating 
And you've kissed my life

Different take lyrics

The following lyrics were used when the 'different take' version was sung at a BBC session in 1999. Note that they include lyrics reused from the demo version of Sunburn that was not included in Showbiz, but were dropped from the studio recording of Recess.

Resuscitate 
In my sleep 
Awake to see 
You're never here
And the losing yields 
Another year 
Facing hopes and fears

And the trains and planes 
Are to blame 
For tempting us 
To refrain 
And to cut the chord 
Dis every word 
Of the truths absurd and I wish 
I could believe there was more 
Hope suffocating 
And you've kissed my life

Let the truth be heard
Life just carries on
When you're dead and gone
When you're dead and gone
Life just carries on
Let the truth be known

And I wish
I could believe there was more
Hope suffocating 
And you've kissed my life

Hope suffocating 
Hope suffocating 
Hope suffocating 
And you've kissed my life
