THE MACCABEES Dawn Chorus

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Dawn Chorus Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

You run rings around
You make perfect days
Swing a bottle and send him on his way
He still thinks about
How his ship has sailed
Swigs a bottle to send him on his way down

Break it up to make it better

Now the boat has flown

He still thinks about
How that ship has sailed
Swigs a bottle to send him on his way

And break it up to make it better

It?s not for us to say
It?s not for us to say

THE MACCABEES Pioneering Systems

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Pioneering Systems Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

What would we have done
If you?d never come back?
The world, what was it coming to
The world, what was it coming to

What more could we have done
It carried on so long
The world, what was it coming to
The world, what was it coming to

When we dreamed in low resistance of pioneering systems
And listened to the words ?we want to hear?

You had a vision
You were cutting your son?s hair
What a revelation
You never saw yourself there
What a revelation

THE MACCABEES WW1 Portraits

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES WW1 Portraits Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Just so beautiful
Inside out more colourful
Fair hair tied back casual
A go-getter, go-getter
You?re the best of all
You?ve seen it four, five hundred times on repeat
You?re like a leftover better than a ribbon-tied treat
Narrow roads, never limit, never temper your speed
And when the river froze solid you?re still swimming upstream
You?d hold your own in the presence of pauper and a king
Leave a singing bird silent, make a hummingbird sing
You are a rope-a-doper coming back queen
They all want you so bad, of course they do

Just so beautiful

You break your back for the mission because you know where you stand
You live your life to a letter writ on the back of your hand
The way you move, you float, never know where you land
Give a five star rating if you know that you can
You are a rose-tinted underground fail
You are a red arrow fighter jet trail
You are the best of both, feel I know you so well
And I lay here beside you and I?m golden now

<br><br>

THE MACCABEES Something Like Happiness

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Something Like Happiness Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Oooooh
You just know when you know you just know
Oooooh
You got somewhere to go when you go

Must be like nothing else
Must be like nothing else
Taste like nothing else
Help like nothing else
Ease you and comfort and seem
Something like happiness

Oooooh
You just know when you know you just know
Oooooh
You got somewhere to go when you go

If you love them
Go and tell them
Tell them over and over and over again
Heaven forbid opportunities missed

If it’s over
Let it be over
Cause when time and again you have tried it again
And you’ve worn it right down to the bone

You just know when you know you just know
You got somewhere to go when you go

Must be like nothing else
Must be like nothing else
Taste like nothing else
Help like nothing else
Ease you and comfort and seem
Something like happiness

Must be like nothing else
Must be like nothing else
Taste like nothing else
Help like nothing else
Ease you and comfort and seem
Something like happiness

THE MACCABEES Slow Sun

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Slow Sun Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

It?s ok

Red letter, go-getter
The red won?t come off you
Faux leather trendsetter
New lace in an old shoe

Old enough, enough to know better
To dress for the weather
It?s all you?ve got
Waiting up for you
Cup of tea for you
There on the sofa
That?s real love

Lone figure, sole singer
The floor fills around you
Breadwinner, bone digger
A faith in the ?all new?

Old enough, enough to know better
To dress for the weather
And it?s all you?ve got
She?s waiting up for you
A cup of tea for you
There on the sofa
That?s real love

And that?s real enough
Holding out for you
While the company owns you
You know she adores you
And that?s real enough
No one else knows the length that she goes to
To keep it together
And that?s real enough
Now more than ever
Romance in shit weather
The ordinary glory of a real love

<br><br>

THE MACCABEES River Song

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES River Song Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Back to the water
The Capital?s river
Hoping on hope that he?d see you again
Place he first met you
The twist of your figure
The turn of your head just the same

Nothing?s forgotten
It?s cold for the autumn
Decided to hide from the rain
You say you won?t forgive him
You throw your drink at him
But go back to his just the same
Your friends have all warned you
He?s no good for you
The truth is we?ve all done the same

You?re not getting any younger
Soldier on for another year
Tell yourself you?re getting wiser
The truth is we?ve all done the same

You?re not getting any younger
Soldier on for another year
Tell yourself you?re getting wiser
The truth is we?ve all done the same

THE MACCABEES Silence

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Silence Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Thought I?d find it easier
Under lock, chain and key
Thought I?d find it easier
To just keep you to me
When the wisdom and the patience
Of the world?s wasted on me
That?s when I shut down my relationships
Watch them floating out to sea

I understand that it never ends
She?s waiting round every corner round every bend
And it hurts to know that I won?t know if you knew how the summer went
I understand silence

I understand that it never ends
She?s waiting round every corner round every bend
When you?re scared and lost don?t let it all build up
Break the silence

Someone to call a best friend
Someone to be there when it ends
When you?re scared and lost don?t let it all build up
Break the silence

<br><br>

THE MACCABEES Spit It Out

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Spit It Out Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Seen it spinning round
Out of all control
Twinkle, drink?ll star
Spinning out, spinning out
There?s one to wash it down
One to wash it out
One for the Postman?s Park
Spit him out, spit him out

Till he gets to the English coast
To the place he loved the most
Where the spinnakers on boats
Are filling out, filling out, out, out
Filling out, filling out, filling out

And we get to guessing games
Where no one knows their names
Guess no one?s going home
Staying out, out, out
staying out, staying out, staying out

What are we doing now, what are we doing now

Come on it?s going to get easier from now
Come on it?s going to get easier somehow
What are we doing now, what are we doing now
What are we doing now, what are we doing now

The storm came and tore limbs from the trees
Like a drowning whale
And the thought of it brought us all down to our knees

What are we doing now, what are we doing now
What are we doing now, what are we doing now

Spit it out, spit it out, spit it out, spit it out
spit it out, out, out

<br><br>

THE MACCABEES Ribbon Road

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Ribbon Road Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Oh fallen low
Endless round, endless roll
Endlessly signalling so
And it’s been real gold
Onward, headlong, night bus, stoned

Oh tell us how telephone
Swollen thumb written on
Window of iron lung
In a hot wet glow
Onward, headlong, night bus, stoned

Black curls, pale skin, paler in black underwear
Later on, later on, later on we won’t care
Onward, headlong, night bus, stoned…

THE MACCABEES Kamakura

Lyrics from robmerrera Sites THE MACCABEES Kamakura Lyrics, singer by THE MACCABEES

Drinking when you’re drunken
To chase down the evening
God that girl goes graceful
Wondering which way’s home
I heard nothing was changing
And that’s the shirt you’re wearing
No wonder no one’s noticed
That the summer’s been and gone
No one says a word
Because it breaks a heart
Submarine keep diving
Seagulls at the waste bins
Wish them all a winter
Must be rough at sea

He’s given a bloody nose to the best friend he knows
The only time he’s cried since he was seven years old Your best friends forgive you
Your best friends forget you get old

Steaming at the corners
When the blue pulled over
Said he wanted seasons
Miss red hot October
The Black Maria
Is where he finds his honour
The darker the corner
Now the summer’s been and gone
No one says a word because it breaks a heart
The coming and the going
Blame it on the ocean
Or coastal erosion
It must be rough at sea

He’s given a bloody nose to the best friend he knows
The only time he’s cried since he was seven years old
Your best friends forgive you
Your best friends forget you get old, you get old

No one says a word
Because it breaks her heart…
