Afghan Whigs, The - Algiers Lyrics




Faith, the diamond in the chain
Still I was a slave, waiting to be saved
Dream, the body sleeps but I
Am not too proud to roam
On the back streets
It's oh, so simple when you know
You'll know this when it's time to go

Stray, and soon you'll leave behind
The loneliness you've sown, paradise leans
Scream, the body leaves the bone
To sit upon the throne
The battle waged for light

Dream, dream your sins away
Sin your dreams away
You're holding back, stop holding back
Unchain!

Say you'll love me tonight
Save your love for me tonight
And I feel you now
Lie awake and love drunk
I feel you now

Heavenly daemons outside my window
Sent here to see me outside this world
I call the shadow, you call the season
And that's solitary

  6. Simon Ginks

    The only time Greg Dulli ever held a note was when he was inhaling coke through it. Learn how to sing already fat boy.

  7. She’s the Devils god

    What I find while surfing the border between shadow and self.....so splendid. Musics not bad either

  8. Hakim Teyar

    Hi guys, I'm from Algiers. However, this doesn't look like Algiers at all

  9. Jeff Oliver

    What the hell is going on in this video?

  10. Simulated Rain

    the sound effects are a great touch. i like how they completely distract from and ruin the best parts of the song.

  11. Rich Dick

    My love is saved for you tonight .....

    Algiers

    The Afghan Whigs Algiers lyrics

    Flamed, the time when nearly changed
    Still I was a slave, waiting to be saved
    Dream, the body sleeps but I
    Am not too proud to roll
    On the back streets
    So, so simple when you know
    You know this when it's time to go

    Strange, the sooner you leave behind
    Lonely as you sold paradise
    Scream, the body leaves the bone
    To sit upon the throne
    A better waits for life

    Dream, dream your sins away
    Sing your dreams away
    You're holding back, still holding back Algiers

    Huh

    Say you love me tonight
    Save you love for me tonight
    And I feel you now
    I lie awake on the way of love
    And I feel
    But I

    Heavenly daemons outside my window
    Sent here to see me outside this world
    I call the shadow, you call the season
    That's all it takes
    A tous un grand bonjour d'Alger en Algérie
    For all of you hello from Algiers in Algeria

  33. CurvyAries

    Whoever the music director is for Ray Donovan is amazing, they deserve an award. I've heard so much awesome music from that show. This song is hauntingly beautiful❤

  34. James Charles

    Dave Rosser is awesome !! R.I.P. Your missed !

  35. Henry Mick

    Sounds like an Oasis song to me... found it, 'The Importance of Being Idle' check it out. Very very similar melody. If not directly stolen. Listen to the guitar in the background, before the distortion kicks in. The tempo and the overall feel is very simliar aswell.

  36. Andy Trullinger

    I listen to this guitar solo at 2:04 somewhat religiously.

  37. Nick Fusaro

    Liev Fucking Shreiber. this dude plays that part perfectly. ***k. what a show this is. Good song.

  38. Jason Panella

    Greg Dulli brought me here.

  39. Kevin C

    Faith
    The diamond in the chain
    Still I was a slave
    Waiting to be saved
    Dream
    The body sleeps but I
    Am not too proud to roam
    On the back streets

    It's oh, so simple when you know
    You'll know this when it's time to go

    Stray
    And soon you'll leave behind
    The loneliness you've sown
    Paradise leans
    Scream
    The body leaves the bone
    To sit upon the throne
    The battle waged for light

    Dream
    Dream your sins away
    Sin your dreams away
    You're holding back, stop holding back
    Unchain!

    Say you'll love me tonight
    Save your love for me tonight
    And I feel you now
    Lie awake and love drunk
    I feel you now

    Heavenly daemons outside my window
    Sent here to see me outside this world
    I call the shadow, you call the season
    That salted wound...

    i call the shadow you call the season.
    ode to mark lanegan?

    jason macierowski

    I think what had to be spoken to Mark was spoken. Not saying it's easier.... https://youtu.be/K0m4pahSRJw

  40. LMNOP686

    So supposedly this song got it's name from being recorded in Algiers, LA (suburb of New Orleans) where I was living at the time. Video does not give one glimpse of Chubbies Fried Chicken, The Dry Dock, or the various daiquiri stores where one can get pickled with a Tulane & Broad at all hours. To much to ask for a shout-out?

  41. A Friend Called 5

    Greg's voice is bone chilling. Love the Whigs

  42. Chan Soman Music

    so much autotune at the end...

  43. liliana castorina

    Bellissima

  44. Mighty Duck

    Im the opposite. I just loved this song, so i might now watch Ray Donovan

  45. Rod Ferraz

    Would anyone know the brand/model of those sunglasses that Greg Dulli is wearing?

  46. Masacarman BiH

    zabio vam ga rej donovan..svimaa

  47. Donna Murphy

    I can listen to this song all day. I love the music and the raspy voice. Seriously sexy!

  48. Soma Kun

    hah Ray donovan xDD

  49. obersauger

    Love Ray and
    this Song!

  50. con heo

    love ray donovan

  51. Vlad Hagiu

    Mothefucker ray donovan

  52. Rod Ferraz

    Would anyone know the brand and model of Greg's sunglasses? They are awesome.

  53. Vicky Chen

    this song is way too underrated

  54. Giovanni Cigarini

    The song is a masterpiece, why waste it with the unpleasant sound of the whips and the violence?

  55. Bhaskar Dangat

    Ray Donovan 😊 thank you

  56. Seagull

    I've always heard and loved Afghan Whigs...they've always played the soundtrack of my life...

  57. Ricky Benjamin

    Fuck you

  58. mountain

    Descobri esta música no seriado Ray Donavan, desde então ela se tornou trilha sonora dos meus rolês. Melhor descoberta de 2017.

  59. Eamonn o

    Anyone else think the opening of this song sounds a lot like the opening from the true detective season 1 opening song(The handsome family - far from any road)

  60. JayJay Okocha

    Dulli's voice hasn't lost a thing. Still great as ever.

  61. Stewart Taggart

    Goodbye Dave you were great, one of the greats.

  62. Tobin Durham

    I haven't listened to these guys in years. just felt the urge. this song shows off some of their influences, like Roy orbison and the church.

  63. Gideon K

    RIP Dave

  64. Thomas B.

    Never put sound effects in a music video. It ruins the song as it does at the crescendo here.

  65. Oltg Dyachkov

  88. Sam Sad

    Confusing title, some people think it's about Algiers in North Africa, but actually it's about Algiers, New Orleans .. !!! but then Afghan ????

    Mohd. Hammad

    afghan whigs is a biker gang in US

  89. Zeke Pliskin

    Ray Donovan sent me. But he told me not to talk about it. So I lied to the police instead.

    chris krajchir

    I saw you

    Dave Lainen

    lol that's just how it goes!

    Rondo Hunter

    But of course. While tell the truth when a lie will suffice? Rather lie to police than Ray.
