The Dodos – Fools

The Dodos are probably one of my favourite bands ever. Here’s a song I was listening to last night when I was falling asleep it’s too good.

LYRICS that mean something πŸ™‚

Our fathers have been entangled in things
He’s been squandering, he’s been squandering
And we don’t do a thing, ’cause we’re busy and think
We’re just wandering, we’re just a-wandering like fools

His son is his prize, he tells a few lies
He’s got his father’s eyes, it’s in his father’s eyes
And he thinks in his mind that he’s just getting by
But he’s a compromise, he’s just a compromising fool

And the stance that we take isn’t much to bear
Yeah, we leave things to change on their time
And our failure to care for it leaves us blind
’til we’re tired and we’re crazed in the mind

Now he lies on his back, and they tell him it’s that
It’s just a heart attack, it’s just a heart attack
Too late to return to the ones that you’ve earned
No they don’t give it back, no they don’t give it back to fools

And the stance that we take isn’t much to bear
Yeah, we leave things to change on their time
And our failure to care for it leaves us blind
’til we’re tired and we’re crazed in the mind

I’ve been, I’ve been silent

The Dodos – Black Night

LOVE this song like I love strawberry liquorice- unconditionally and forever!

LYRICS because if you’re like me you listen to the song then you listen to the song while reading the lyrics then you decide if your throat got tight from the amazingness of it or your foot started tapping from dance potential. That dear reader is the Anna-Lisa judging scale, it is very precise and hardly ever wrong πŸ™‚

I’m having a musical heaven day, everything I listened to today made me happy! Maybe it’s the Friday factor but I like to think everyday is just getting better and better.

HEARTS!

Black night, blackness
When I wanted you, how I haunted you
All to myself
One gift, one slip
Where you hiding at, who your aiming at
Won’t kiss and tell

Control yourself
I don’t want it to, I don’t need it to
Can someone else
Counting until
When you’re heading to, ’cause your attitude
Turn on itself

Kind heart, kindness
Where you going to, are you going through
Heaven or hell
Won’t slip, won’t miss
When I’m on to you, send it over to
Your faith in hell

Control yourself
I don’t want it to, I don’t need it to
Contain itself
Counting until
It was never that, I was aiming at
It means someone else
Ha! (x8)

You want it all. You want to walk. You want to walk.
Crack through it
You had it all. You had it all. You had it all

You threw it
You want it all. You want to walk. You want to walk.
Crack through it.
You had it all. You had it all. You had it all
You threw it

Black night, blackness
When I wanted you, how I haunted you
All to myself
One kiss, one slip
Where you going to, are you going through
Heaven or hell

Control yourself
I don’t want it to, I don’t need it to
Can someone else
Counting Until
When you need it to, ’cause your attitude
Turn on itself

You want it all. You want to walk. You want to walk
Crack through it
You had it all, you had it all, you had it all
You threw it
You want it all. You want to walk. You want to walk
Crack through it
You had it all, you had it all, you had it all
You threw it
