You're the only fish in the sea,
For me, for me
I thought that you were fishing for me,
Maybe, maybe

You're the one that got away,
And you got bigger everyday
I kept stretching out my arms,
But you were always way beyond
My reach

There's no more we're you came from,
No one, no one
I guess I flew to close to the sun,
Head long, head long

I' been a fish out of the water,
Ever since the night I saw ya
I've been swimming on dry land
Feeling like a drowning man
In the sand

You're the only pebble on the beach,
Out of reach, out of reach
I knew that you have something to teach,
With no speech, with no speech

You caught me hook, line, and sinker,
When you weren't even thinking
You just didn't wanna know,
But I made you tell me so,
You had to tell me no,
'Cos I had to know

How I wish I'd caught you too,
Just you, just you
Now we might be out in the blue,
Us two, just two

The only fish in the sea
The only fish in the sea
