 (by James Christopher Monger)

An evocative North London alt-rock outfit led by vocalist Ellie Rowsell, Wolf Alice deftly mixes folk, grunge, and electronic elements with vintage '90s indie rock. Formed in 2010 by Rowsell and guitarist Joff Oddie, the duo issued an eponymous EP independently before expanding into a four-piece in 2012 with the addition of drummer Joel Amey and bassist Theo Ellis. The newly minted quartet released a flurry of singles before putting out a proper debut EP, Blush, in 2013. The EP garnered positive reviews, with some critics comparing the group to Elastica, Garbage, the Duke Spirit, and the Pixies. The band's sophomore EP, Creature Songs, followed in 2014. A pair of singles, "Giant Peach" and "Bros," arrived before the Mercury Prize-nominated full-length My Love Is Cool in June 2015. The album also earned Brit, Grammy, and Ivor Novello award nominations. Along with touring, Wolf Alice contributed the song "Ghoster" to the Ghostbusters soundtrack in 2016 and began work on their second album. Written in London and recorded in Los Angeles with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, 2017's Visions of a Life featured the singles "Yuk Foo" and "Don't Delete the Kisses," and spanned the band's many sounds.

My Love is Cool 

Turn to Dust

Keep your beady eyes on me
To make sure I don't turn to dust
If fear is in the mind
Then my mind lives in fear
As deep and as vast as the dirty British sea

Keep your beady eyes on me
To make sure I don't turn to dust
There's paths to make the heart beat
And paths where I can skip
And a path to tread lightly with the clouds beneath my feet

When the light creeps from the blinds I dance in Heaven
It's just old passing time, it rains dead weather

Keep your beady eyes on me
To make sure I don't turn to dust

Bros

Shake your hair, have some fun
Forget our mothers and past lovers, forget everyone
Oh, I'm so lucky, you are my best friend
Oh, there's no one, there's no one who knows me like you do

Are your lights on
Are your lights still on
I'll keep you safe
You keep me strong

Remember when we cut our hair
We both looked like boys but we didn't care
Stick it out together, like we always do
Oh, there's no one, there's no one quite like you

Are your lights on?
Are your lights still on?
I'll keep you safe
You keep me strong

[Bridge]
Oh, jump that fourty three
Are you wild like me?
Raised by wolves and other beasts
I tell you all the time
I'm not mad
You tell me all the time
I got plans
Oh, jump that fourty three
Are you wild like me
Raised by wolves and other beasts
I tell you all the time
I'm not mad
You tell me all the time
I got plans

Me and you, me and you, me and you
We could do better, I'm quite sure
Me and you, me and you, me and you
We could do better, I'm quite sure
Me, me, me, me, me and you
Me, me, me, me, me and you

Your Love's Whore

Don't you want take time and get to know me
We could build a perfect world
I got tricks I really want to show you
I could be your perfect girl

And when we grow older
We'll still be friends
We'll still be lovers
And won't fear the end

The light won't flicker and the light won't fade, believe me
And the world looks better in the place we made believe
Hearts keep pumping and there's one thing that keeps me breathing
It's the mantra I sing and the face I always see

And when we grow older
We'll still be friends
We'll still be lovers
And won't fear the end
And when we grow older
We'll still be friends
We'll still be lovers
And won't fear the end

I let your love tease me
Now I am your love's whore
Keeps me hardly breathing
But I could only love you more
I could only love you more
I could only love you more
I could only love you more
I could only love you more

You're a Germ

Georgie rides a bike
To pick her up from school
He likes her cause she's pure
She likes him cause she's heard he's cool

You're a germ
Twist my insides
You're a germ
We're here to fight

This is not exploring
When you are dead inside
What were you before him?
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)

Makes me squirm
Twist my insides
Makes me squirm
We're here to fight

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
You ain't going to heaven
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
‘Cause I'm draggin' you down to hell
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
Where's mum and dad so you can tell them?
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
You're a dodgy fucker as well
(Eyes wild, eyes wide, oh)

Georgie takes to the mic
Plays the same songs every year
His leather looks pretty cheap
And the clock gives him the fear

You're a creep (You're a creep)
Twist my insides
You're a creep
We're here to fight

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
You ain't going to heaven
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
‘Cause I'm draggin' you down to hell
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
Where's mum and dad so you can tell them?
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
You're a dodgy fucker as well
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)

You ain't going to heaven, no!
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
‘Cause I'm draggin' you down to hell
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
Where's mum and dad so you can tell them?
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
Tell them you're a dodgy fucker as well!
(Eyes wild, eyes wide)
Yes you are

Lisbon

You're gonna look at me twice, that's eventual
You're there when you're not cause I'm smoking your menthols
Smoking your menthols
Wearing all your clothes again
They're wearing thin but it's one way to be together
Be together

Swallow the fear
My stone cold fox
My arms are here
I've been ready for so long
And I would lick your wounds and care

Feel like running, feel like crack
Feel like going out and smashing windows
I'm smashing windows
And in a black, black hole, deeper than death
I would wait for you there, just give me the breath, to say it
Back together

Swallow the fear
My stone cold fox
My arms are here
I've been ready for so long
And I would lick your wounds and care

Feel like running, feel like crack
Feel like going out and smashing windows
I'm smashing windows
And in a black, black hole, deeper than death
I would wait for you there, just give me the breath, to say it
Back together

Silk

Your broad shoulders, my wet tears
You're alive and I'm still here
As some half-human creature thing
Can you bring life to anything? Ooh
("Take this to make you better though eventually you'll die")
If you don't love me, don't tell me
I've never asked who and I'll never ask why
("It's such a shame, she used to be so delightful")
Well, whose fault is that, if it wasn't Mum and Dad's
"Well it must be yours"
We'll have none of that, no

Just looking for a protector
God never reached out in time
There's love that is a saviour
But that ain't no love of mine
My love it kills me slowly
Slowly I could die
And when she sleeps she hears the blues
And sees shades of black and white
(Run, run, run away)
(Run, run, run away)

Got to stay cool, you hot, hot head
Count to a thousand before you sleep in bed
Read the news, pass the time
Drink the juice, feeling fine
Got to stay cool, you hot, hot head
Count to a thousand before you sleep in bed
Read the news, pass the time
Drink the juice, feeling fine
"At least you're not boring"
No one ever wants to feel this sad, ohh

Just looking for a protector
God never reached out in time
There's love that is a saviour
But that ain't no love of mine
My love it kills me slowly
Slowly I could die
And when she sleeps she hears the blues
And sees shades of black and white

Just looking for a protector
God never reached out in time
There's love that is a saviour
But that ain't no love of mine
My love it kills me slowly
Slowly I could die
And when she sleeps she hears the blues
And sees shades of black and white

Freazy

Long were the days where the window held the deepest of my thoughts
It's okay, I found my place
Found on the way to the place I never really thought I'd go
It's okay, you were there in the back of my brain

Did you really wanna... with Alice?
Did you really wanna... with the wolf?
You can hate us all you want but
It don't mean nothing at all
You can join us if you think you're wild
You can join us if you're a feral child
Our love is cool

I built the paths that I took in my head over and over again
Step to step, to the light at the end
Oh make believe, I was a prisoner to my thoughts throughout my teens
Look at me, I don't read in between

Did you really wanna… with Alice
Did you really wanna… with the wolf
You can hate us all you want but
It don't mean nothing at all
You can join us if you think you're wild
You can join us if you're a feral child
Our love is cool

(I will meet you where the grass is greener)
(Hands on the clock, no I ain't watchin' them either)
(I will meet you where the grass is greener)
(Hands on the clock, no I ain't watchin' them either)
(I will meet you where the grass is greener)

Did you really wanna... with Alice
Did you really wanna... with the wolf
You can hate us all you want but
It don't mean nothing at all
(Hands on the clock, no I ain't watchin' them either)
You can join us if you think you're wild
You can join us if you're a feral child
Our love is cool
(I will meet you where the grass is greener)

Did you really wanna... with Alice
Did you really wanna... with the wolf
You can hate us all you want but
It don't mean nothing at all
(Hands on the clock, no I ain't watchin' them either)
You can join us if you think you're wild
You can join us if you're a feral child
Our love is cool

Giant Peach

I got change in a pocket somewhere
Got my letter in the box
Tired of waiting for the bus to nowhere
And tired of chasing the stone fox
I don't tell lies no more, you know
I just don't tell the truth
I don't know what I'm looking for, you know
But I'm not looking for proof

I have a tricky love affair, you know
With the place where I grew up
But it knows I'll never leave, you know
I never left it much
I hate to see it despair, oh, don't you do it
I hate to see it screw up
But it knows I can hardly grieve
When it's hard to give a, hard to give a

Don't know what keeps me here
It's not the boy giving the funny feels
Don't know what keeps me here
It's not the P to pay for the wheel
What the hell keeps me here
In this dark old town that I've adored
The rules don't seem so clear
And change, it feels like fear, it's all you know

Our dark and pretty town
Our dark and pretty town
Our dark and handsome town
Our dark and pretty town
My dark and pretty town

Swallowtail

Swallowtail, I met you up the top The Shard
As we fell, I never thought we'd hit this hard
It's not right, but it's too late for that now
Swallow fear, and head straight down into the ground

And head straight down into the crowd
The crowd that you've been leaning on
To the crowd
The crowd that you believed were gone

Swallowtail, I met you up the top The Shard
As we fell, I never thought we'd hit this hard
It's not right, but it's too late for that now
Swallow fear, and head straight down into the ground

And head straight down into the crowd
The crowd that you've been leaning on
To the crowd
The crowd that you believed were gone

Swallowtail, I met you up the top The Shard
As we fell, I never thought we'd hit this hard
It's not right, but it's too late for that now
Swallow fear, and head straight down into the ground

And head straight down into the crowd
The crowd that you've been leaning on
To the crowd
The crowd that you believed were gone

Soapy Water

I wash my face with soapy water
Disguise the tears cause you're somebody's daughter
And they don't ever wanna see you cry
Anxiety's grip is always waiting to take me
It sits in my stomach, I fear it's starting to shape me
It's hard to live when you're scared to die

If I'm gonna sit and wait then I might as well
Ask for the hand of the Devil himself
I thought I heard her laugh but it was hard to tell
So look into my eyes and see how close I am to crack
But they just say hello and never look back
I thought I heard them talk but it was hard to catch

Superstition has me out of control
Touch my head and bless my soul
I pray it ain't a feeling, but my soul is just old
Cause nothing heals misery's fist
No witch's pill, no lover's kiss
If life is easy then what is this

If I'm gonna sit and wait then I might as well
Ask for the hand of the Devil himself
I thought I heard her laugh but it was hard to tell
So look into my eyes and see how close I am to crack
But they just say hello and never look back
I thought I heard them talk but it was hard to catch

Light a smoke, put it out
Search for rooms, out of town
Start again, cut your hair
You've wondered love, but it's hard to care
(I'll care, I'll try to care)
Choose a religion, choose a goddamn sport
Go find something to eradicate these thoughts
You might not waste time, and keep good health
But that's not it, there's something else

If I'm gonna sit and wait then I might as well
Ask for the hand of the Devil himself
I thought I heard her laugh but it was hard to tell
So look into my eyes and see how close I am to crack
But they just say hello and never look back
I thought I heard them talk but it was hard to catch

Fluffy

You look smart, but I don't care
I'm not looking for no love affair
I'd sell you my soul just to get me somewhere
What's there to do in this dead-out town
Oh, I can't believe I live here now
So I'm searching for cheap thrills some way and somehow

Sixteen, so sweet
Sixteen, so sweet

Wait, waiting, I give in

Send me your light and make it bright and early
What makes you smile just makes me feel funny
So who's gonna love me here and where's all the money?
What's there to do? I've got nothing in this dead-out town
Oh, I can't believe I live here now
So I'm searching for cheap thrills the way I know how

Sixteen, so sweet
Sixteen, so sweet

As I sit here waiting, palms itching
I hear the wheels breaking, train coming

The Wonderwhy

What happens when we die
"No, don't ask questions, just make sure you survive"
Lord give me faith so I have boxes to tick
And won't have to suffer the wonderwhy

Bring on the days when I don't give a
And all I ever seek is pleasure
And I find thrill in sin and desire
And warm my toes on Hell's fire

Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

Don't leave me here
Leave me thinking for myself
When I can't remember the days of the week
The weeks of the month, and the months of the year
Where do we go, go from here
Sit writing lists and just wait for things to appear

Don't leave me here at sixes and sevens
Shot to pieces begging the heavens
Begging hellfire and rattling the gate
Starting a riot and planning escape
Baby's growing up and asking questions
Looking for help for life in lessons
Baby's growing up, a life explosion
Drinking the milk, but locking the bedroom

Don't leave me here, I'm not sold
Don't leave me here, I'm not sold

My Love is Cool

(Hidden Track)

I spied you on the tall brick wall
You sat smoking cigarettes
Teach me, teach me, teach me rock 'n' roll

No, I'm not a fighter
I'm just angry all the time
So teach me, teach me, teach me rock 'n' roll

My love bends rules
My love is cool
My love bends rules
My love is cool
La-la-la-la la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la la-la-la-la
 

 
Visions Of a Life

Heavenward

Your mum created you a small heaven
I was there just an hour
I could tell that you'd be leaving
So cruelly beyond all our power

Go heavenward
Like all earth angels should

I'm gonna celebrate you forever
You taught us things we all should learn
Yeah, I'm gonna celebrate you forever
And long to see you when it's my turn

Go heavenward
Like all earth angels should

I see you dancing on, you dancing on

Yuk Foo

Am I a bitch to not like you anymore
Punch me in my face, I wouldn't even fight you no more

'Cause you bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don't give a shit

I wanna fuck all the people I meet
Fuck all my friends and all the people in the street

'Cause you bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
Well, I don't give a shit (shit, shit, shit)

I don't wanna be cruel, but you're really grinding
I'm not a fool but I have a rage and it's blinding
I feel it coming, is it exciting
I feel it coming, yeah I'm unwinding

You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don't give a shit

You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don't give a shit

You bore me to death
No, I don't give a shit

Yeah I have feelings, 'cause I'm a human
A totally self-destructive, constantly consuming
And now I'm fucked, and that fucks you too
So fuck the world, and you, and you and you and

You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don't give a shit

You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don't give a shit

You bore me to death
No, I don't give a shit
You bore me to death
No, I don't give a shit

Beautifully Unconventional

I watch you and your friends
You stick out so sorely girl
Did you grow up a poorly girl
Girls who don't go out and play

Are you at your wits' end?
With these meaningless conversations
Well I'll tell you they test my patience
And maybe we could be friends

As light as a feather why oh
Grade A smart clever why oh
She's no Heather why oh
So I see a life together why

Hannah! She lives! She breathe!
She's beautifully unconventional
She seems to be from the best place in the world
Must be the best place in the world

Head way up in a storm cloud
Calm but so extreme
Did you ever analyze your dreams
You know nothing is what it seems

You're a walking contradiction
Cute with such conviction
But dark as the Devil who walks
And as loyal as a stalker who stalks

Changing like the weather why oh
As tough as leather why oh
Floating in the ether why oh
Friends forever why

Hannah! She lives! She breathe!
She's beautifully unconventional
She seems to be from the best place in the world
Must be the best place in the world

She's beautifully (unconventional)
I long to see (her rise above us all)
I long to be (with her forever more)
She's beautifully

As light as a feather
Grade A smart clever
Floating in the ether
Friends forever I hope

Don't Delete the Kisses

I see the signs of a lifetime, you till I die
And I'm swiftly out, Irish goodbye

What if it's not meant for me
Love
What if it's not meant for me
Love

I'd like to get to know you
I'd like to take you out
We'd go to The Hell Mary
And afterwards make out
Instead I'm typing you a message
That I know I'll never send
Rewriting old excuses
Delete the kisses at the end
When I see you, the whole world reduces
To just that room
And then I remember and I'm shy
That gossip's eye will look too soon
And then I'm trapped, overthinking
And yeah, probably self-doubt
You'd tell me to get over it
And to take you out
But I can't, I'm too scared
And here's the night-bus, I have to go
And the doors are closing and you are waving
And I like you, and I'll never let it show
And you won't wait and maybe I won't mind
I work better on my own
And now I'm home, a little bit drunk
And I ask myself

What if it's not meant for me
Love
What if it's not meant for me
Love

A few days pass since I last saw you
And you've taken over my mind
I'm retelling jokes you made that made me laugh
Pretending that they're mine
I wanna tell the whole world about you
I think that that's a sign
I'm losing self-control and it's you
It really is, one thousand times
I look at your picture and I smile!
How awful's that! I'm like a teenage girl
I might as well write all over my notebook
That you rock my world
But you do, you really do
You've turned me upside down
And that's okay, I'll let it happen
'Cause I like having you around
I'm electric! A romantic cliché!
Yeah, they really are all true
When we catch eyes at that stupid party
I know exactly what to do
I'll take your hand, and we will leave
French exits from me and you
And now I'm home, a little bit drunk
Some things don't change
And I know now that

Me and you were meant to be
In love
Me and you were meant to be
In love
Me and you

I see the signs of a lifetime
You till I die

Planet Hunter

A moment's happiness
Under the influence
I tried all night to recreate
And it was never ever gonna last long
And it was only ever gonna go wrong
And in the morning I only have myself to hate

Am I a planet hunter
Or a brave deviator
I left my mind behind in twenty fifteen

Am I a planet hunter
Or a brave deviator
I left my mind behind in twenty fifteen

A moment's madness
Compliments your innocence
I tried all night to initiate
And I only ever try to have fun
I'm only old when I don't feel young
And if you're with me, yeah
You can come, yeah, along

Am I a planet hunter
Or a brave deviator
I left my mind behind in twenty fifteen

Am I a planet hunter
Or a brave deviator
I left my mind behind in twenty fifteen

A moment's happiness
A moment's madness

Sky Musings

How high do planes fly
40.000 feet in the sky is how high
Is it the pressure cos I'm out of my mind
A compressed lack of oxygen making me high

And these nighttime plane movies
Are prompting sky musings
Life seems so confusing
Fear inducing, tears producing

Maybe it's this mini wine
Maybe it's this story line
Two people fall in love on the night of their lives
Never meet again until he's married, has a wife

And now I think of all the people I've cared for
Did love pass me by when I had feelings I was scared of
'Cause I feel so, when I should feel
I feel so, when I should feel

Stupid thoughts for a stupid girl
Look out of your window you're on top of the world
23 years old and you're acting like it's over
Only over if we crash, hit the ground down below us
If we crash, if we crash
Imagine that, if we crash

I don't wanna land no more
Sink my feet into the sand no more
I'll float forever in the interim
No place in particular
No sink or swim
Just fly
I don't understand no more
I had life figured out before
Will my head stay up in the clouds
When they open those dark and heavy metallic doors
"20 minutes before we're back on the ground"
No keep this thing going turn this fucking thing around
"Ma'am you need to wear your safety belt"
Well, wring it round my neck maybe that will help
I'm sorry
I lost my self for a minute
Could I have a glass of water

God
Is that you
I guess I'm closer up here
I could really use some help
Can you hear me
Can you hear me
New phase

Formidable Cool

He's got you on your knees
With that formidable cool
Infected you like a disease
With that formidable cool

I know it's all an act
I can practically hear the pen planning

The moment that you meet him
Your name shoots up up on the list of the deathpool
You'll find him in his seedy set up
At the community dance hall
Pink lights, flicker
His hand in somebody's knickers
He only has to look at you twice
To claim you his love fool

And I knew it was all an act
I could practically hear the pen planning
Yeah, I knew it was all an act
God never needed another stand in

Believe in the chorus
Believe in love
Believe in the chorus
Believe in love

Believe in the chorus
Relieve in my touch
I believe in the chorus
I believe in love

You listen to his lectures on life
Without one of your own
When he tells you death is pure
It reverberates right into your bones
So you ask him for information
On why you once wanted to die
And to give you satisfaction
In whatever form he likes
To heal the wounds you have
And not to open any more
But that's all he fucking did
When he fucked you on the floor

And if you knew it was all an act
Then what are you crying for
Yeah if you knew it was all an act
Then why are you crying

What did you think when you saw us
I thought it'd be fun
I believed what he taught us
I believed in love

Believed in the chorus
Relieved in his touch
I lived by the chorus
Believed in love

Space & Time

I hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind
I hate the word "forever"
I hate the word "change"
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

Take me out to the future
Just so I can look back into the past

I hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind
I hate the word "forever"
I hate the word "change"
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

Oh God I was strange now weren't I
I hope that when I look back I will laugh

I feel I'm losing control of my body
Control of my moods and my decisions and my money
I don't want to come undone
I am set to self-destruct

I hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind
I hate the word "forever"
I hate the word "change"
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

Sadboy

Who hurt you, sadboy
There's a dark cloud above your head
Who hurt you, sadboy
You act like you're already dead
But you think too much
Yeah you think too much

Who hurt you, fashion boy
There's a dark cloud above your head
Who hurt you, sadboy
You act like you're already dead
But you think too much
Probably drink too much

Bathe in that blue light baby
Cos here comes the night
Your truest friend

I was waiting
Waiting for anything to happen
Waiting for love
I was just waiting for this not to hurt

I was waiting
Waiting for anything to happen
Waiting for love
I was just waiting for this not to hurt

I was waiting
Waiting for anything to happen
Waiting for love
I was just waiting for this not to hurt

I was waiting
(What you waiting for)
Waiting for anything to happen
(What you waiting for)
Waiting for love
I was just waiting for this not to hurt

You might be changing
But you're still there
And you're still my Nana

I hope you get to the place you've seen
I heard you talk about it
You called it purple and green
There you'd get given your crown
As the smartest woman that there ever was around

You might be changing
But you're still there
And you're still my Nana

Sing me a Russian lullaby
To take me away from here
To somewhere as green as your eyes
You can with your magic spells
With the click of the fingers
And to the chime of the Bow bells

You might be changing
But you're still there
And you're still my Nana

One step after the other
One step after the other
One step after the other
One step after the other

Inside I see purple and green
One step after the other
Inside I see purple and green
One step after the other
Inside I see purple and green
One step after the other
Inside I see purple and green

After the Zero Hour

Suddenly she lost control of her world
A fire blazed and a chaos unfurled
A transcendent invitation
To the zero hour
She gave in to the temptation
High on curiosity
High on power

But this girl refused to die
So she drank the milk of life
Was it the moon and the changing tide
Yeah this girl refuses to die
So she drank the milk of life
Felt like the start of the ninth life

To feel pleasure again
To feel love
Adventurous and sensuous, as high as the planes above
Don't wait with bated breath
For this to all turn sour
She's learnt how to say yes
High on curiousity
High on power

So this girl refused to cry
But embrace her lust for life
Was it the moon and the changing tide
Yeah this girl refused to cry
But embrace her lust for life
Eyes straight ahead and open wide

Visions of a Life

The skin on my bones is leather cold
Poisoned my heart beats slow
Fear of crashing and not coming back
I'm a curse to my friends, to be condemned
Mistakes I made and won't mend
Fear of crashing and not coming back

I dream of death, its violent breath
I'm caught with my maker in step
Fear of crashing and not coming back
I could bleach clean my soul
But he knows I know I'm coming to dine in his hole
Fear of crashing and not coming back

Visions of a life
Where I was satisfied
Feed my hungry mind
Where are you when I close my eyes

I left this world behind
For the world I'd built inside
Feed my hungry mind
Where are you when I close my eyes

Why do I feel so strange
A nuclear family and friends my own age
I follow the rules, do what it says on the tin
But I'm still on the outside still looking in

Why was I born with itchy feet?
And why do I hate all the people I meet
People's ideals give me the chills to the bone
I got one thousand million friends and I feel so alone

Stay as you are
Everybody likes you
Everybody cares
There's some insight for you
I'll get my coat
I'll be the bitch
I heard that journeys end in lovers meeting
But my journey ends when my heart stops beating
I'm leaving

Stay as you are
Everybody loves you
Everybody cares
There's some insight for you
I'll get my coat
I'll be the bitch
I heard that journeys end in lovers meeting
But my journey ends when my heart stops beating
I'm leaving

Human heart in my hand
Heart in my, human heart in my hand
Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
Cut it in half, better than dead
Human heart in my hand
Heart in my, human heart in my hand
Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
Cut it in half, better than dead
Human heart in my hand
Heart in my, human heart in my hand
Taking it back, eyes straight ahead
Cut it in half, better than dead

90 Mile Beach

(Blush EP)

Look at you, you're all grown up
Don't look at me 'cause I gave up
I was waiting for us to move
I had had it all planned out
I'd worked the route and wrote it down
What did you have to lose

You owe me, yeah
You owe me, yeah

Twiddle my thumbs and hope the beasts wont find you
I love those little things that ring me alone to remind you

That you owe me, yeah
You owe me, yeah
You owe me, yeah
You owe me, yeah

Baby Ain't Made of China

(My Love Is Cool Deluxe Edition)

Baby's not made of China, baby's just sad
Tears should fall if they have to, maybe they had
God knows, she's ever grateful
Maybe she's going mad

Baby hears an echo in the back of her brain
Baby hears an echo in the back of her brain
Pills in the pound and teeth in the cheek
Maybe she's insane

Run away, where do you go
Where do you go
Run away, where do you go
Where do you go
Oh love me, make me better
Wash those tears away

Down and about in the North playing video games
See the light on the people's faces flicker and fade
There's a snake loose in the garden
But no one gives a damn

You can save for your waste of time if you like
You can save for your lover's past, are you blind?
Deep from the chest
Baby finds the best (she said)

Oh love me, make me better
Wash those tears away
Oh love me, make me better
Wash those tears away

Run away, where do you go
Where do you go
Run away, where do you go
Where do you go

Oh love me, make me better
And give me a reason to die for
Oh love me, make me better
And give me a reason to care
Oh love me, make me better
And wash those tears away

Blush

(Blush EP)

Curse the things that made me sad for so long
Yeah it hurts to think that they could still go on
I'm happy now
Are you happy now

So work out the things that you've worked out to be wrong
You got two hands to take all you can, but don't take too long
To be happy somehow
Are you happy now

Figured out I'm good
Turn me down like I knew I should
Punch drunk, dumb struck, pot luck happy happy

Don't chicken out, it's all good
You're allowed to be what you could

Punch drunk, dumb struck, pot luck happy happy
Punch drunk, dumb struck, pot luck happy happy
Punch drunk, dumb struck, pot luck happy happy

I figured out I'm good
Turn me down like I knew I should
Happy now

Don't chicken out, it's all good
You're allowed to be what you could
I feel good
I feel good
I feel good
I feel good

Curse the things that made me sad for so long
It hurts to think that that could still go on
I'm happy now
Are you happy now

Destroy Me

(Wolf Alice EP)

Maybe I got big for my boots
But those who don't love me, well they really should
You can be boring too
Today is a Sunday, well isn't it to you

Destroy me
While I wait
Sink your teeth into me
Then leave me

I think I've always feared change
Things can't get worse if they only stay the same, but
Something digs away in your pain
I guess we all have a part cause we all end up the same

Destroy me
While I wait
Sink your teeth into me
Then leave me

Tick tick tick
Yeah yeah yeah
Just like a bomb bomb bomb
We end up dead
We end up dead
Oh tick tick tick
Yeah yeah yeah
Just like a bomb bomb bomb bomb
We end up dead
Should should should
Just like you said you could
Things aren't going far from where I'm stood

Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't go away

Every Cloud

(My Love Is Cool Deluxe Edition)

Last touch
Let loose
Taunted
Got the blues

In a bad space
In a bad place
Know every cloud
I will change

Last touch
Let loose
Taunted
Got the blues

In a bad space
In a bad place
Know every cloud
I will change

Ghoster

(Ghostbusters OST)

I come alive
When I'm faced with a fight
It's the only situation
I can ever be on time
And I go wild
Faced with creatures of the night
You feel the pain, I'll make you spooked
But what I see is a scary sight

I fought demons in my head
That's when I was truly scared
But faced with death
I feel powerful, yeah
I fought demons in my head
That's when I was truly scared
But faced with death
I feel powerful, yeah

And I feel fine
To leave this world behind
That's the only situation
We can make it out alive
I see tears in your eyes
Fear leaves you paralysed
But fear spurs me on
It boils my blood, it's electro hot

I fought demons in my head
That's when I was truly scared
But faced with death
I feel powerful, yeah
I fought demons in my head
That's when I was truly scared
But faced with death
I feel powerful, yeah

Good Riddance

(Green Day / NME Live)

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still-frames in your mind
Hang them on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoo's of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

It's something unpredictable
But in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life

Heavenly Creatures

(Creature songs EP)

We loved the pictures in our passports
Your hair is cold and I look shy
This is not a lot to ask for
Just to pray, to pray that this would be the time

Time to die
Time to kill
Time will fly
Time will heal
All for love
All for you
God's the judge
Love is true

It's time to die
Time to kill
Time will fly
Time will heal
All for love
All for you
God's the judge
Love is true

Was it never enough that we should simply want to be together
Was it never enough that we should simply want to be together
Together, together, together

There'll be nothing left to be afraid of
Because everything else means nothing at all
Clear your thorns for your halo
I'll be your shadow, don't fear a fall

Time to die
Time to kill
Time will fly
Time will heal
All for love
All for you
God's the judge
Love is true

It's time to die
Time to kill
Time will fly
Time will heal
All for love
All for you
God's the judge
Love is true

Was it never enough that we should simply want to be together
Was it never enough that we should simply want to be together
Together, together, together

I'm A Disaster

(Demo & Unreleased)

This is a disaster
But that runs through my head and runs through my blood
And when I run the other way
Heh-hey
Catch me up and pull me down
And force this blush upon my face
And when I run the other way

They catch me up and pull me down
I already know before I've hit the ground
That when I stand up and I turn around
It will be the girl with blonde hair and all her friends that I'm scared of
If only the ground would eat me up
If it was a choice you know I'd take it up
My nose is running so much that it in my hair
And the boy I liked, well, of course he's there

This is a disaster
But that runs through my head and run through my blood
And when I run the other way hey
Catch me up and pull me down
And Force this blush upon my face
And while I run the other way

Going red and feeling pretty blue
You body's what tell me things like this are made for you
They're hot and they sting as they run down my face
And this is the place I have to be every day
Oh, every day how will I return
But I want my praise and I want to learn
Give me the answers and tell me it straight
Is there something as unlucky as such thing as fate

This is a disaster
But that runs through my head and runs through my blood
And when I run the other way
Catch me up and pull me down
And force this blush upon my face
And while I run the other way

I Saw You (In a Corridor)

(My Love Is Cool Deluxe Edition)

If I get there before you
I will wait at the gate
I should tell you I adore you
You walk by, I walk in late

I saw you when I knew
I wanted nothing more and nothing different
Nothing more and nothing different

If you get there before me
Call me up, we'll met in five
I wish you, you would want me
Wasting times not wasting time

I saw you when I knew
I wanted nothing more and nothing different
Nothing more and nothing different

I saw you

Leaving You

(My Love Is Cool Deluxe Edition)

I will wear my hair
The way he likes me to
And I will play the game
The way he would want me to

But I'm leaving you
I'm leaving you
It's been a long time coming
That I've been afraid
Of how to live the life that I have made
I have made

I will lead the life, my dad
And he said I could
You won't need, you won't need to know
You never had

So I'm leaving you
I'm leaving you
It's been a long time coming
Of how to live the life that I have made
I have made

Matilda

(Alt-J/ BBC Live Lounge)

Just like Johnny Flynn said
The breath I've taken and the one I must to go on
Put the grenade pin in your hand
So you understand who's boss

My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success
Oh this is from
This is from
This is from Matilda

Just like Johnny Flynn said
The breath I've taken and the one I must to go on
Put the grenade pin in your hand
So you understand who's boss

My defeat sleeps top to toe with her success
Oh this is from

And she needs you
This is for Matilda
And she needs you

Moaning Lisa Smile

(Creature songs EP)

Clinging to love, escape her father and mother
She hopes there's some other way out of the hole
She's overachieving, chasing her dreams
And coming down slowly, yeah it's out of control

Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
Flash your teeth, though the inside hurts
Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
Does it make you feel better just because you feel worse

All of the books and all of the blood and
Nowhere to run 'cause it's out of control
You wait for something to undo these feelings
Waiting and waiting but it's out of control

Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
Flash your teeth, though the inside hurts
Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
Does it make you feel better just because you feel worse

It never is enough
No, it never is enough
It never is enough
No, it never is enough

Nosedive

(Blush EP)

We fail making beats for you to dance to
We fail making rhymes to romance to
We failed on our making it naked all right
We fail making beats for you to dance to
We fail making rhymes to romance to
We failed on our making it naked all right

Nosedive
Nosedive
Nosedive
Nosedive

I've got a fiver in a pocket somewhere

I don't care if this takes me no where
I won't, and you won't, we won't ask why

Nosedive
Nosedive
Nosedive
Nosedive

You play the drums
You play the drums and we'll make the rhymes
Figured it out

Who's there
Who cares

Go out and dance
I can dance if you do too
Gimme the five
We have our love and we'll be all right

Who's there
Who cares

Roar

(Katy Perry/ Live NME Session)

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground

You held me down, but I got up
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am the champion
And you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion
And you're gonna hear me roar

Now I'm floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am the champion
And you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion
And you're gonna hear me roar

You're gonna hear me roar
You're gonna hear me roar

Santa Baby

(Spotify Singles: Holiday)

Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree
For me
I been an awful good girl
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too
Light blue
I'll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you'll check off my Christmas list

Santa baby, I want a yacht
And really that's not a lot
I been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need
The deed
To a platinum mine
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me

Santa honey, fill my stocking with a duplex
And checks
Sign your 'X' on the line
Santa honey, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing
A ring
I don't mean on the phone
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight

She

(Blush EP)

Made dirty, blade don't care
I'll take anything
Watch me

Take what you will
Wear like a stain
Always think of her
'Cause she was sent for

It's so easy to rebel
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
And then celebrate myself
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I wish she was like you
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I wish I was you
(She knows)

She's got a boyfriend in a band
And they do more than just hold hands
So so quiet, so so pretty
From the country, loves the city

I'm a city girl, born and raised
Dust in the cracks and filled with rage

Well, you can be my second hand
My soft coo coo when I go to bed
Do you tell lies, do you do tricks
Do you hate your dad, is your mum a bitch
So quiet and pretty
She's laughing, really

I had a lover, I had a friend
I don't deliver nothing for them
You're having fevers or bad dreams
I'm having neither, just live and breathe

I had a lover, I had a friend
I don't deliver nothing for them
You're having fevers or bad dreams
I'm having neither, just live and breathe

It's so easy to rebel
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
And then celebrate myself
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I wish she was like you
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I wish she was like you
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I wish I was you
(She knows)

Song to the Siren

(Spotify Singles)

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle

And you sang
"Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you"
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me
Were you hare when I was fox
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks
For you sing
"Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
O my heart, o my heart, shies from the sorrow"

I am puzzled as the oyster
I am troubled as the tide
Should I stand amid your breakers
Should I lie with death my bride
Hear me sing, 'Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you

Steal My Girl

(One Direction / Radio 1 Live Lounge)

She been my queen
Since we were sixteen
We want the same things
We dream the same dreams
Alright, alright

I got it all
'Cause she is the one
Her mum calls me "love"
Her dad calls me "son"
Alright, alright

I know, I know
I know for sure

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Kisses like cream
Her walk is so mean
And every jaw drop
When she's in those jeans
Alright

I don't exist
If I don't have her
The sun doesn't shine
The world doesn't turn
Alright, alright

She knows, she knows
That I've never let her down before
She knows, she knows
That I'm never gonna let another take her love from me now

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one 'cause she belongs to me

She belongs to me
She belongs to me

Storms

(Creature songs EP)

I read my name on the bar front door
I once yearned
Afraid to seek more

Close my eyes on this violet night
I'm still here
Dead in your life

Time doesn't slow
The world won't lend hands
What you've got to show
And who are your friends

Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends

For black paint says nobody cares
That I was here
Yeah, I'm full well aware

That I'm a slave to my demons
And my demons are dead
Excuses to stay, and my demon's my friend

So fight me, find me
Send me an angel

Time doesn't slow
The world won't lend hands
What you've got to show
And who are your friends

Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends, your friends
Your friends

Your friends
Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey

Wednesday

(Wolf Alice EP)

Remember your mother, but leave her behind
There are things you should wait for, and there's things you should find
No one gets younger and no one gets wise
There's a room I remember and a room to make mind

You keep your fingers crossed, and wear the charms that you've created
It's getting over me that we should love that ones that we have hated
There's things that make me stronger, you don't get back the time you wasted
I'll remember this at night when all the memories are fading

The things that makes us sad, we can't always escape
'Cause there's these things that I have had and have kept for old times sake
It's the fear of change, and screwing up, having no tradition
Cause there's excuses to keep throwing up, and clutches like obsessions

I remember being small and I remember all the ambition
If I had kept up with that dream would I be in this position?
In darker trousers we would bring cause the dark can be deceiving
And I'll remember this at night when all the memories are leaving

I'll remember this at night
I'll remember
I'll remember this at night
I'll remember

I'll remember this at night
I'll remember
I'll remember this at night
I'll remember

Remember your mother, but leave her behind
There are things you should wait for, and there's things you should find
No one gets younger and no one gets wise
There's a room I remember and a room to make mind

You keep your fingers crossed, and wear the charms that you've created
It's getting over me that we should love the ones that we have hated
There are things that make me stronger, you don't get back the time you wasted
I'll remember this at night when all the memories are fading

We're Not The Same

(Creature songs EP)

Long live, you're amazing
Long live, I am strange
We'll walk Mondays together
Your way

Well, aren't you feeling brave
We're not the same
You and I
Oh, what a shame
Bye-bye
We're not the same
You and I
Oh, what a shame
Bye-bye

Meet me at queen Caroline
I'll meet you anywhere
Left me down and broken
Your way

Well, aren't you feeling scared
We're not the same
You and I
Oh, what a shame
Bye-bye
We're not the same
You and I
Oh, what a shame
Bye-bye

White Leather

(My Love Is Cool Deluxe Edition)

I bought a drink for you
But you were smoking with your friends outside
And I see big things for you
I made plans for you and I

I scream screams for us
'Cause I have dreams of bigger stuff
And in them sometimes it happens
Tell me when I'm gonna get what I want

Get what I want
And forget who I was
And I'm away

I saw you pass me by
No hello not even a smile
And I say a silent goodbye, goodbye

I bought a drink for you
But you were a smoking with your friends outside
And I see big things for you
I'm on my own at least for a while

And I'm away

Wicked Game

(Chris Isaac / Live from Spotify London)

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

What a wicked game to play to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

And I, I don't wanna fall in love
No I don't wanna fall in love, with you
With you
This world is only gonna break your heart
This world is only gonna break your heart

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

And I, I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I, I don't wanna fall in love, with you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you

Years & Years

(Desire / Radio 1 Live Lounge)

I must be tough
I must behave, I must keep fighting
Don't give it up
I want to keep us compromising

Open your arms and pray
To the truth that you're denying
Give in to the game
To the sense that you've been hiding

Where are you taking me
I can't be blamed
I want you to want me again

Is it desire
Or is it love that I'm feeling for you
I want desire
'Cause your love only gets me abused

Give me that rush
I want to show you what you've been missing
Am I enough
To keep your other lovers hidden

Where are you taking me
I can't be blamed
I want you to want me again

Is it desire
Or is it love that I'm feeling for you
I want desire
'Cause your love only gets me abused

Is it desire
Or is it love that I'm feeling for you
I want desire
'Cause your love only gets me abused

You and You Me

Wait, I'll help you, just wait
For me to catch up with you
Upon my head I could save
You and you me
You could be there for me
You and you me
You could be there for me

There's silence out there
And love is out here
So I spend hours in my bed
What's not my youth
Other's eyes and other's minds
And people's thoughts you don't want to find
I will, I will let it show
For lucky we are
But the words that come out
For me I see people, for you you see me
I want to believe what I want to see, so

Wait, I'll help you, just wait
For me to catch up with you
Upon my head I could save
You and you me
You could be there for me
You and you me
You could be there for me
