Drop
Guitar tabs

the way you drop is like a stone
making out you're flying
but you've just been thrown

till kingdom comes
and through bitten tongues
these eyes get stung
with every curse sung

these twisted times
can't compare to mine
and heaven knows where loving goes

i should have guessed
when i took that pill
do i love her still
well did jesus kill

by The Jesus And Mary Chain




Suzanne

suzanne is waiting at your doorway
but all she does is waste your time
and she looks just like my sister
but she feels just like my man

and all the times i mean to tell her
the cats in here are overflown
she pulls aside a four-leaf clover
and makes me feel right on my own

suzanne (repeat)

suzanne is waiting at your doorway
but all she does is waste your time
and she looks just like my sister
but she feels just like my man

suzanne (repeat)

(last verse not on EP version)




Butterfly Mornings

butterfly mornings
butterfly mornings
catch me there
gonna get me there
if i have to climb all the mountains on the moon
i'll be in butterfly mornings
butterfly mornings
and wild flower afternoons

i found you in the corner
down there sitting on the seat
gonna trace your footsteps
underneath the waves
on the petals of a wild flower
with the sun at high noon
i went walkin' in butterfly mornings
and wild flower afternoons

butterfly mornings
wild flower afternoons




On the Low
Guitar tabs

on the light
on the low

all this time
i always held the light on for you
but i know i'm a fool
yes i know




Baby Let Me

(Instrumental)




Feeling of Gaze

got your hair all done up
like a woman again
got a feeling of gaze
at the doorway again

i feel alone for you
i feel alive with you
i feel a sin fading
celebrate, celebrate

gonna play my favorite song
gonna play it all night long
gonna feel a sense of falling
gonna hush (?) my heart so (?)

i feel alive with you
i feel a sin fading
celebrate, celebrate




Charlotte
Guitar tabs

she's got a rose in her smile
she says she knows, and she does
and her mind aches
and her heart breaks
'cause she's silly

gonna teach her to sin
'cause i'm always knowin' where she's been
living on the wrong side of the tracks
and i know she's never coming back

she's got a smile like a flower
she looks so fine by the hour
and her mind aches
and her heart breaks
'cause she's silly

gonna teach her to steal
'cause i'm always knowin' how she feels
living on the wrong side of the tracks
and i know she's never coming back

oh no

and her mind aches
and her heart breaks
'cause she's silly
to me




Clear Day
Guitar tabs

it's a clear day out (repeat)

gonna find all your troubles
gonna send them away
gonna make you feel happy
gonna be what you say

it's a clear day out (repeat)

gonna walk through your doorway
gonna be what you say
gonna take all your troubles
gonna kiss them away
yeah

it's a clear day (repeat)




Bavarian Fruit Bread
Guitar tabs

saw you
on the high street
a little bit out of love for me

oh well, you'll always be
i've got a brand new machine
i'm gonna make myself treat you mean
i'm gonna spend all of my money
making you cry

i forgot
i thought freely
you're the one that is untrusting

i've got a brand new set of wheels
i'm gonna drive you straight to tears
i'm gonna spend all of my money
making you cry




Around My Smile

got me going on again
around my smile
and i've got a thoughtless feeling inside

i've got it going
i've got it going
i've got it going
i've got it going on

got me going on again
around my smile
and i've got a thoughtless feeling inside

why don't you take a friend
in the shade
somewhere all the minutes stay around

i've got it going
i've got it going
i've got it going
i've got it going on

got me going on again
around my smile
and i've got a thoughtless feeling inside

i've got it going (repeat)




Lose Me On the Way

lose me on the way
i've got a price to pay
till i heard the north wind sigh (?)
all the world's a flame
this heart will never be the same
she's the flower in your eyes now

what a fool of heart
such a fool of heart
what a fool of heart
such a fool...

lose me on the way
she's the flower in your eyes now
all the world's a flame
this heart will never be the same
never...




At The Doorway Again EP

Around My Smile & Charlotte: See above

Sparkly

Down The Steps

He's my friend, don't wake him
He's asleep for sure
Look at his eyes, open stare
Warm smile on his face

Here we go up the steps
------, no regrets
Look at his arms, hollow and cold

I'll never want to make him go
He's my friend, I know
I'll never want to make him stay
For now, He'll never go away

It's the night or the morning
------, and nothing on him
Here or there don't mean much
Sylvia says he's cold to touch

I'll never want to make him go
He's my friend, I know
I'll never want to make him stay
But now, he'll never go away

Down the steps
Fast asleep
Wake up
Make us some tea




Suzanne EP

Suzanne: See above

I Thought You'd Fall For Me

i thought i'd fall for you
cuz you're different
this could be hard for you
that's way different

we all know that is wrong
all your looks after all
you were so proud for me
??? helps your sleep ???

i thought you were lonely
collapsing ???
you're even far away
never hit the ground

i feel unhappy
now that i'm over you
but there's nothing else to do
so you're feeling safe x2

whisper like
a day cast in shadows
moonlight cast the sky
(repeat)




These Things

i don't think i'll come around
letting my hair hang down
making my way through your door
i ain't gonna do that no more

don't think i'll tell you another time
that you were always looking so fine
loving me i'm just so right
keeping me safe in the dark night

don't think these things
come so easily
love is what you make it
and i've made my place

don't feel like saying hello
to all those friends that you know
keeping my face with a smile
while you keep me down all the while

i ain't gonna come around
letting my hair hang down
making my way through your door
i ain't gonna do that no more




Friends of a Smile

won't you let your light shine
won't you let your light shine
beneath the city
under the sun
and soft around

smiles of a friend (repeat)

(tape recorder in background)




"Paradise Circus"
From Massive Attack's album Heligoland (2010)
... Amazon / Amazon UK / iTunes

It's unfortunate that when we feel a storm
We can roll ourselves over cuz we're uncomfortable
Oh where the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we're spinning in his grip

Love is like a sin my love
For the ones that feel it the most
Look at her with a smile like a flame
She will love you like a fly will never love you, again


"Wild Roses"
From the Air France compilation In The Air (2008)
... Amazon / iTunes

When I speak about it now
I put things ... to you
Maybe I've been dismayed
Maybe that's the truth

We're like the roses
Stand in the backyard
There is no misery
In the town we grew up wild

When I look out the door
I know what it's there for
To leave or to come back
Safe in the morning

Safe me ...
Roaming too late
Suddenly I fall dear
In the town we grew up wild

We're like the roses
Stand in the backyard
There is no misery
In the town we grew up wild


"Cherry Blossom Girl (Hope Sandoval version)"
From Air's Cherry Blossom Girl Single (2004)
... Amazon / iTunes

I don't think to feel like being shy
Don't think i wanna stand it anymore
I just want to say "Hi"
To the one I love
Tell my cherry blossom girl

This is true

I never talk to you
People say I should
I just wanna go out ...
Just wanna be sure be by my side
Tell my cherry blossom girl

Yes it's true
Yes it's true
This is true


"Angel's Share"
From Vetiver's self-titled album Vetiver (2004)
... Amazon / iTunes

Makeshift moon mends a broken sky
Fields of fallow still stands dry
Night not gentle, soon for the night

Her mistake was to trust in him
His bottle the excuse again
Yeah, the voices hard like the wind

Said, "I'm tired of you coming home late"
"I will do as I please, Kate
"There's no one gon' tell me how to be"
"Not for my sake, Tom, for the family"

He read guilt when she pled love
Got anxious and began to shove
Clouds have been kept loomed above

Curses raised the kids from bed
They fell down the stairs in time to see
The blood run warm down Kate's head

While the wounds in silence came to scars
Tom kept hitting them jukejoint bars
All the love vanished in the air
Filled with paper vows and the angels' share


"All This Remains"
From Bert Jansch's album Edge of a Dream (2002)
... Amazon / iTunes

I've been seeing you
In this house of mine
Got your arms away
From my strange disguise
All the things that you believe
Are still in me
As though you please

And they shimmer
On the ends of my memories
I could feel your ghost
In the breeze

I'm telling you this
So you won't have anything
But this to know
Our colours fade
All this remains

And they shimmer
On the ends of my memories
I could feel your ghost
In the breeze

It's not so much
That you should say
You had a love
Turn out this way
It covers your ears
And stops your heart
And holds you near

The shimmer
On the ends of my memories
I could feel your ghost
In the breeze


"Killing Smile" and "Help Yourself"
From Death In Vegas' album Scorpio Rising (2002)
... Amazon / iTunes

Killing Smile

You can spin your world behind my falling star
The slab beneath you in your long killing smile
I've got the time to spare
But you don't need it
I've got my mind in anyway
You can always shine behind my hidden door
Just like a flame although with you I couldn't tell I'm not the one who ever walks away
Don't have a feeling that I wanna waste my time
But you know I ...

And you know I want to...with you
All the time (repeat)

I'm feeling like I want to hang around
Don't have a ... to lay it down
But you know I want to...with you
And you that I could...with you

All the the while I spend my time making schemes
Now I know when things are always what they seem
But you know they should
Yeah
And you know I want that...to change
And you know I want that...please

Help Yourself

You can't change without someone's shadow
'Cuz then it's gone
when you still shine
You can't change to solve somebody's name
Don't blink until you're made

When all destroyed, broke all in Hell,
and you don't need what you could steal;
I'm feeling like something I don't know that's wrong
And I know the sad in my heart

Help yourself with
Help yourself with what you need, yeah
Help yourself when
Help yourself when you don't need it
Help yourself

Help yourself with
Help yourself with what you need, yeah
Help yourself when
Help yourself when you don't need it


"Asleep From Day"
From The Chemical Brothers album Surrender (1999)
... Amazon / iTunes

I know just what your mama said
Always misunderstood
Gotta tell you something
I saw it in your eyes

I think I left your back seat
And now it's always good
I fell asleep from day
And all the promises

There's a lot of people
That let their will to say
I've got a lot of friends
And they've got beautiful eyes
That make my heart feel surprised
And you notice it
And thats the truth
Thats the truth

Have me to you
I shine along underneath your view
I'll be the one
To let you know when you've come undone

I like the stars in the sky
And watch the moonlight go by
I've got a lot of friends


"Perfume"
From The Jesus & Mary Chain album Munki (1998)
... Amazon / iTunes

Meeow (repeat)

Alive, alive, alive

I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive alive alive alive

Baby I'm in heaven
But I don't believe a word
No I don't believe a word
Going down

I'm on five
I'm on five
I'm on five
Alive alive alive

Maybe I got lucky
But I always stood the chance
Yeah I always stood the chance of the prize


"Sometimes Always"
Duet with Jim Reid from The Jesus & Mary Chain album Stoned & Dethroned (1994)
... Amazon / iTunes

I gave you all I had
I gave you good and bad
I gave but you just threw it back

I won't get on my knees
Don't make me do that please
I've been away but now I'm back

Don't be too sure of that
What makes you sure of that
You went away you can't come back

I walked away from you
I hurt you through and through
Aw honey give me one more chance

Aw you're a lucky son
Lucky son of a gun
You went away, you went away
You went away but now youre back

I got down on my knees
And then I begged you please
I always knew you'd take me back
