Barbara Barbara - The Lyrics
We're overdue, so I'll get us started (with an easy one):


Nylon Strung
----------------


Sliding between the dust
of a scorched day

(Alive alive)
(Alive alive)

Open me up
I wanna hold you
Laughing

(Carry me)

(Alive alive) (Alive alive)
(Carry me)

What don't lift you
Drag you down
Keep away from the darksides

It don't lift you
Drags you down
Keep away from the darksides
(Repeat x3)

Every thought, loose in your mouth
Every thought, loose in your mouth
Courtesy of all hidden things
Courtesy of all hidden things

What don't lift you
Drag you down
Keep away from the darksides

It don't lift you
Drags you down
Keep away from the darksides
(Repeat)

Re: Barbara Barbara - The Lyrics
i thought it was "good to see" but now that i re-listen it sounds more like "Could."

also i hear "every thought loose in your mouth."

Re: Barbara Barbara - The Lyrics
Yup, I'll buy that. Makes more sense. The next line still doesn't make much sense.

Re: Barbara Barbara - The Lyrics
I agree TheBang. The album version sounds like the two "Could to see you all hidden things" might actually be two seperate lines. Both could start with "good" or "could", but to be honest i'm not sure it even ends in "things" - It almost sounds like "veins"

Though on second thought, with the previous line being "every thought loose in your mouth" it would actually make sense for the next line to be awkward or random

I wasn't here when the thread started (pre-edits) but I hear: "Every thought losing your mouth" (which might make sense, as in: your mouth can't keep up with or express your dark thoughts). Maybe you had that originally?

Yeah, that's what I had originally. I'll have another listen, as well as for the other one.

Re: Barbara Barbara - The Lyrics
If you google: "Digger Dagger" you will probably find a reference to a chant by fans of Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club (nickname: The Daggers). The club is situated in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham. I suspect it's not a coincidence that Twenty Three Blue contains the words Digger and Dagger.

With that out of the way, I'm going to be bold and act as though I'm a regular contributor around these parts by having a bash at some lyrics. I know there are errors here, but hey, it's a start

Twenty Three Blue


Little imitation plastic wood (?would?) go
The wind is coming, wait
Time moved slowly on the island
Pale the dagger, pale the digger, on-puller (?)

of the white line (+inaudible)
nothing is a problem
the sound of you, like geese
the sound of you, ringing
crystal did it in a flat bed (?bid?)
shows i never seen like days before
cover the city tonight

city hey
cold head
blue come and wrap around us
come on take me home
walking slow
breathing upstairs and laughter
rippling....
footsteps in grey
they're listening
dipped in black
smiling
sounds on the stairs
winter walks in,
phone rings, I hesitate
(then I) then answer
carry cup to see you later
do you feel the cold of winter

touching steaming paper
it's up to you
before the world wakes up
do u feel the cold of winter
do u feel the cold of winter
do u feel the cold of winter

Do u feel the cold of winter
Do u feel the cold of winter

now in black
between the trees
berry berry berry (??)
(inaudible) dragon style
walking through the wind
cold knuckles
slow browns and greys
laugh (?last?) post to faceman
selling Monday in the market
winter streets dries bones
do u feel the cold...
