B i o g r a p h y
 (by Heather Phares)

Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Luke Sutherland formed Bows after the breakup of his first group, the critically-acclaimed Long Fin Killie. Danish singer Signe Høirup Wille-Jørgensen completed the core of Bows' lineup, and the duo made their debut early in 1999 with the trip-hop inspired single "Big Wings." The jazzy single "Blush" and the album of the same name appeared later that year. Sutherland is also a critically-acclaimed novelist; his semi-autobiographical first book Jelly Roll, which follows the journey of a Scottish jazz band touring the highlands, was nominated for a Whitbread Prize in the First Novel category.

*** Thanx a lot to Christel of Too Pure for some of these lyrics ***

Big wings

I could see myself
At twenty eight
What do you think of me now
To Hell with big wings
Heaven can wait
I won't be
I won't be checking out

Torn
Between big love
And hate
A passion whichever
Way round
Could have been
Could have been
Good intentions run aground

I am
I'm truly young
But I feel so old
'Cause the guage is
Good as gold
Plump and pearly
It's way too early
Slim and surly
Is clearly divine

Troy polenta's big break

So she says she'll be your girlfriend
When all you really want's a friend
Someone to love and have and hold you
Someone who'll always be there waiting for you
You're sick of super lightweight boyfriends
Of loving, lazing on the beach
All heads and hearts and hands like Brando
Sick of playing cool and out of reach

Blush

Bitching with my sisters is a pure and rare delight
Blissfully narcissistic only I won't get a
Bite my tongue before I say a single thing
That gives the game away

Golden off the shoulder that reveals my better side
Cupid tugs my heartstrings, can't resist the rising
Tidy little number
All the fun is in the wonder it excites

Fool talking
Things that I will never be
But I like it
It's what you do for

Smooth talking
Better get a better set for me

My good looking glass
There's really not much more at stake
Sicophantic asses flattering every move I
Make myself a million
And escape the mundane labours of the day

Fool talking
Things that I will never be
But I like it
It's what you do for

Smooth talking
Things that I will never ever be

Fool talking
Things that I will never be
But I like it
It's what you do for

Smooth talking
Better yet a better bet for me

Overfor kommer derefter

Hvor himlen giver op falder regnen

King deluxe

So you know
It was the first shot that dit it
You could say it changed my life
Centrefold
I'm living life how you live it
But I know it can't be right

Even so feeling this low isn't easy
It's a lifelong silence I know

And I suppose all your pose does is tease me
But there's nowhere else to go

'Cause you're a starlet in the making
Yes you are
That's why I'm waiting here

I don't believe the hype
But you're everything I hoped for
I don't believe the hype

I don't believe the hype
But you're everything I hoped for
I don't believe the hype

Can't relax
I'm way too neurotic
But your coolness calms me down
If love's a drug then your beauty is narcotic
Seems to always turn me round

'Cause you're a starlet in the making
Yes you are
That's why I'm waiting here

Starlet in the making
Yes you are
That's why I'm waiting here

I don't believe the hype
But you're everything I hoped for
I don't believe the hype

I don't believe the hype
But you're everything I hoped for
I don't believe the hype

Speed Marina (Hopper)

I won't wake up with you again
And this is why
All your sweet talk drives me insane
You're the wrong guy
You were down but now you're getting up
All short fuse and bruises
Now I've had enough
Won't be your wage slave
Won't be jilted
Won't be stigmatized

I won't be seen with you again
And this is why
Through all the abuse I'd just pretend
You're the right guy
You were down but now you're getting up
All short fuse and bruises
Now I've had enough
Won't be your wage slave
Won't be jilted
Won't be traumatised

Don't play this hard games with me
Don't play this hard games
Don't play this hard games with me
Don't play this hard games

You were down but now you're getting up
All short fuse and bruises
Now I've had enough
Won't be your wage slave
Won't be jilted
Won't be patronised

No. 4

Are you bummed out?
Are you feeling blue?
Well, for that allround summertime high,

Try Bows!

Bows! beats boredom
Bows! beats heartache
Bows! beats the blues
Bows! for those up and down days we can all do without

Britannica

Sleepless nights by candlelight
I'm sick of sneaking round
A kiss is a kiss but this is fake

I spend all my time trying to stay awake
But if I'm dreaming
Why do you look so alive?

The truth is you won't change for my sake
I guess at least we tried

Moonlight drives our lives are boring
Fed up sneaking round
This true-love affair is fading fast
Feels like the sun's coming out at last

And if I've been dreaming
Why did it seem so contrived

Up there with you
Just feels like falling
Well, at least we tried

Girls' lips glitter

US cool costs too much money
And takes up all my time
British humour isn't funny
I'm just trying to catch your eye

You've no idea what your looks do to me
It doesn't even cross your mind
You don't look like the kind to say much
But then I'm the quiet type

When you rise up from the gutter
You can play your hand
It's not enough until you've suffered
Nobody gives a damn

When where you're at is all that matters
It's all a question of your style
A catwalk stalk that cures your stutter
You're not the shy type

Not much I wouldn't do for money
Can't seem to draw the line
But this much lust tastes sweet as honey
And floors me every time

You've no idea what your looks do to me
It doesn't even cross your mind
Then again I think it's funny
You might be my type

Sleepy head

You're right
I just messed up again
Last night a bridge too far
You should have seen the lecherous drunken dreams
A compliment comes easy when you've lost all you have

It's late and you won't notice me
I'll wait until you do
Stay awake and make do with what's left of you
Or fake it and take it on the chin

When will I see you?
I can never get this right
I just want to breathe and feel you
All mine, all mine

Lurch like a loser
No wit or charm or fight
A ham fisted bruiser who's the
Wrong type

*** Thanx a lot to Rebecca who corrected some mistakes ***

Rockets

When I bear my soul again
Don't go wasting my time
I'm giving it my all
Believe me that I'm yours
And you're mine

I'm giving it my all believe me
You don't seem to care
Say what you have to say, don't mislead me
Don't you dare
I'm still trying
I can't do any more
I've loved you all my life

Cuban Welterweight Rumbles Hidden Hitmen

Punch drunk
Bust mouth and fingers
I flattened an african
They said, "win and we'll whack you"
So i break out the back way
Head for the highway and home
Honey-like sunlight
I cant cry for laughing

Now i found you
Feels like
I'll go down
Chill out
Ill come quietly
Wont make
A sound

Sleeping beauties
Ready to shoot me
They got hands full of magnums
Such beautiful shooters
Orchids in their pockets
Teenage mcqueens
And love comes like thunder
Just one tongue in the mouth kiss to wake them
And maybe they'll say. "hey, baby you and me. Hey
Vegas how about all three?"

Man Fat

I wonder how you'd feel in daylight
A million miles of memphis skin
A heart from here to eternity
And all that meat to keep it in

Whatever makes your day
I would
Anything you say
It's alright
Thieving diva
I dont give a damn
Come down

I see palm trees sand and haloes
Every time you come and sing
A glimpse of you and me
In paradise
Shame about the south sea thing

Whatever that makes your day

Whatever makes your day
I would
Anything you say
It's alright
Thieving diva
I dont give a damn
Come down

You'd look heaven-sent to me
A head like marlon in the wild one
Just everything, everything

Whatever makes your day
I would
Anything you say
It's alright
Thieving diva
I dont give a damn
Come down

Ali 4 Onassis

Ali:
It's like rockets flaming all around you
All my summers come at once
TKO
Mrs President you've floored me

Something inside of me
Laid Bare
First date
So right
Soul mates
This is
What it's meant to be like

Onassis:
My whole life was meant for this moment
Cruising with you
Out of Harlem
And over the Turnpike

Something inside of me
Laid Bare
First date
Out of sight
Starsigns
This is
What it's meant to be like

Ali and Onassis:
All you are is every thing to me

*** Thanx a lot to Li for this one ***

Uniroyal

I feel so white
Golden im fine
Thanks.... i see
This is for real
Sneezing to be...
Who... asked
Love these
Sneeze friendly...
I... feel fine
See starlight
Soothes me
Big wings big deal
Easy... to be...
Cool as....
Bug beats seems to fills me
Oh you told me we could have this whole thing down
Less you must(?) when you hit the ground
And i'll be sexual(?) on those who are weeping now
Where my masson(?)

*** Thanx a lot to Driftwood for this one ***

B Boy Blunt

B boys are easy
Ko gals are hard

So long to boys
Loaded's almost over
Love is in the air
So hold out

Big black was so last year
Blood-red is here

So overjoyed
To ditch the lisp and whisper
Chubby bunny boys
Kicks and blisters
And if first base kinda limits you
Dont take it so hard

Wonderland

All the hustler's are in bed - sleepyheads
As we flit above the rooftops of their homes - lazy Bones
If i could keep you hidden from everyone - i would
But they'll soon be dreaming of you

Sky-high most times that im with you
And if i hand you every hearbeat, oh why wont you hold Me

Feels all england is at stake - and it's too late
Cos there's nothing of me left that isn't yours and
There's no cure
If i could keep you hidden from everyone - would
But there'll soon be pin-ups of you - so young

Sky highmost times that im with you
And if i hand you every hearbeat, oh why wont you hold Me

Speed wont get me anywhere
Fine time to feel so undone

If i hand you every heartbeat, oh why wont you hold me
If all englands dreaming of you, ill try not to stop You.

DJ

Summer storms in benidorm an essax jubilee
Vicious brits with kissing lips have made a saint of me
Bubble gum means nothing now that punks no longer lean
Ill make do with queues and right-wing views and
Nothing in between
Ahnds full of real me you can feel that i dont mind
I...
Dont mind

You're all i need you're everything to me
Open skies and zero gravity

Blue Steeples

Love bites, burns like a sunrise
That's why id just as soon as lie down and leave the
World behind
Heaven is a headful of lotus leaves and voodoo
God is a dj the feng shui craze is cool

Disco inferno
Too much will 2k
Pop an alka seltzer
And ill be ok

But what the fuck will you do with these skinny white
Lies
Go topless for smash hits
Or wind up on a chatline-phonesex-soul-mate-style

Heaven is a weekend of skin-flick tricks and
Ball-games
Asses for angels, home-made flavour fame

Walking on water?
Rizia's and flares!
Look for a starbucks sign
And you will find me there

Hey Vegas

If james dean was here we'd still be great
Sweatshops and brand-slaves blown away
So long

Im wasted, can't deny it
It's been so long since i tried to fight it
So long

James dead risen from the grave
At lights out his wings shine like star showers
Shine on me

So bless you coke and nike
There's blue skies over hawaii

So long

Sun Electric

Satisfaction guaranteed
Lips that bring you to your knees
I cant help my self obsession

In drag, the best dressed that i ever had
Sweetmeat on screen
Wide eyed sirens coming clean

Better let it be
Better head than me

Keep my love scenes to myself

Ton Ten All The Way One

Something Happens When Im With You
Gods Own Medicine Couldnt Be Cooler
Thrills And Lipstick, Glitter And Toys
Cold Be Carnage When You're A Boy
High-Speed Fever, The Whole Wide World Whirls
So Much Easier When You're A Girl

Coming Atcha
No Ones Faster

I’m Flaming For You
