Cocteau Twins - Bluebeard Lyrics




Aliveness
Exploration
Aliveness
Energy

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?

Aliveness
Exploration
Fulfillment
Creativity

It may be diverting
For some part of him

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Or are you toxic for me?
Will you betray my confidence?

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Or are you toxic for me?
Will you betray my confidence?

Naming things is empowering
I balance, walk, and coordinate myself, alive
Aliveness energy

Healthy dependence
And healthy independence
And healthy assurances
This love's a nameless dream
And healthy boundaries
And how long would you miss me

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Or are you toxic for me?
Will you mistreat me
Or betray all my confidence?

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Or are you toxic for me?
Will you mistreat me
Or betray all my confidence?

Are you the right man for me?
Are you safe? Are you my friend?
Or are you toxic for me?
Will you mistreat me
Or betray all my confidence?

  7. Bill C. Leighty

    a great song to fall in love with a serial killer to

  8. I Am Tenderhearted

    Liz is an angel on earth❤️

  9. 777pusher

    Was a massive Fan of Blue Bell Knoll and Heaven or Las Vegas productions!!! Basically the two LPs got my hooked on the Twins!!

    When this CD (when I switched from Cassette) came out, this was initially the ‘stand-out’ track! My opinion changed, over the years, unlike my absolute love for the band!!

  10. Dave not David

    Goosebumps every single time

  11. Peter Zachos

    Guitars: amazing.
    Vocals. immeasurably beautiful.
    Hairstyle: ill-advised.

  17. Chameleon Chris

    I have the bass player's autograph, soon have all 3! love this group.

  18. pinkorange red

    By an amazing coincidence Cocteau Twins had the good grace to release this single the day my son was born so this beautiful song has taken on an extra significance, still adore it 25 years later!

  19. Gouud Mason

    Robin Guthrie is such a cute boy

  20. Domingo C Parada

    Hypnotic voice that can put me in such a happy place. Miss the 90’s 😊❤️

  30. servalan65

    Adore Cocteau Twins. Adore this album. Bit of a pinnacle for them. Saw them at the Royal Albert Hall in 1996. Glorious!

    Matheus Domingues

    I'm twenty four and I live in Brazil. If could wish I wanna born early just to do all this... I absolutely love Cocteau Twins and old musics from 40', 50', 60', 70' ,80' and 90' decades

  31. Fred Virtuoso

    the most precious and adorable voice ever

  32. Patricia Richardson

  36. is Lucario

    “Meet Koo Dae Sung”

  37. Lydia Eck

    As much as I like this song, the video reminds me of a Windows 98 screensaver.

    Raphael Motta

    Ginger

    @Raphael Motta LMFAO!

    Randy Peppercorn

    It reminds me of Coolio

  38. 777pusher

    I Am the right man for you, Liz!! Then and now!!

  39. Sergio Verry

    1993 - the most talently year in the world

  40. Zali Becquerel

    "Are you the right man for me?"
    - No I am not. I am not the right man for anybody. Maybe someday I will be. But for now, I am a toxic girl.

  41. Jeremy Ashton

    "Aliveness Exploration. Aliveness Energy. Are you the right man for me? Are you safe? Are you my friend? Or are you toxic for me? Will you betray my confidence? Will you mistreat me and betray my confidence?" Bluebeard seems to be a very happy song until you read the lyrics and hear Liz talk about this song. It is not happy song. She says that this song was about "waking up", coming out of her shell, feeling her feelings, and feeling angry (30 years of anger). Unfortunately, I think this song is about how Robin mistreated her and betrayed her trust over the years throughout their relationship. And, is why she broke up with him 26 years ago.

  42. PG 1҉8

    their songs sounds just like memories

  43. littlenige

    A painting in sound. Beautiful.

  44. Christer Espevoll

    if someone had told me years ago  that all women in Scotland look and sound like Elizabeth Fraser as she appeared here at the age of 30 , I would want to believe them & I would be on a plane moving to Scotland. sadly we know that is not the case

  45. Patricio Poblete Caro

    Cocteau Twins una delle migliori band al mondo .❤❤

    marenzio boffi

    All' epoca non li conoscevo , cosa mi sono perso ....Una delle voci ,e modo di cantare pazzesco

  53. David Dubois

    Or are you toxic for me. Sounds like a fair question. The brilliance of the Twins

  54. francisco lopez moya

    An ethereal song, lyrics & music allways!

  55. Stan Chick

    hey.. remember when koo dae-sung took randy johnson for a double, then scored from second on a bunt? yeah. it was Pretty Good.

    this song is Pretty Good.

  57. PhukIT1865

    I ♥ 王菲 over and over Crimson and Clover haha

  58. Helder Julio

    José António Silva Vilhena

    Também eu amigo. Saúde

    Luiz Gustavo Inacio Antunes

    Época boa

  59. joey Veloso

    Jon Bois sent me here. good song

  60. Martin McCulloch

    Did ye Aye.....

  61. Secone00

    I'll never understand how Robin never thought about why she was so dedicated to the Bluebeard folktale for this song, with only one album after this before their relationship completely caused her to snap. I'll never understand how Robin didn't think this was her reaching out to try and get a message across to him.

  62. Paul Moss

    I love when they turn down the background on this......sublime

  63. i davo

    I lived & breathed this band, their sound, Liz's vocals.
    This particular tune was relevant when I asked myself if I should continue in a relationship.
    Listening to it many years later it evokes feelings from my younger self.
    Amazing sound & Liz is one of the finest vocalists in my music collection.
    Nice to be amongst fans here - best wishes everyone.

  64. Jackass Whisky and Pinto Beans

    Existence is proven(sort of) by this music(I still doubt).

  65. TheUtuber999

    My friend said Liz looks like Ellen Degeneres in this video.

  66. 777pusher

    Having heard the catalog, I can totally understand why some like the older CT, and why others like the more recent CT. I prefer the later albums - Blue Bell Knoll onward

  67. pinkorange red

    fittingly my son was born on the day this single was released, born in the middle of the night, I popped into town from the hospital to buy him & the new mum a pressie and bought this too, so consequently this will always be my absolute fave Cocteau's song :)

    Paul O’Donnell

    pinkorange red & you named him Cocteau ?

    mark1138

    he must be a king !!!!

    777pusher

    Paul O’Donnell -
    Brilliant!! I am looking soooo forward to seeing someone named Cocteau

    Cody

    pinkorange red he was the right man for you

  68. jose rosa

    Love it!!!

  69. M Grissom

    Have been a fan since early 80's.

  70. patrescia gilliland

  75. PhukIT1865

    I must have listened to Faye Wong's version of this a thousand times until I heard the original

    PhukIT1865

    and guess what? Faye does it better!!

    vance wright

    @vance wright pillow biter

  76. JC Jactix

    I remember this song was played during the end credits if Highlander The Final Dimension. It doesn't fit the movie, but still a nice song to hear after an average movie at best (Like "Kiss From a Rose" played during the end of Batman Forever).

  77. acrovader

    Their prettiest song.

  78. Vx1000

    What a cool fucking video

  79. Bigbadbob

    Can anyone re post three swept in UK as UMG have made a serious effort to block it`s video. Cheers BigbadBob.

  80. Jose Schmoe

    Reminds me of my Miami years ('92-'95). I had moved there from Chicago due to job relocation. Miami was so musically backwards back then. Stone age. I used to go back to Chicago to stock up on music CDs cuz music like this was impossible to fine in Miami. And whenever I played it and someone would hear it I'd get this funny stares like "What in the HELL kinda music are you listening to?!" In spite of that hearing this brings me back to those days. For better or for worse.

    Ayelén Romano

    Nice! Thanks for sharing

    Damien Holland

    Yeah, most people in the US are still like that. You show them a particularly powerful vocal trance song, or something like this song, and they have absolutely no feeling or reaction at all. More likely to appreciate rap songs about selling drugs and shooting people.

  81. Carla A.

    Más de 20 años y me produce lo mismo😍😍

  82. Lawrence C

    she made that hairstyle cool for four minutes, and I love that

  83. David Dominguez

    Lyrics anyone? I love this song so much!

  84. mark kelly

    Superb song and band. Shame that they are history now !!

  85. Popeline Out

    ❤️I born with this, 4AD life forever ,lovely mrs F.

  86. Jake Bohannan

    Best song ever!

  87. Captain Sensible

    Too vulgar for a cocteaus song. No 4AD no magic.

  88. Homeworld Music

    What? No comments in 3 years? Y'all need to spread this around.

  89. vincent barrios

    this song is so awesome it is one of those songs that I listen to frequently I listen since 2012

  90. Captain Sensible

    Bah! Cocteaus are nothing without 4AD

    Texturas75

    So? Could you have imagined 4AD without Cocteau Twins in their roster?

  93. Myles Matisse

    So gorgeous on every level!

  94. infamousNfamous

    Other than the fact that this is just a great song....its also one of my faves cuz its possibly the the most understandable one in their discography lmao

  95. Julio Avendaño
