Lied van de week : week 19 - 2012

Little talk - Of Monsters And Men




Misschien nog meer dan I'm a bird van Marco Z (enkele weken geleden hier nog vermeld), zijn de kinderen weg van dit leuk deuntje van het IJslandse Of Monsters And Men. En ik ben ook gecharmeerd, zeker na het zien van het filmpje hieronder waarop ze het nummer live brengen. Het doet me overigens ook aan Arcade Fire denken, maar dan in een vrolijker bui...




Je kan het album My head is an animal, waarop je Little talk kan vinden, hier kopen.

Lyrics :

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

Some days I can't even trust myself

It's killing me to see you this way

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
I tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will all be over, buried with our past
You used to play outside when you were young
Full of life and full of love

Some days I feel like I am wrong and I am right

Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey!

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Go, go, go away

I wish you'd disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go, me against you
Now wait, wait, wait for me
Please hang around
I see you when I fall asleep

Hey!

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say

Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Because though the truth may vary

This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore
