The 1975

Go down
Soft sound
Midnight
Car lights
Playing with the air
Breathing in your hair
Go down
Soft sound
Step into your skin? I'd rather jump in your bones
Taking up your mouth, so you breathe through your nose.

The City

Don't call it a fight when you know it's a war.
With nothing but your t-shirt on.
And go sit on the bed 'cause I know that you want to.
You got pretty eyes, but I know you're wrong.

And don't call it a spade if it isn't a spade.
And go lie on the floor if you want.
The first bit of advice that you gave me that I liked was they're too strong, too strong.
Get in the shower if it all goes wrong.

Yeah, If you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]

Yeah counting cards was the best job he ever had.
Cleaning up.
He got good with his 4"²s and his 2"²s.
Community service was the best job he ever had.
Cleaning up.
He got sick on the floor and his shoes.

Oh and she said "It's your birthday,
Are you feeling alright?"
The next one's the MD.
You'll be feeling just fine.
Your brother is just sat there,
You said you felt snide.
You hope that that boy will be alright.

Yeah, If you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]

Yeah well she said "It's your birthday,
Are you feeling alright?"
The next one's the MD.
You'll be feeling just fine.
Your brother is just sat there,
You said you felt snide.
You hope that that boy will be alright.

Yeah, If you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]

M.O.N.E.Y.

Drink slow to feed the nose
You know he likes to get blown
Has he got enough money to spend?
Leave? No. He's to and fro
He doesn't like it when the girls go
Has he got enough money to spend?

It's going off cause they're not gonna let him in
2 and a half, the boy is rushing out his skin
He's got his charm with the girls that are smoking
He takes her arm, jumps the bar and now he's in

Drink slow to feed the nose
You know he likes to get blown
Has he got enough money to spend?
Leave? No. He's to and fro
He doesn't like it when the girls go
Has he got enough money to spend?

A broken half a glass has opened up his chin
He thinks he's hard, a powdered mouth that tastes of gin
He's just been barred for that blues he was smoking
And then he barks: it's my car I'm sleeping in

Tabs with unlimited 0's
New clothes
Bloody nose
Powders and walking back home
Has he got enough weed?
No
Broken phone
Retching on the floor alone
I can't believe that we're talking about him

"I'm searching you mate, your jaw's all over the place"
Can't talk, a quick slap in the face
Yes I threw a nut but your friend's a case
Why you singling him out? Is it because of his race?
"Look, the dog won't bark if you don't lark about"

M-O-N-E-Y'S ME
M-O-N-E-Y
M-O-N-E-Y'S ME
M-O-N-E-Y

M-O-N-E
M-O-N-E
M-O-N-E-Y

M-O-N-E-Y'S ME
M-O-N-E-Y

Chocolate

Hey now call it a spliff 'cause you know that you will
Oh you bite your friend like chocolate
You say, we'll go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

Now run, run away from the boys in the blue, and my car smells like chocolate
Hey now I think about what you do, I think about what they say, I think about how to think
Pause it, play it, pause it, play it, pause it

Oh we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it. no we're never gonna quit it no

Now you're never gonna quit it, Now you're never gonna quit it, Now you're never gonna quit it
If you don't start smoking it, that's what she said
She said we're dressed in black, head to toe, with guns hidden under our petticoats
And we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

Hey now we're building up speed as we're approaching the hill
My hair smells like chocolate
Hey now you say you're gonna quit it but you're never gonna quit it
Go get it, go get it, go get it, go get it, go
And play it cool!

Oh and you said we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black, from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
We're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

[2x]
Well I think we better go,
Serious you better go
Said the feds are here you know
Serious you better go, oh oh,
Well I think we better go
Said the feds are here you know
Said Rebbecca better know
Serious you better go

We go where nobody knows, guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe, guns hidden under our petticoats
We're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
No no no

Well I think we better go,
Serious you better go
Said the feds are here you know
Serious you better go, oh oh,
Well I think we better go
Said the feds are here you know
Said Rebbecca better know
Serious you better go

Sex

And this is how it starts
Take your shoes off in the back of my van
Yeah my shirt looks so good,
When it's just hanging off your back
And she said, "Use your hands and my spare time—
We've got one thing in common, it's this tongue of mine."
She said
She's got a boyfriend anyway

there's only minutes before I drop you off
All we seem to do is talk about sex
She's got a boyfriend anyway
She's got a boyfriend anyway

I loved your friend when I saw his film
He's got a funny face
But I like that 'cause he still looks cool
She's got a boyfriend anyway
She's got a boyfriend anyway

Now we're on the bed in my room
And I'm about to fill his shoes
But you say no
You say no
Does he take care of you
Or could I easily fill his shoes?
But you say no
You say no

And now we're just outside of town
And you're making your way down
She's got a boyfriend anyway
She's got a boyfriend anyway

And I'm not trying to stop you love
If we're gonna do anything we might as well just f*ck
She's got a boyfriend anyway
She's got a boyfriend anyway

You've got your tongue pierced anyway
You're in your high tops any day
You're in your skinny jeans anyway

You and your fit friends anyway
I'd take them all out any day
They've all got backcombs anyway
You've all got boyfriends anyway

Talk!

Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?
Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?

Passing grammatical mistakes
Totally wrecked and polemic in the way he talks
Vocal sabbatical, delayed by churning out the same

Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?
Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?

We don't got alarms we just use my dad's arms
Excess until we stop hearts
I think you're trying too hard with your lungs in tar
And your kitchen full of pop stars

And I've been thinking lots about your mouth
A conversation superseded by the way he talks
I'd be an anchor but I'm scared you'd drown
It's safer on the ground

Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?
Why you talk so loud?
Why you talk so?

Passing grammatical mistakes
Totally wrecked and polemic in the way he talks
Vocal sabbatical, delayed by churning out the same

(Why you talk so loud?)
And I've been thinking lots about your mouth
(Why you talk so?)
A conversation superseded by the way he talks
(Why you talk so loud?)
I've been thinking lots about your mouth
(Why you talk so?)

An Encounter

Heart Out

Rushing in a small town
I forgot to call you
I'm running low on know how
With this beat I made for two

Cause I remember that I like you
No matter what I found
She said, "It's nice to have your friends round
But we're watching the television with no sound"

It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?
It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?

Push your lack of chest out, look at my hair
Gotta love the way you love yourself
Your obsession with rocks and brown
And f*cking the whole town's
A reflection on your mental health

Cause I remember when I found you
Much younger than you are now
And once we started having friends round
You created a television of your mouth

It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?
It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?

You got something to say?
Why don't you speak it out loud, instead of living in your head?
It's always the same.
Why don't you take your heart out, instead of living in your head?

It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?
It's just you and I tonight
Why don't you figure my heart out?

Settle Down

A soft sound
To the way that she wears her hair down
Covering up her face.
And oh what a let down,
And I don't seem to be having any effect now
Falling all over the place.

But you're losing your words
We're speaking in bodies
Avoiding me and talking 'bout you.
But you're losing your turn
I guess I'll never learn
'Cause I stay another hour or two.

For crying out loud, settle down!
You know I can't be found with you
We get back to my house
Your hands, my mouth
Now I just stop myself around you.

A small town
Dictating all the people we get around
What a familiar face.
Do you get what I mean now?
I'm so fixated on the girl with the soft sound
And hair all over the place.

And you're sure that I'd learn
I'm pushing through bodies
Avoiding me and walking 'round you.
And you're cold and I burn
I guess I'll never learn
'Cause I stay another hour or two.

For crying out loud, settle down!
You know I can't be found with you
We get back to my house
Your hands, my mouth
Now I just stop myself around you.

A soft sound
And to the way she wears her hair down
Covering up her face.
And oh what a let down,
I don't seem to be having any effect now
Falling all over the place.

But you're losing your words
We're speaking in bodies
Avoiding me and talking 'bout you.
And you're losing your turn
I guess I'll never learn
'Cause I stay another hour or two.

For crying out loud, settle down!
You know I can't be found with you
We get back to my house
Your hands, my mouth
Now I just stop myself around you.

For crying out loud!

Robbers

She had a face straight outta magazine
God only knows but you'll never leave her
Her balaclava is starting to chafe
And when she gets his gun he's begging, "Babe, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay."

I'll give you one more time
We'll give you one more fight
Said one more line
Will I know you

Now if you never shoot, you'll never know
And if you never eat, you'll never grow
You've got a pretty kind of dirty face
And when she's leaving your home she's begging you, "Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay."

I'll give you one more time
We'll give you one more fight
Said one more line
Be a riot, cause I know you

Well, now that you've got your gun
It's much harder now the police have come
Now I'll shoot him if it's what you ask
But if you just take off your mask
You find out everything's gone wrong.

Now everybody's dead
And they're driving past my old school
He's got his gun, he's got his suit on
She says, "Babe, you look so cool, you look so cool, you look so cool, cool, cool, cool
You look so cool, you look so cool, you look so cool, cool, cool, cool, cool."

Girls

Bite your face to spite your nose
17 and a half years old
Worrying about my brother finding out
What's the fun in doing what you're told?

I said, "No!"
"Oh give it a rest, I could persuade you"
"I'm not your typical, stoned 18 year old
Give me a night I'll make you"
"I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age, but girl I'm not your savior."
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

A pair of frozen hands to hold,
Oh she's so southern so she feels the cold,
One moment I was tearing off your blouse,
Now you're living in my house.
What happened to just messing around?

I said, "Yo, I think you better go; I can't take you."
"You just sit and get stoned with 30 year olds and you think you've made it."
"Well, shouldn't you be f*cking with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

I told her from the start
Destined to be hard
I told her from the start
I'll break your heart
Destined to be hard
I'll break your heart

I said, "Yo, I think you better go; I can't take you."
"I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age, but girl I'm not your savior."
"Well, shouldn't you be f*cking with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
Wrestle to the ground
God help me now because

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

'Cause they're just girls...
Just girls, they're just girls...

She Way Out

With a face from a movie scene
Or magazine, you know what I mean
She's definitely got the style on you
She's definitely got the style on you

She's got two-tone everything
Moving but she just can't move
She's got two phones, everything, you
Moving but she just can't move

Because "she way out"
I've never seen her dance moves - dancing like "she way out"
"She way out"
I've never seen her talk but I'm telling you "she way out"

She said "It's not about your body it's just social implications are
Brought upon by this party that we're sitting in"
And "I'd like to say you've changed but you're always the same.
I've got a feeling that the marijuana's rotting your brain"

She's got two-tone everything - way too intelligent
Moving but she just can't move
She's got two phones, everything.
Boyfriend,
Telling him "Find me cause I'll never find you"

Because "she way out"
I've never seen her dance moves - dancing like "she way out"
"She way out"
I've never seen her talk but I'm telling you "she way out"
[x2]

The tension is overflowing with every Benson
She's throwing on the floor and in my mouth
She said "I'd love you to stay but that's simply insane -
I've got a feeling that my friends are gonna kick in your brain"
Because...

"She way out"
I've never seen her dance moves - dancing like "she way out"
"She way out"
I've never seen her talk but I'm telling you "she way out"
[x2]

Menswear

"Well I only brought 3, what you lookin' at me for?"
She's dressed in white and putting off crying.

"Well you're the best man, so what's the plan?
Why don't you talk to Matty about it?"

I said, "I only brought 3 like I told you before,
We're gonna have to ask about."

Free bar, that's the point.
Spilling Amaretto 'cause of previous joints.
I'm sitting with a girl, fortunate placing.
Preceding railing racket off a porcelain basin.
Who's he? Giving it the lips?
I've never seen him knockin' about.
He looks just like me, but 6 foot 3,
So I reckon you could knock him out.

"Well, I think I'll say a couple of words if you don't mind...
I never really got on with your bird the first time
I met her out, dressed in nowt, telling everybody you were shagging about."

Well, who's this? Going for the kiss,
I'm probably gonna yosh in your mouth.
Because it's 5 past 3, I can hardly see and I'm on the verge of passing out.

Pressure

You've seen so many faces that I've never seen before.
I left an un-rewarding message telling you to come on
Over dramatic, automatically assume I'll stay the same.

There's a change in pressure
We're never gonna lie to you.
(Change in pressure)
My broken veins say that if my heart stops beating
(Change in pressure)
"We'll bleed the same way"
(Change in pressure)
Oh, my broken veins say.

Well I stay tuned, listen to the news and try to fall asleep at night.
Because I'm living in a house with just three walls,
So I'm always getting recognized.

There's a change in pressure
We're never gonna lie to you.
(Change in pressure)
My broken veins say that if my heart stops beating
(Change in pressure)
"We'll bleed the same way"
(Change in pressure)
Oh, my broken veins say.

(Change in pressure) [x4]

There's a change in pressure
We're never gonna lie to you.
(Change in pressure)
My broken veins say that if my heart stops beating
(Change in pressure)
"We'll bleed the same way"
(Change in pressure)

Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You

I preferred it before
We should ring dad more
Lost our house
Hold me close
I stopped by, just to wash my clothes

I know it's me that's supposed to love you
And when I'm home you know I got you
Is there somebody who can watch you?

I know it's me that's supposed to love you
And when I'm home you know I got you
Is there somebody who can love you?

Is there somebody who can watch you?
Is there somebody who can watch you?
