Agnes Obel - Close Watch Lyrics




Never win and never lose
There's nothing much to choose
Between the right and wrong
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Still things aren't quite the same
Between you and me

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I still hear your voice at night
When I turn out the light
And try to settle down
But there's nothing I can do
'Cause I can't live without you
Any way at all

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

Tick-tock...

Oh I'm sure
No harm will come to you no more
'Cause I find myself in your hands
Don't you be so hard on yourself

Oh oh ooh ooh

    Watched October Gale and when she was on the boat in the beginning of the movie. I was paying attention to this song more than the movie lol! I have never heard this girl but I really like this song. Props to the person that used this song in the movie!

    Never win and never lose

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

    I still hear your voice at night

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

    To my beloved William. I dedicate this song to you. It makes me cry everytime I hear it since you died. you loved me through cancer; I survived and you died. I don't understand why. I wish God would give me cancer again so I could be in Heaven with you. I will love you always. Love, Mia

  38. Mal Bredova

    Nikdy nevyhrát a nikdy neprohrát
    Není moc na výběr
    Mezi dobrým a špatným
    Nic neztrati a nic nezískat
    Je to docela stejné
    mezi tebou a mnou

    Dávám pozor na své srdce
    Dávám pozor na své srdce

    Stále v noci slyším tvůj hlas
    Když zhasnu světlo
    Snažím se uklidnit
    Ale není tu nic, co můžu dělat
    Protože bez tebe nemůžu odejít
    Jakýmkoliv způsobem

    Dávám pozor na své srdce
    Dávám pozor na své srdce
    Dávám pozor na své srdce

    ...Oh Jsem si jistá
    Žádná zbraň se k tobě už nedostane
    Protože já sama se nacházím ve tvých rukách
    Nebuď na sebe tak tvrdý

    Oh Oh Ohhh Ohh

    This song is so beautiful: it's sad and happy at the same time, it's light and darkness, sorrow and love; Agnes' voice is full of feeling and it's soft and breathy like an angel. This singer and songwriter is magnificent and sublime. I love her.

  70. Simon White

    This song was written by John Cale from his 1975 album Helen Of Troy.  Another version is on his Music For a New Society, 1982. 

    The only other non-original song in this album is Katie Cruel, known since the US War of Independence. The best version is by Karen Dalton in 1971.

  71. RAI

    2:13 on is my favorite part of the song.

  72. Ashley Robertson

    I love this song.

  73. Luis Lopez

    Kate, Tori, Alison, Cat, PJ, Borjk, Beth…I am sure you know her by now, but I would like you to welcome to the realm a new member…As you know her name is Agnes, Agnes Obel……. Intense. Impeccable. 

    Tori, you held that record for 19 years….  She obliterated it: 30 seconds from "who is she?" to "AAA+ certified  music royalty" 

  74. Nana Cheremisina

    это  прекрасно 

  75. badasscuber23

    this song makes me want to cry , it remindes me of the movie offender , poor girl , and i feel so sad for her .
