Arctic Monkeys - Black Treacle Lyrics




Lately I've been seeing things
Belly button piercings
In the sky at night
When we're side by side

And I don't mean to rain on anybody's cabriolet
One of those games you're gonna lose
But you wanna play it just in case

Now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky
More like black treacle than tar
Black treacle
Somebody told the stars you're not coming out tonight
And so they found a place to hide

Does it help you stay up late?
Does it help you concentrate?
Does it tune you in when you chew your chin?
Am I ruining your fun?

And you talk the talk alright
But do you walk the walk or catch the train?
You wanted it, you got it
But you don't want it now

Now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky
More like black treacle than tar
Black treacle
Somebody told the stars you're not coming out tonight
And so they found a place to hide

And now I'm out of place and I'm not getting any wiser
I feel like the sundance kid behind the synthesiser
And I tried last night to pack away a laugh
Like a key under the mat
But it never seems to be there when you want it

Black treacle
Black treacle
Black treacle

Arctic Monkeys Black Treacle Comments
  1. Lock Star Goddess

    Was this really 7years ago I was playing bad getaway girl in the fronts with Alex and making out with Matt in the back seat then dancing around a bad ass Vintage care in my black latex dress in an alley In Los Angeles after they hand picked me for the video r and right before they Blew the fuck up?!
    Would have love to do a video for" Knee Socks" ...I think we should just for shits and giggles ( Alex if you are reading this) even thought the band has once again on to new territory Hunter S.Thompson acid trip Vegas sleaze... which I get and like even though A M was their best sexiest Album IMO ...and they did not have much videos for that album( shoulda did one for "Knee Sox!"

    Lately I've been seeing things

    And now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky

    And so they found a place to hide
    Does it help you stay up late?
    Does it help you concentrate?
    Is it true you win when you chew your chin?
    Am I ruining your fun?
    And you talk the talk alright
    Do you walk the walk or catch the train?
    You wanted it, you got it
    But you don't want it now
    Now it's getting dark and the sky looks sticky
    More like black treacle than tar
    Black treacle
    Somebody told the stars you're not coming out tonight

    Black treacle
    Black treacle
    Black treacle
