Lied van de week: week 34 - 2013

Home - Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros


 
Het "lied van deze week" is voor één keer niet iets nieuws, maar een nummer dat al in 2010 uitgebracht werd door de overigens fel onderschatte Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros. De laatste weken hoor je het weer heel vaak op Studio Brussel, en het zette zich vast in mijn hoofd. Het is een heel vrolijk, liefdevol nummer, dat me altijd een beetje doet denken aan Little talks van Of Monsters And Men, qua sfeer dan.
Op het clipje van het Tiny Desk Concert waarop ze het nummer speelden, zie je trouwens écht liefde tussen zanger en zangeres...


Het nummer vind je op het in 2009 verschenen album Up from below, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics:

Alabama, Arkansas
I do love my Ma and Pa
not the way that I do love you.

Well, holy moley me-oh-my
you're the apple of my eye
Girl, I've never loved one like you

Man, oh,man, you're my best friend
I'll scream it to the nothingness
There aint nothin that I need.

Well, hot 'n heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake and Jezus Christ. Ain't nothin please me more than you.

Ah Home
let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you
Ah Home
Let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you

La, la, la, la take me home
Baby I'm comin home

I'll follow you into the park
through the jungle, through the dark
girl I never loved one like you

moats and boats and waterfalls
alley ways and pay phone calls
I've been everywhere with you
that's true

laugh until we think we'll die
barefoot on a summer night
never could be sweeter than with you

And in the streets we're runnin free
like it's only you and me
Jeeze, you're somethin' to see

Ah Home
Let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you
Ah Home
Let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you

la, la, la, la take me home
baby, I'm comin home

Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?
I sure do you, you came jumpin out after me
well you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital
do you remember that?
yes I do

well there's something I never told you about that night
what didn't you tell me?
well you were sitting in the back seat smoking a cigarette
you thought was gonna be your last
I was fallin deep deeply in love with you
and I never told you till just now
O I love you

Ah Home
let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you
Ah Home
Let me come home
Home is whenever I'm with you

Home
let me come home
home is wherever I'm with you
Ah Home
Yes I'm home
home is when I'm alone with you

Alabama, Arkansas
I do love my ma amd pa
boats and Moats and water falls
alley ways and pay phone calls

Home Oh home
Home is when I'm alone with you
Home Oh home
Home is when I'm alone with you
