Description

Creepy B-side that was played sometimes in the European tour promoting Showbiz.

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
