Barking Lyrics
Bird 1
------------
bad, big and tan?
white stick
with a little light
floats past her on the right
white stick on the rock
groping in the wind
are you hungry

do you know what to eat
floating in the blue
i hear you
your voice
it comes out above my head
close to you
close to you

there is one bird in my house
she said
he woke up from a dream
he heard Mama Cass
he felt better
he found enormous things
it damped his mood for a second
then he remembered where he was
he regained his perspective
and felt a -- lot better

gets much better
he laid down on his bed
with the front door open
and the sunlight flooding into the room
he smelled time
he laid back listening to a fly

he saw the washing hanging in the sun
he caught a fleeting glimpse of a man
moving up hill
pursued by a bus he saw a white church
with a three blue domed roof
a crucifix on the top and
an ant walked along the edge of his book he heard
another bell
and a grey mustache

A moped started up
sounding like a chainsaw
of tiny firecrackers
and he smelled the time again
a fly came in along the shaft of sunlight
coming through the open door
he watched it cross the room and get
half way then it
turned around and left
he left

there is one bird in my house x 4

he saw the washing hanging in the sun
he caught a fleeting glimpse of a man
moving up hill
pursued by a bus he saw a white church
with a three blue domed roof
a crucifix on the top and
an ant walked along the edge of his book he heard
another bell
and a grey mustache

A moped started up
sounding like a chainsaw
of tiny firecrackers
and he smelled the time again
a fly came in along the shaft of sunlight
coming through the open door
he watched it cross the room and get
half way then it
turned around and left
he left

there is one bird in my house (repeat)

Always Loved A Film

The rhythm of legs moving in the sun
the rhythm of an engine deep and throaty
the rhythm of a summer that you walked in

The sound of a barking dog on a loop
A plane rises in the crystal blue
The rhythm of keys swinging in your hand
The rhythm of light coming out of your fingers

Heaven (x6)
Can You Feel It? (x2)
Heaven (x2)

The rhythm of wheels
The rhythm of heels
As we fall into the sun
She walk on silver
She walk on gold
Paints i love you on the alley walls
For the eyes that hide behind black glasses
Sunlight hits everyone she passes

Heaven (x6)
Can You Feel It? (x2)
Heaven (x2)

And I don't know if I love you more than the way you used to love me
And i don't know if i need you more than the way you used to need me
But it's...

Heaven (x6)
Can You Feel It? (x2)
Heaven (x2)



Scribble
----------------------
And it's OK (x4)

And it's OK
You give me everything I need
And it's OK
You give me everything I need

(Juanita spoken:)
Whispers
Elevators
Bad boy
Drive
New York girl
Bang
Weird thing
Huge
Amazing
Download
Something
Paradise

And it's OK
You give me everything I need
And it's OK
You give me everything I need
I got your picture

Whispers
Bad boy
Elevator
Agitator
New York girls
Corkscrew hair
Bang
Now
Wanna be
Wanna be stars
Through these joyous times

And it's OK
You give me everything I need
And it's OK
You give me everything I need

Re: Barking Lyrics
Grace
----------
light up the darkness
i'm violently in love
the waitress smiles
the music's too loud
my body hurts

light up the dark
light up the dark
i'm violently in love
the music's loud
the music's loud
the music's too loud

my body hurts
my body hurts
you leave the room
and just for a second
the silence is like a blessing

Lovers kiss
lovers whisper
beaming and grinning
in the underground
in the underground
this is not what i expected

light up the dark
light up the dark
i'm violently in love
the music's loud
the music's loud
my body hurts
you leave the room
you leave the room
and just for a second
the silence is the silence is like a blessing

the rhythm between us
trembles
snatching circles
alone with you
the heat comes from your eyes
and the soft voice
falls out the sky

warm skin
close your eyes
eyes behind glass
warm skin? (moon skin?)
close your eyes
and the sky turns red
and the rails slip beneath us

light up (repeat)

Between Stars
-------------------

I drive too fast
under a full moon
save the best to last
under a full moon
and pray it don't crash
under a full moon

when the head's too far out of whack
step back (repeat)

and the hope of the world
rides with one man
everybody cram
on the telephone ringing

we hold our breath
we spin around the world
you and me cling to the outside of the earth
under a full moon

I've got you on my brain
again and again
and i hear your voice on a northbound bus
chinatown to chinatown

and the hope of the world
rides with one man
everybody cram
on the telephone ringing

we hold our breath
we spin around the world
you and me cling to the outside of the earth
under a full moon

will you hold my camera?
will you press release?
will you capture me?
as the lights go down

and the hope of the world
rides with one man
everybody cram
on the telephone ringing

we hold our breath
we spin around the world
you and me cling to the outside of the earth
under a full moon

step back (repeating)
don't wait for me
i'm always late
in my blood
in the sun
I feel the world go round
feel the world go round

Diamond Jigsaw
------------------------

And does it hurt
that you finally found yourself
and does it hurt
that you find a bit of wealth
black coffee for my mood
can you make me shine
lonely sweet stuff
come walking
nick of time
don't look at me like a tourist
the dog's got teeth
all the signs are loaded
all the signs are loaded
all the signs are loaded

And does it help
that you finally found yourself
and does it help
that you crawled out of your shell
I wanna wake up? in a better place
let me in your care
blow your horn in the dark
there's someone there
and there's a white stretch limo parked on
a single line
premium tequila
diamond jigsaw
makes me feel fine

And does it help
that you finally found yourself
and does it help
that you crawled out of your shell
I wanna wake up? in a better place
let me in your care
blow your horn in the dark
there's someone there

*GUITAR *

And does it help
that you finally found yourself
and does it help
that you crawled out of your shell
I wanna wake up? in a better place
let me in your care
blow your horn in the dark
there's someone there
and there's a white stretch limo parked on
a single line
premium tequila
diamond jigsaw
makes me feel fine

and does it help (repeat)

Re: Barking Lyrics
Moon In Water
----------------

the phenomenon moon in the water
is likened to human experience
the water is the subject
and the moon the object
when there is no water
there is no moon in the water
and likewise
there is no moon
when the moon rises
the water does not wait
to receive its image
and when even the tiniest
drop of water is poured out
the moon does not wait
to cast its reflection

does not wait to cast its reflection (repeat)
manifests (repeat)
does not wait to cast its reflection (repeat)

the past is already past
the future is not yet here
things are constantly changing

the event is caused
as much by the water
as by the moon
and as the water manifests the brightness of the moon
the moon manifests the clarity of the water

Louisiana
---------------
I fell asleep last night
On a roundabout
A cloud of wings
From the glass around you
The light reflects
The sun on your skin
When you touch me
Bullets in conversation
On a crowded train
Quietly violent
When you touch me
Planets in sweet collision
Quietly violent

I fell asleep last night
On the underground
The --- breaks
With the light around you
The darkness breaks
Whenever you walk in
When you touch me
Planets in sweet collision
When you touch me
Bullets in conversation
Quietly violent x2

Re: Barking Lyrics
Original version of ALAF (I did this prior to the finished version because I liked the Brixton lyrics):
Quote:

The rhythm of legs moving in the sun
I really want an engine deep and throaty
I really want a summer that you walked in

The sound of a barking dog on a loop
As a plane passes over, red and blue
The music of a key swinging in your hand
I really want the light coming out of your fingers

Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Heaven, heaven

I really dust, I really want rust
The sound of broken glass
Wrapped in metal, wrapped in stone
"I love you" scratched on an alley wall
The light that hides behind black glasses
Sunlight hits everyone she passes

Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Heaven, heaven

Well, I don't know if I love you more than when you used to love me
And I don't know if I need you more than when you used to need me
Bright as

Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Heaven, heaven
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Heaven, heaven
Not that much of a difference, but there are some notable changes - for instance, I was really fond of that line about the plane!
Up next is Scribble!
(now if only I could find that post to copy-paste from...)

Actually, it sounds to me like the first verse is identical, and that Karl probably just messed up the plane line.

The second verse has a lot of changes in the first half. However, I'm not entirely convinced that Karl didn't mess up that verse either. I mean, how do dust and rust have rhythms? I'll have to see if I can dig up any more ALAF recordings from that period and compare lyrics.

Edit: OK, I listened to the Brighton recording, and it was pretty much like Brixton, so the plane line changed slightly, the whole first half of the second verse changed, and it's "eyes" now instead of "lights" behind black glasses.

Yeah, you are right, changed to reflect your edits.

Re: Barking Lyrics
so the title is 'Barking' - as in 'the rhythm of a barking dog' - and not, the place in essex?
