Afghan Whigs, The - When We Two Parted Lyrics




Baby, I see you've made yourself all sick again
Didn't I do a good job of pretending
You're saying that the victim doesn't want it to end
Good, I get to dress up and play the assassin again
It's my favorite
It's got personality

I should have seen this shit coming down the hall
Every night I spent in that bed with you facing the wall
If I could have only once heard you scream
To feel you were alive
Instead of watching you abandoning yourself

Baby, you can open your eyes now
And please allow me to present you with a clue
If I inflict the pain
Then baby only I can comfort you, yeah

Out of the night we come
And into the night we go
If it starts to hurt you
Then you have to say so

Out of the night we come
And into the night we go
If it starts to hurt you
Then you have to say so

Out of the night we come
And into the night we go
If it starts to hurt you
Then you have to say so

Afghan Whigs, The When We Two Parted Comments
  1. Cole Younger

    that was the greatest thing ive ever heard.

  2. alberto meli

    rock, alas, has just one single recognisable sound left, and it's theirs

  3. mark Buchan

    Rosser 🖤

    Brewnoe

    Seen Blues Traveler, P-Funk, Helmet+FnM , Almighty Senators ... would trade at least 2 for a Whigs show

  4. conjured_up_skeletons

    this version is so chill back with a few

  5. marc wiers

    One of the more iconic, underrated songs of the 90's.

  6. conjured_up_skeletons

    This sh·t made me evaporate! The 8 dislikes... eight poor souls with a lump of dark matter where their heart used to be.
    1:15 - that bass intro... fuck... me.

  7. Ger C

    Eviscerate me!

  8. StaggerLee

    May be one of the most beautiful, intense, amazing things I've ever listened to----

  9. anthony tambourini

    Fucking sublime

  10. dankerssss

    wait... is that Drake - Over My Dead Body...?

    Peter Morgan

    Indeed it is, Greg appreciates the finer things in life

    conjured_up_skeletons

    @Peter Morgan indeed he does, though Drake don't belong in no 'Finer things in life' category.

    Peter Morgan

    Ah but he does, at least with that particular song from that particular album.

  11. Antonio Gonzalez

    Fuckin' great

  12. mysterytrain14

    Love it

  13. Phil Warder

    Amaze-balls!  So haunting, visceral.

  14. odiumimbues

    this user only sticks to popular bands. thats fine, but dont expect it to be true in the title.

  15. Gangy

    I don't know how I got here but am stunned into beautiful silence at the sound of this band... why oh why have I never heard of them ... totally blown away...x

    conjured_up_skeletons

    Same here. I'm Fkg enchanted!

  16. flycreeper

    The version on Gentlemen is great enough, but arranged like this... simply stunning.

    Saw them play this arrangement in London, and was one of the greatest nights I've ever experienced. Just goes to show, for me at least, how powerful arranging (not just writing and recording a tune), can be.

    conjured_up_skeletons

    In complete agreement.

  18. Redawna Kalynchuk

    No one has ever allowed me to explore the dark side on my world until Dulli. His lyrics take me there. To those moments. Those memories. Raw. Real. There.

    conjured_up_skeletons

    No argument there. Fan since late 90's. The Picasso of lyricism, only dulli calms my inner demons.

  19. Brandon Ingram

    Wow just fing amazing! Such a great tune.

  20. Chris Collins

    I am freaking star struck with this band.

    conjured_up_skeletons

    Are you the original singer of 80's Majesty (pre-Dream Theater), Chris Collins?

  21. Pathduck

    "Good, I get to dress up and play the assassin again. It's my favorite, it's got personality."... Such powerful lyrics.

    conjured_up_skeletons

    "If I inflict the pain babe only I can comfort you"... one of his grown-up songwriting moments.
