1975, The - Intro / Set3 Lyrics




The skin that you're in is all soft now
And your bones are dry as ice
What you sitting 'round here for, and why you sad?
Cos everybody's pushing out babies now

In the mornings, I was getting high with you
In the mornings, I was getting high with you

Cos everybody's pushing
What you sitting 'round here for, and why you sad?
Cos everybody is pushing
Coseverybody is pushing

Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now, dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now, dead now, dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now, dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now, dead now, dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now
Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now

  45. Paolo Gatdula

    downtripping :(

  46. mary kosin

    Their music just makes me feel like I'm floating

  47. Tony Leon

    So whys it called Set 3?

    ParcheesyBananaphone

    It's the rough draft of The Sound from their other album ... some guy further up in the comments explains it really well.

  48. Giorgi

    the 1975 makes me feel good, pure, right, makes me feel free

  49. Cranberry the Cat

    One of the reasons I like The 1975 so much is because of how they reference their other songs within each song. In musicals, there are several melodies or lyrics that are repeated throughout the entirety of the play (sometimes slightly altered to match a particular situation while still reminding the listener of a past event or feeling), and the same is done for many of The 1975's songs:
    *Such as in "Intro/Set3" and "The Sound"*
    "Well I thought I'd see you round', but you're dead now."
    "Well, I know when you're around, cos' I know the sound."
    *Or "Settle Down" and "She's American"*
    "Small town. Dictating all the people we get round."
    "Big town. Synthetic apparitions of not being lonely."

    Those, as well as several repetitions of "face straight outa magazine", and several other strings of lyrics and similar beats and music all the tie their songs together, even if the style or mood of the songs vary from album to album. And that parallelism is what makes their songs special to me. It's not like they're telling a story exactly, with a beginning, middle, and end, but instead, painting several pictures, scenes, or moods that interweave together, as in the way one recalls a memory.

    Leo Scott

    The similarities in melodies that you are referencing are called 'leitmotifs.'

  50. cloud

    i keep coming back to this. so fucking beautiful, i can't describe it tbh

  51. sbæ02

    Well I know when you're around cause I know the sound of your heart......So similar

  52. y19gmusic

    Kinda reminds me of The Sound

    CC Music

    y19gmusic no shit

  53. Abraham Wright

    their most underrated song imo. its so fucking special and emotional.

  54. Amanda F

    something about this song makes it seem so hopeful

  55. jdog167

    "Well I thought I'd see you round', but you're dead now."
    "Well, I know when you're around, cos' I know the sound."

    Diana Durán

    holly fuck...

    lov u

    Diana Durán who is named holly fuck !?!

    milene

    i thought that part sounded oddly familiar...

    Izzy Izzy

    jdog167 to me that part sounded like the sound but with a remix sort of

  56. E. Allison

    Matty made very album divided into 3 sets by instrumental songs, this song is called Intro/Set3, the main lyric of this song was the precursor of The Sound, which is the first song of the third set of their sophomore album. Intro/Set3 is just the draft/idea of the introduction of the third set which would be The Sound

    Abraham Wright

    fuck that is cool lol

    Victorian Hart

    wait hold on i'm confused what's a precursor

    Victorian Hart

    oohhhh nvm I heard ittt!!

    Liz Sky

    Yet this song slays The Sound.

    Ben Goh

    I interpreted the "sets" as referring to the 4 "sets of songs" comprising the EPs (which were created to generate buzz in the lead up to the debut album). We also know that the EPs were specifically crafted to house the bigger singles such as The City, Chocolate, and Sex; so "Set3" would be in reference to the third set of songs, the Sex EP.

  57. Naomi Suko

    woooowww. this makes me want to cry.

  58. Maya

    fav part is @0:54-1:07 idk why 😂😂

  59. Sharine E.

    Makes me feel like im floating through space

  60. Alex Laidlaw

    What a caring guy Matty must be to write about experiences like that in such a simple way. Its like the tune portrays the emotion and his lyrics tell the story. The emphasis of the repeat at the end gets me, its like he's thought about that moment religiously. So underrated.

  61. Mieshia Dyches

    This song is such art...and should be treated as such. can't wait to see them on my birthday

  62. Sophie

    2 months til i see them live, every day that goes by i get more and more excited. No one compares to this band

  63. Grant Morgan

    Hey it's the precursor to The Sound! Neat to see the evolution of their style.

    Moreya Nero

    I thought the same!!!

    Ly Du Tran

    omg i thought i was the only one !!

    The skin that you're in is all soft now
    And your bones are dry as ice
    What you sitting round here for and why is that
    Cos everybody's pushing out babies now
    In the mornings I was getting high with you
    Well I thought I'd see you around but you're dead now

  66. robby

    One of the best songs by them, really underrated.

  67. Raiwun MUC

    this piece of art is really deep... like really deep stuff but for me its too much sounds at once idk why just my op. for me as a men its difficult to open my mind to a boy group's music but if i just let my headphones go and dont give a f bout' material shit and superficial things i really got chills...

    Raiwun MUC

    + after 3rd time hearing it is way better

  71. Dude Morrison

  77. // R O B B E R S //

    I thought my cd is broken cause of this song lol great song btw

  78. Matthew Miller

    What a treat! I've been listening to The 1975 for almost 2 years and today is the first time I heard this song.,, Wow.

  79. Daij

    So this is the first time I've ever heard this song, but I do love The 1975, don't get me wrong. I loved this song straight from the beginning and towards the end something about this song seemed to change and I paid more attention. It made me feel high and careless, so free. I thought he was saying "doughnuts in your mouth" and I still fucking loved this song. Turns out, he's saying "thought I'd see you 'round but you're dead now". I love the song even more. I literally cried when I figured it out. The way these men make music brings happiness to my life.

  80. JC RIGS

    SONG NEEDS TO BE LONGER! ABSOLUTE LOVE IT

  81. JishTheFish

    This is the saddest song I've ever heard but I love it

  82. Queer Film

    Tears flow every time. Boys thank you.

  87. Lauren Harmon

    one of my favorite 1975 songs ever..

  88. Joy Bird

    in the mornings i was getting high with you...

  89. Bluecozade

    This song is so beautiful, it makes me feel so relaxed and takes me to some place away from those bad thoughts in my head. I appreciate all of the 1975 and their music but this song has a special place for me

    Trevor Neeteson

    I get what you mean about it taking you away from the bad thoughts, I feel the same way

    LisV :3

    PVRIS has music that takes me away to a different place. I recommend looking them up.

  90. Anotheruseforaname

    I think this song is about a girl he used to have a relationship who had a baby way too young before she was ready to handle it he never saw her around anymore because she was too busy raising another life when she never had the chance to live out her own

    E. Allison

    Your a bit right actually, matty wrote the song because everyone around him was becoming so mature and grown up he felt childish. By everyone's pushing out babies now, he means that most girls he knew had preggers and by I thought id seen you around but you're dead now, he exaggerates that nows he's a bit older and basically everyone one he knows is dead

  91. __IV__

    1:10 PURE MAGIC 

  92. IWantLeGames

    This song is absolutely perfect. It's been one of my favorite songs from the first time I heard it. It sounded completely different than anything I've heard before. The only drawback to this song is that it feels so short by the time you get to the end. ;-;

  93. Crisnatiel Corporan

    so different! i love this

  94. Raven Hb

    Ugh amazing could listen on repeat for the rest of my life, love

  95. Kylee winlund

    I thought I'd see you around, but you're dead now... 

    I love this band more than I love myself

  96. Toree Marie

    Good vibes 👌🌿

  97. aaron richard

    this song is so great it gives me the tingles
