Elbow - Jesus Is A Rochdale Girl Lyrics

I have a drop-leaf window
With cats and broken yards
Sunflowers and paint cans
And stolen shopping carts

And nothing to be proud of
And nothing to regret
All of that to make as yet
All of that to make as yet

I have a single heartbreak
I celebrate and mourn
A single shining sister
And all the tricks of dawn

A single yellow duvet
A single switch to flick
But a thousand boxes yet to tick
A thousand boxes yet to tick

And Jesus is a Rochdale girl
And forty-five CDs
Got a house that you can smoke in
So all my friends found me

And they found me full of myself
And bloody-minded will
And as yet a box to fill
And as yet a box to fill

    I think it's pretty easy to overlook Elbow as a seriously "vanilla" band. But digging just a little into the simplicity of sentiment in their songs, and you find a band who are so precise and considered that their message speaks to us all. I'm 18, around the age Guy was when he wrote this, and it feels so right to me. So whether you're looking forward to it, remembering it or experiencing it, we all know this feeling. To me, jesus is a brighton girl. Perfect.

    their latest albumn is probably their weakest (In my opinion). Still has 5 or so great songs though including this one.
