lyrics;
   shara:
(tiki tiki tiki) (boom, boom) i (boom) quietly observe (boom) standing in my space (yes daddy)
daydreaming (massive massive massive massive)
i quietly (boom) observe standing in my space (boom chicky chick, boom chicky chick, boom chicky chick)
daydreaming
   3D:
way that we say 'em in style that we writ 'em in
massive attack we keep it strong just like a vitamin
going for the positive wiping out the negative songs
'cause brother it's relative
the pass is pick up all the lyrics on the dance floor
that raise your spirit level 'cause it demands for
   tricky:
attitude is cool breeze below zero
up against the wall behaving like de niro
tricky's performing taking his phono
making a stand with a tan touch it like cocoa
smooth to keep you moving at the back now
free is the needle is moving through the track now
   3D:
dance to the drummer's beats we need new sticks
bounce around the vibes like acoustics
no drugs or pharmaceuticals for the body ain't suitable
stick with liquid me and trick we've drop
a paper which you use my tongue to lick with
   tricky:
trouble and strife ain't no sunshine in my life
wiseguys get protection when they carry a knife
they shouldn't have been born they're making me yawn
but i just take it easy as a sunday morn'
   3D:
so you come on light my fire and
together we'll grow forever watch my eight kay rig go
   daddy g:
because my eight kay rig goes boom boom
my eight kay rig goes boom
   3D:
yeah rhymin' the jam-ina we got the stamina
in case you never know us if we don't give a damn-ina
and it's hard to handle keep your distance
resist and the posse gets the pleasure of this dance
the cool breeze that you welcome in the heat
you don't see it but you feel it when it's blowing on the street
   tricky:
if i was a rich man
   daddy g:
da da dada da da da dada da dada
   tricky:
i quietly observe standing in my space
it's the devious days they call the rat race
it's a concrete jungle, evil in the town
weebles, wobble, occasional squabble
but what happen when the bomb drops
down
   3D:
don't make sound (yes)
'cause the dancefloor's a desert
and the dancers are parched
do a rain dance and your brain's still marsh
my heavy my brother get lighter than helium
float above the world to break the tedium
living in my headphones sony's what i say to 'em
the surreal boom of the budokan stadium
   shara:
well i'm floating on air
when i'm daydreaming
i quietly observe standing in my space
   tricky:
well i'm tricky kid don't deal with sadness
can't be with the one i love i love the one that i miss
i'm very down to earth but brain sits on top floor
don't need another lover i just need i'm insecure
   3D:
the weather is a-changin' the storms be shakin
the love that you take is equal to the love you're makin'
here comes the sun little darlin' here comes the sun
   daddy g:
it's alright
   tricky:
yes tricky kid i check my situation
maggie this maggie that maggie means inflation
hip-hop you don't stop cause i'm not sloppy
i like the beat so we need another copy
   3D:
we're natives of the massive territory and we're proud
get peaceful in the dance, adapt the glory and the crowd
the problem ain't a different kind of skin tricks
i love my neighbour i don't wait for the olympics
so you go hooligan you're trying to play the fool again
   tricky:
caught you in the lost and found
   3D:
when your posse weren't around
   tricky:
no crap
   3D:
so you're going for you tool again
   shara:
daydreaming
i quietly observe standing in my space (space, space space)
daydreaming
well i'm floating on air
when i'm daydreaming

lyrics [1998 live version];
   deborah miller:
i quietly observe standing in my space
daydreaming
   3D:
it's the way that we say 'em in style that we writ 'em in
to keep it strong like a vitamin
going for the positive wiping out the negative songs
'cause it's relative
keeps you moving at the back now
as the needle is moving through the track now
with the drummer's beats we need new sticks
like acoustics
stimulating pharmaceuticals for my body ain't suitable
stick with liquid me and trick we've drop
a paper which you use my tongue to lick with
   daddy g:
trouble and strife ain't no sunshine in my life
wiseguys get protection when they carry a gun
they shouldn't have been born they're making me yawn
but i just keep it easy like a sunday morn'
   3D:
so you come light fires
and together we'll grow
you watch my eight kay rig go
   daddy g:
because my eight kay rig goes boom boom
my eight kay rig goes boom
   3D:
yeah my eight kay rig goes boom boom
my eight kay rig goes boom
rhymin' the jam-ina we got the stamina
in case you never know we don't give a damn
it's hard to handle keep your distance
resist get the pleasure of this
a cool breeze that you welcome in the street
you don't see it but you feel it when it's blowing...
   daddy g:
if i was a rich man
da da dada da da da dada da dada
   3D:
gotta dance around the night like acoustics
dance around the night like acoustics
   deborah:
floating on air
daydreaming
   3D:
the dancefloor's a desert
and the dancers are parched
do a rain dance brain's still marsh
my heavy my brother get lighter than helium

   3D:
here comes the sun it's alright
gotta float above the world to break the tedium
float above the world to break the tedium
   deborah:
floating on air
daydreaming
floating on air
