I will fly swift and true straight to you, like an arrow
Just to be where you lie
Meet my quest, do my shambling best to be near you
Where you lie
I've found peace in your arms

Gentle storm
Rage my way
Fall in love with me
Fall in love with me
Fall in love with me
Everyday

Counting down, now the clocks reset when I met you
Do we start a new life?
Yours and my spit-shone restless hearts, they were meant to
Beat one time, share one fate
From this day

Gentle storm
Rage away
And fall in love with me
Fall in love with me
Fall in love with me
Everyday

Love the talkup on this, Bill.  Might have been a mistake but it was smooth.  
I don't know why this is the perfect song. Maybe it's simplicity.
Very interesting rhythm. At first I didn't like it, but now I find it unique.
I love this song so much.

Well, that beat .
The beginning has some nice bar/lounge feeling, the rest I can't remember. {#Cheesygrin}
I saw them last Saturday at a relatively small venue (1,400) in Portland. Fantastic show! If you are not a fan of audience participation, you wouldn't like it. See them if you can.

Dross. Living in the UK and trying to avoid these is a full time job. Horrible.
I dig this bit of Elbow (could enjoy it in a dark cheap lower east side joint, one of those 3 steps below street level where you almost bump into the bar on your way in and the bright eyed lady bartender takes care of you immediately, yeah gonna be a good night : )
Good band.

Why did you go to "overpriced rooftop lounges"?

Digging this tune too - look forward to sitting down with the whole album!

 
I just finished my first full-through listen of this album, which I thought I would really enjoy....seems like BillG has picked the few tracks that are worth playing here as I found the rest of the album not that good.  Still I will always LOVE track #1 (Magnificent (She Says)) and K2 and this track. And maybe there was another I'm forgetting.  Not being a long time Elbow fan (well...I like MY elbows a lot) I think they were better before the drummer called it quitso.

 
On the other hand, I just finished the same listening exercise with the newest Spoon album (Hot Thoughts) and that one totally ROCKS...it's staying in my truck's CD player for the time being. 

Now just waiting a month for The War On Drugs album coming out in August....hopefully that one is as good as the 3 tracks we've heard from it.

LONG LIVE RP!!


Never tire of his beautiful voice.

Yep, I'm giving this one the elbow, much as I do with the rest of Elbow's oeuvre. There's a fine line between elegaic and soporific, and sadly for me Elbow induces narcolepsy {#Sleep}
Can't help but notice that after their drummer left, these songs have a lot of natural sounding drum machine on them.

This song is alright, but RP seems to play a bit too often.

 
Yes. These days...every day.
