Real Lies – DiCaprio Lyrics

It’s not the first time for me, you know But yours is the last new face I wanna see This close up Cos in truth I can’t believe my luck Outside, the city surf falls… With the pink skies through the window And your long hairs curl on the bed sheets Like living signatures Do you remember? That second Nessun Dorma summer That was when I knew That all my singing birds were home The pub was full of nervous noise Aggression leaking out of men But I carried you away from their banging drums Bad drugs and insufficient funds This is the city we live in The city living in my skin It’s a wounded, wounding thing Used to live like DiCaprio

Real Lies – Your Guiding Hand Lyrics

A rainswept city vista, circa 6AM The kind of light they find you in Since they became too light to touch It’s so hard to take, but they took too much Those friends of mine went up to join the guiding hand More gutter dust, sucked in from the shadowlands Waiting here so patient for absent friends In a sinking city, circa 6AM When it all falls down, here in my heart you’ll never drown In the rain of London town, your guiding hand reaches out Coming down, back to your yard, see who’s around When it all comes falling down, your guiding hand reaches out Your guiding hand reaches out… Came back claiming your home turf Like a firework falling back to Earth A rainswept city vista, circa 6AM Your guiding hand is leading me astray again Through the piss-stained alleyways to the late blocks, teeming Lockjaw data boys and girls screaming, ‘Don’t go dreaming…’ I long for days that eased in through the trees With Capris and bad Es and allotments in the breezes swayed In the low violet light that hu

Real Lies – The Carousel Lyrics

Read the forecast in the Racing Post Five grey days waiting off the coast There’s a carousel that came to stay Takes me off so far away Where parts of you get left behind Like socks on the washing line And I wonder if I’ll ever be Away from you, and you from me When I get the money back I’m gonna sell, I’m gonna focus more on living well Oh, sometimes it’s hard to tell If you could call me back then I’d be there as well And if I don’t get off the scene I fear I won’t know where I’ve been upon the carousel Oh, it’s so hard to tell That you ruin my life, that you ruin my life And if I keep on running back I’m gonna fail, I’m gonna sail away on diving bells Oh, sometimes it’s hard to tell Until you’re calling in the dawn in Camberwell And if I don’t get off the scene I fear I won’t know where I’ve been upon the carousel Oh, it’s so hard to tell That you ruin my life Read the forecast in the Racing Post May as well give up the ghost Now the carousel is on its way Takes me off to breaking d

Real Lies – Since I Lyrics

They tore the tongue from the town Had the nerve to shed tears for the underground Still need somewhere to come up now the club’s shut down Aha, ha! My heart lifts off the backseat, joins the bedtime birds Numbers rule my life but I’m a man of words But round her it surges like I can’t describe Sin, sin, since I Since I heard your name I’ve been coming alive The lines of your fingers Can we head to mine? Since I Sin, sin, since I Left you late At Sunday light It’s a city changing A shadow play of what it was It’s a different type of hedonist that wears a crown Rave echoes are the currency in shutdown town A sadlad reminiscence with the SoundCloud out Aha, ha I’m a caller you can count on in the fading light I’m a counter you can call on in the dead of night Young yearning, burning earnings When the time is right… Since I Sin, sin, since I The roads are on surge but the urge has spoken As one door shuts, another opens Least till tomorrow when the spell is broken Aha, ha… If I were you,

Real Lies – All Good Dogs Lyrics

How many big moments go astray? My away days bring me silence, but your smile says I can stay Take this loving violence with your hands up Show you still surprise me, dancer All these old regrets are now taken from me Gives me licence just to say “Put one on me” Found you in the night, check you over It’s a sign, it’s a sign, it’s a sign, it’s a sign Worked a midnight shift, but I’ll be home by 7 Walk tonight ‘Cause all good dogs go to heaven Worked a midnight shift, but I’ll be home by 7 Walk tonight ‘Cause all good dogs go to heaven How do you feel about me six years on? I get thoughtless with my feelings as the times move on “Do you dream about me?” I’ll say “Will you dream about me, some day?” I hate the way they say “Nothing’s perfect” When you look at me that way What are we, the audience or the show? Do the city lights watch us as we grow? Worked a midnight shift, but I’ll be home by 7 Walk tonight ‘Cause all good dogs go to heaven Worked a midnight shift, but I’ll be home by 7

Real Lies – Dolphin Junction Lyrics

RIP Jack. Sleep well, Rory. Hometown hearts, taken young… There was a pact we made that we’d stay friends for life One humid summer night Then you left town Cos your mum kept breaking down So did your poor heart start to feel like an arcade? With all the pills we’d take… Till the lads got flowered up Married off to floral tributes From the closing shops In a rattling car the four of us took flight Driving high as kites To your new town Cos your world was falling down… again… And if we made it there, we’d take you by surprise Shake off the suicide Our laughter fogged the windows up But there was no more laughter after We called you, and the line was cut Wide-eyed teenhood. Suburban dust. Sapphire cider tubs, dead Rizla skins, Micky Finn tape packs, red Mitsis and Doves. We got lost in your city. So rang back through the rain. But a stranger told us you’d gone away. And we never heard from you again. Won’t wait to make my mind up I’d find you with both eyes shut Left on the corner for lo

Real Lies – Late Arcades Lyrics

There’s a palace that I know All night shining, grinning gold Gives me neon by the sea Gives me pennies I can feed We saw poor Jimmy’s eyeballs swivel in their slots The toxic logic after shots of Aftershock You feeling good, yeah, have you got that penny drop? You wanna stay out picking petals off the clock? The hot pink drizzle breathes Drains the rain out to the sea From the city From the city… There’s a new flame that I know Just the first name in a phone Are you rainfall? Just like me… Is she drizzle? Is she dreams? Well, I went down in stages to the estuary And I spent all my wages in a palace of dreams Could these Fight Night bright lights ever lie to me? Monte Carlo, NYC… heard you’re looking for me Down the late arcades There’s a sad song that I know Baby D or the Big O There’s an aching I can’t feed There’s a feeling that I need Well, I went down in stages to the estuary And I spent all my wages in a palace of dreams Could these Fight Night-bright lights ever lie to me? Monte

Real Lies – Dream On Lyrics

A deep end to shallow weeks A look that I’ve been seeking Since the skies fell on my world ‘She’s arrived,’ I say Likes the taste Late licence of a girl Could you ever see, beside me, second nights? Do you ever like and cease? Did you ever for a second reckon I’d be setting down My days of speed? Would you, girl? Could you come and save my world? Could you, girl? I was on the way alone… Blue, blue world… dreamt that I was hours old Years of love, took a second: I was sold Do you ever lie awake? Are you levitating? Did the skies fall on your world? Are you and I the same… Endless faith In the rush of other worlds? Have you counted every siren in the night? Does the longing let you breathe? Did you ever for a second reckon I’d be setting down My days of speed? There’s a queue There is a booth There is a room There are people There are lights There is noise There is you There are you… With your eyes, suddenly like skylights It’s a feeling I’ve not felt at all This is something far more vi

Real Lies – An Oral History Of My First Kiss Lyrics

An Oral History Of My First Kiss Lyrics by Real Lies   Just the lightest touch, the falling drizzle found Weekend wet look kids lost in an orange ticket town Just another candy floss sunset I’m trying to come of age, can we change the subject? To the powders and the chemicals Just talking hypotheticals! Thirteen on a village green – you sure your source is credible? Are we gonna do what we want yet? We never get to. Does that make you upset? Cos they only come here for the free flats and the benefits OK… And watch their kids drown on the way just for the hell of it Uh huh… reading team news in the Saturday ‘papers I tape the chart rundown. I’ll change the order later But there must be a place where things fucking happen A hidden frequency that guides you there across macadam Just another candy floss sunset… Wish I could come of age, too shy to meet your gaze Well, I went home worried it was something that we’d both regret She’s got a hot pink clipper and a twenty-deck of cigarettes Spe

Real Lies – Boss Trick Lyrics

(The feel of your warm embrace) (The feel of your warm embrace) Sat down in the crown, pushing suds around Watching the navvies mourn the 315 from Punchestown A cloud of memory surrounds Two wanderers from Woodberry Down I felt like I was part of something (The feel of your warm embrace) And for that, I’ll say this I’ve never been a part of something (The feel of your warm embrace) So bliss to reminisce King says at the bar you’re coming down The instant chemistry is calling And it’s live, just like you said, your sound We stayed up with The Fall, neighbors banging all four walls New friends in the sprawl, the faces pushing past I felt like I was part of something (The feel of your warm embrace) For that, I’ll say this I’ve never been a part of something (The feel of your warm embrace) It’s so bliss to reminisce Twenty thousand streets beneath the stars and they’re all ours We found magic in the parlance of the passing cars Do you remember crashing house parties in France? Watching gir

Real Lies – Ethos Lyrics

Skylights search the night Got a head like a train wreck But you’re dressed up sharp as knives And you’re not going home yet From the corridors of Whitehall To the stolen towers of Battersea All I know is that I won’t go to bed alone Faces pouring past us Got big love for the lost boys We never do so don’t ask us Hear the cracks in your voice From the human potential of this space To the wincing brakes of city trains All I know is that I won’t go to bed alone Take me out driving In the land of all roads At home there’s too much silence And the dark comes too close From the towns beyond the barriers To the places we once played All I know is that I can’t go to bed alone All pile in for this party Some rich girl in Wanstead We’ll finish if you start it Say the scars on my head From crisp suburban mornings To endless city nights All I know is that I won’t go to bed alone There’s something new about you I wish I could do better Burn money like the KLF I am the great upsetter A one-man gang
