Elbow - Colour Fields Lyrics




All clear
Good Lord
Did well to be ignored
Your falling temperature like cooling kisses
All through your head
A made-up water’s edge
A summer gone on tabling fabled blisses

And I’d love to see you waving
From the far side of the swim
Gathered in by a waiting troop of the open- hearted
Where colour field meets canvas
And the picture breathes you in
Where all the stories meant for you have already started

Bright girl, dead town
Walking tall but blown around
The secret chainmail gown of your father’s blessing
Bright girl, dead town
Open mouths for miles around
I still see you keeping those dough boys guessing

And I’d love to see you waving
From the far side of the swim
Gathered in by a waiting troop of the open- hearted
Where colour field meets canvas
And the picture breathes you in
Where all the stories meant for you have already started

Bright girl, dead town
Bright girl, dead town
Bright girl, dead town
Open mouths for miles around
Bright girl, dead town

Bright girl, dead town
Bright girl, dead town
Bright girl, dead town
Open mouths for miles around
Bright girl, dead town

    Elbow, must be one of the best bands if not the best band to come out of Manchester. Seen them last year with my son at the arena. Awesome concert.👍👍👍

  2. Timothy Dannenhoffer

    I love you Elbow

  3. Jane Ross

    I made a mixtape of my favourite Elbow songs and this one was the ending of it. Such relatable lyrics, bring a tear to my eye really.

  4. Spacegoat

    Heard this in Next, thought he was saying 'bright girl, dead sound'. Close enough for me to find it on google anyway, cool song

  5. David Scott
