Bird, Andrew - Orpheo Lyrics




There are places we must go to
To bring these hollow words on back from
You must cross the muddy river
Where love turns to, love turns to fear

They say you don't look
There's only one way
On back from, on back from here
They say you don't look
'Cause it'll disappear

And our eyes they keep on straining
As if to see what lies behind 'em
Through the shells of empty buildings
And great columns of glass

They say you don't look
They say you don't look
'Cause it'll drive you mad
And if it drives you mad
Drives you mad
It'll probably pass

And if it drives you mad
And if it drives you mad
It'll probably pass

And if it drives you mad
If it drives you mad
It'll probably pass

    My favorite version of this song. I wish there were more live versions in this style rather than the "Orpheo Looks Book" rendition.

    Viejos recuerdos de un amor que no se olvidara jamás...Where love turns to, love turns to fear...

  10. Tunasword

    It's amazing how the change in tempo/instrumentation changes the entire song from the old version on Break It Yourself.

  11. theo g

    Has a tint of The Be Good Tanyas.
    Check them out, truly nostalgic.

  12. WayneHughes86

    This is my favorite new song. It's so heartbreaking and beautiful. Makes me nostalgic.

    The Master writes another beauty.... incredibly beautiful to me. Wow. Mr. Bird how deep can you go?

    Listening to this in a public place right now. Almost broke down in man-tears.

    SO GOOD

    One of my favorite versions of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists. Swoon....
    Hope to see you in NYC, Mr. Bird.
