So where did you go?
Where do you go in the big sleep?
Going out in the deep sleep.
Is where you're wandering now?
So where did you go?
When you're in the big sleep?
Drifting in wildlife,
And still you're wandering now.

We were on the top and the world was spinning,
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning.
Communication lost in the thundering rain style,
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning,
Going out in the big sleep, out in the big sleep,
Could have been years, you know it could have been years,
Or only seconds ago.

Big Sleep, deep sleep.

Where are you now?
Now that you're up in big sleep.
Valuable friend,
They saw you leaving this way.

We were on the top and the world was spinning,
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning.
Communication lost in the thundering rain style,
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning.
Where did you go?
Immaculate friend.
For a lifetime I'm grateful,
And it's only seconds away.

Big Sleep, deep sleep.

For evermore.
If only you could see me,
If only you could see me,
If only you could see,
Forever.
Coming home in the big sleep,
Coming home.

Aptly named band. Simple music too.

Interesting idea to play a Casio keyboard demo track over a drive-thru speaker. And by "interesting" I mean "laughably dated and horrible".
Oh yeah, very true statement - now if you could kindly explain to us what it has to do with this track? I pledge to you that I will eat my New Gold Dream CD for breakfast if you can prove to us that Simple Minds used a Casio over a drive-thru speaker (whatever that may be) on this track. But maybe it's just the equipment at your end, or your own little ears... :stupid: :rolleyes: :lol:
Wow i've not heard this for years. All of my Simple Minds albums are on vinyl. Gonna have to dig this out. Reminds me of college when life was a lot more simple. Fanatastic song.

More German here LOL! Well gotta give this one a 10, for sentimental reasons.... I attach too much good feeling to this... and I think it's very atmospheric.
