Beth Orton - Galaxy Of Emptiness (Live) Lyrics




The stars light a sky
On a galaxy of emptiness tonight
Though I'm happiest
When there's no reason for me to be

With no one's expectation to weigh heavy on my heart
And so much hope it sometimes tears me all apart
Won't you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?
Could you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?

'Cause there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole galaxy of emptiness tonight
A galaxy of emptiness tonight

The stars light a sky
On a gutter full of broken dreams tonight
Though I'm not content, that's the way it seems to be
Still, I've been fighting all week
Though I don't know what for
Hoping someone else, somewhere near knows the score
Won't you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?
Could you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?

And there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
There's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole galaxy of emptiness tonight

Monkey see, monkey do
I spent my whole life surrounded by people like you
With all that expectation to weigh heavy on your heart
But no ideas to later tear it all apart
Won't you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?
Could you please
Knock me off my feet for a while?

'Cause there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight
Beware the galaxy of emptiness tonight
'Cause there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight
Yeah, there's a galaxy of emptiness
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight
Beware the galaxy of emptiness tonight
(A galaxy of emptiness)
(A whole galaxy of stars)

    And me...2019...since '92...tecnicly first good album...garage 4 ever...

  3. Andrea Balestri

    I listened to this song a lot in the first 2000s. It reminds me to the trip hop golden age.

  4. Steve Semenuk

    Perfect mix of plaintiveness and peacefulness knocks me off my feet for a long while

  10. Sally Smith

    I could easily listen to this for hours in a loop. Thanks for posting.

  11. Rui Adriano

    1 conscience 0 dimension

    a galaxy of emptyness...

  12. abcabc22100

    I just love this little girl. I love her so much. nice. nice. and nice.

    Sally Smith

    little girl? is there a 3 yo in the video?

    John Erkman

    Beth is I think pushing 6' tall & Imogen Heap is TALLER than Jay Leno in her bare feet!

    Robert Anderson

    compared to 350 t0 400 lb beast she is small

  13. Dylan Corbitt

    i would love to hear a duet with her and jose gonzalez , could be the most haunting song ever

  14. millseypne32

    Prob my fav song.
    Tear in my eye...

  15. Peter Whiteman

    Quite a superb song, thank you Beth and thank you for an awesome concert last night at the O2 in Oxford. Sounding great as ever, loved every minute.

  16. MsGeekomatic

    Beth is "hot" for a lot of us- even us girls (even tho she's str8- dammit)...

  17. rord

    someone doesnt like this?...now inst that a shame.

  18. stromer24

    i remember when this came on. I recorded this episode and watch it over and over and over lol. this was my introduction to Beth Orton. truly amazing

  19. Patrick Dunn

    Wouldn't mind to be knocked off my feet for a while. Need to find someone like her.

  20. raythenation

    Such a beautiful song, I haven't heard it in ages. Its so sad, yet it is strangely consoling.

  21. ikhsan syaban

    damn, that's awesome

  22. riodv

    This is my FAVORITE Beth O. song. :) Love the Beth...

  23. Carol McGuigan

    Loveeeeeeeeee this song...

  24. triboy46

    Nope. I'm just as amazed.

  25. honduhmatic

    This is awesome. Beth is now a few years older (haha, we all are too) but her live show last year was awesome (Danforth Theatre in Toronto) - if you get a chance, see her.

  26. Pindraak

    Keep it on the tt, augwest, but what you want is an audio hijacking program and a sound editing program. Then you can make an ok recording of anything you can listen to.

  27. Paul O'Halloran

    its Beth doing her thing acoustic .

  28. aqwew

    Wow, that version is really magic, especially the outro from 5:05 onwards. The audience must have been afraid to breath...

  29. Rui Adriano

    it's the first time i've heard this version and have to say that it's brilliant. it's a bit different but it's probably better than the album version.

  30. KDC

    Yep, album version much better...not liking the key...or the guitar arpeggios..not doing anything for me at all this..

  31. znatiželjac

    its nice and great like this, but album version that i heard first and after looong time recently has something...more...
    what you guys think?

  32. musicmind9 ISRAEL

    on the cd this song has a long dreamy intro you can zone out to

  33. znatiželjac

    no no.. my mistake.. album version sounds different.. so..it was her all the time:)

  34. alkoholipoezija

    somehow I got addicted to this song. didn't even realise till I found myself humming it constantly.. it's just stuck in my head

  35. cjpo

    This has to be one of the best pieces of music ever written.

    Thanks for uploading this.

  36. znatiželjac

    cant stop listen it sometimes...

  37. znatiželjac

    is that original?
    i remember that some guy was singing that...

  38. znatiželjac

    i was surching soooo long..... thank you!!!!

  39. Rachel Stone

    Beth yet again shows how amazing her musical talent is.
