3 Day Lyric Challenge – Mew themed (2/3)

mew-bn

Second day of the challenge…

So here are the rules

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

I was nominated by Madame Suze directly from Suziland (Thank you again, sweet Suze), and you HAVE to pay her a little visit, if you don’t know her already… Because… Well, because, you just have to trust me! And tell her Cyra sends you, that way she won’t chase you out of her property with a broom… She might even offer a cookie, if she has any. (please pack up, Suze, you don’t want to decieve people, right?)

(Ok, that’s it for point 1)

As mentionned yesterday, my three posts for this challenge will feature the same (Danish) band: Mew. If you want to read a bit more about the band, you can catch up on what I had to say yesterday, here, or simply ask Google. Google knows the guys very well!

Tonight, I would probably be cheating, if I had not been nominated by Suze. I am presenting not one but TWO songs! (oh silly, silly me!!)

I love choosing live performances, because Mew is one of these bands that delivers the same product, when they perform and on their albums. And that’s pretty amazing these days with all the vocal and musical touch up you can do. So here are “Sometimes life isn’t easy” and “Repeaterbeater”, first live and then seperately for people who’d prefer to hear the “album” versions.

Enjoy!

 

 

Sometimes I’ve got nothing to say.
Nothing to sing about,
That makes you lie awake.
Sometimes I’ve got nothing to do.
Nothing to signal out when I can’t be with you.
How should I hold this girlfriend?
As tight as I ever could?
Now, why should I?
No reason why.
You wore me down worse.
Did I show?
Show me something good.
Show me something.
Sometimes I am nowhere to be found.
If it is just a bed, then why the ringing sound?
Sometimes we’ve got nowhere to be.
Nothing to talk about.
And nothing to agree on.
How should I hold this girlfriend?
As tight as I ever could?
Now, why should I?
No reason why.
You wore me down worse.
Did I show?
How should I hold this girlfriend?
As tight as I ever could?
Now, why should I?
No reason why.
You wore me down worse.
Did I show?
(for some reason, this link doesn’t seem to show the usual YouTube window… But use it if you want to hear the album version for “Sometimes life isn’t easy”)

No don’t cry for me
Celebrate El Sueño
The way it operates
No don’t cry for me
Celebrate El Sueño
The way it oughta be

Thinking about everything
Why did you stop?
You don’t know what it’s like
Isn’t that how it goes
When you’re lovesick?
Thinking about everything

Don’t you know sometimes when it feels
Like someone put a hex on you?
Well I felt like that, I was blaming myself
I was cushioning my fall

Hold my arms back when they beat me
Leave me in the ditch when they kick me
Sever my limbs and deceive me
Sometimes life isn’t easy

Here we go, here we go
I’m surprised in you
Here we go home
Beside you
An like you
I’m lost in your doubt
Scrolling, scrolling, scrolling

Hold my arms back when they beat me
I promise you
Don’t you know sometimes when you can’t
See no end to the tricks we play?
Sometimes life isn’t easy

Here we go, here we go
I’m surprised in you
Here we go home
Beside you
An like you
I’m lost in your doubt
Scrolling, scrolling, scrolling

Safety net, I regret
I am shaky
We know you are
I am shaking

 

 

That covers point 2. I’ll see you tomorrow, with some more!
