Franz Ferdinand - L. Wells Lyrics




Great Western Wind catches in your Celtic hair
Flicks it round your face like flames around the sun
In the bright cold air you seem as innocent and fair
As Rita Tushingham in 1961

Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel so good
I wish that I could be as good as you
Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel the good
Beyond the poison in us like you do

LP records in your little hands
Put them on your little dansette for a dance
All those men sing you'll never walk alone
But you'll never let them break your little heart.

Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel so good
I wish that I could be as good as you
Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel the good
Beyond the poison in us like you do

If you have some sort of secret
If you need someone to tell
You can tell me
Because my memory
Always fails
I will forget
And your secret
Will remain
Yes the secret
The secret
Will remain

Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel so good
I wish that I could be as good as you
Well, Lindsey Wells
How I wish that I could feel the good
Beyond the poison in us like you do

Franz Ferdinand L. Wells Comments
  1. King Dedede

    Was this on any of their albums? I'm surprised I'm barely hearing this now!

  2. YERMI KUPRUM

    La canción, no se porque, me hace sentir en otra época, será porque está en blanco y negro¿?
    NO TENGO IDEA
    pero me gusta, sinceramente, de las mejor de Franz Ferdinand, sin duda alguna.

  3. SeeDkngtSeifer

    I like Lindsey. She is so pretty and nice.😍

  4. Yolotzin Yaotl Lennon

    No puedo dejar de escucharla 😍😍😍😍🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  5. TheNekbes

    god damned she's beautiful

  6. Ilham Munadi

    60's french movie vibes. Reminds me of masculin feminin.

    Tenía 12, 13 o 14 años cuando conocí a la chica que me mostró la música de FF. Ahora ella no está conmigo, simplemente se fue y no tengo cómo comunicarme con ella. No pierdo la fé. Espero que ella aún escuche FF y cuando ella escuche esta canción, me recuerde como yo lo hago. Ojalá algún día vea este comentario y piense en la posibilidad de quien soy.

    Alexis
    I was 12, 13 or 14 years old when I met the girl who showed me the music of FF.
    Now she isn't with me, she just left and I can't communicate with her. I don't lose faith, I hope she still listens to FF and when she hears this song, she reminds me like I do it. Hopefully one day I will see this comment and think about the possibility of who I am.

  19. Boundless Lake

    I'm drunk and wondering how I got here and realizing that after more than 250 years after music reached its peak it came to be this hideous fucking shit which reflects the involution the world has been prompted to. Fuck this effing bullshit motherfuckers

  20. Ro Casarini

    Típico video "Beatlánico" versión Franz Ferdinand. 👍

  21. Mikee meep

    one of the most innocent songs of Franz Ferdinand

    These one and "Wine in the afternoon" i think should be in their second record. Damn great songs just for B Sides. ("Jeremy Fraser" was also good, but "Wine.. and "L. Wells" are better).

    Jim Tim

    Me too..glad that as a 1990 born person I had 90's-early 2000's as my childhood and rest of the 2000's as my teenage years..in the prcess I loved alternative rock and Indie rock in the mainstream as a teenager. The teens these days are unlucky not to see these genres in the mainstream.

    Mikee meep

    I heard that it was Bob's classmate at GSA or some sort

    Jim Tim

    Lindsey was one of their good friend in university and she was a very nice human being and they thought she was adorable..which is why they wrote a song about her. I hope she finds this song good.

    Omar3722

    Luis Enrique Castro its on Spotify, just search up the song.

    franz

    Yes spotify, not apple music. And yes vinyl and cd. Fuck who's happy with the shitty quality music on Youtube.

    Youssef Hanna

    It is on Apple Music but it is only available with a UK account, create one.
    I had to do it and now I can have it (same thing with other FF songs)

    Sandro Mio

    How do I find it on Spotify?

  60. Diego Mendes

    daqui a pouco você entra no icloud, mando do ipod daqui a pouco

    Diego Mendes

    +Diego Mendes LOL mdssss

  61. raymileshun

    She reminds me of Clara Oswald :O (Jenna Coleman)

    What if the whole video is about her trying to find the Doctor, and WHAT IF this video is tied with The Prodigy - Invaders Must Die video, and that would explain what Noah Clarke does in that video: he tries to find the Doctor too :O
    Maybe the Doctor leaved him without a word or a goodbye and he got very pissed of, and became obsessed with finding the Doctor and he wants to take revenge, and that is why he make giant spider things: he wants to leave a sign for the Doctor. :D
    (sorry for the bad English :D )

    quintabeagle

    OMG i spent the whole video thinking the same!

    Gianfranco Farid

    Doctor who? :V

    José Luiz

    Solo Playing you can call him Doctor

  62. Gianfranco Farid

    Se parece hasta en el peinado a mi novia

  63. gabriel arias

    excelente cancion...

  64. Fanny Flowers

    So amazing song!!!!!! I love Franz Ferdinand

  65. Nansy Pansy

    Wow I had no idea about this song's existence few minutes ago even though I have FF collection! The song is pretty good! Really overlooked song!

  66. Mauricio FA

    lalala...

  67. Yoana Faustino

    amo esta cancion <3

  68. Jimmy J. Rustle

    This has such the feel of a Beatles' song, I am not sure why but it definitely has that mid 1960s feel to it, and it doesn't help that Lindsey is wearing clothes from the 60's either.

    Филипп Ровенский

    This song is very 1960'ish, but I don't agree about The Beatles. It's pretty much the mod sound like early The Who or The Small Faces

  69. Olivia Fischer

    I love this song so much! It really doesn't get enough attention. This girl looks a lot like Jenna Coleman, Whovians, you'll know who I mean!

  70. JuanFer Perez

    Esta cancion tiene mucho signicado para mi :')

  71. StraifPlays

    this girl is so fucking pretty, god
    i think i found my platonic love

    Hapie Star

    @StraifPlays
    Fair enough and I know what you mean.

    Daniel Ward

    +StraifPlays it's a thing I'm asexual and still think some people are pretty

    Gabriel Pontual

    Is it Felicity Jones?

    eren can duyar

    I was looking for her. I've found that her name is Saskia Pomeroy and I think this is her personal website http://saskiapomeroy.com/about/

    AND I KNOW I'M A REAL STALKER.

    eren can duyar

    Also if you google the name, there's a picture of her.

  72. JuanFer Perez

    Esto es mejor que Poli de Zoé :P

    ALEX 2

    JuanFer Perez
    hahaha pues si la de Zoe es una copia hahahaha
    y dices que es mejor hahaha

    Pamela Reyes

    Es gracioso porque el video de Poli salió en 2009 y éste en 201o. xd

  73. brendonwife (Rena Sumeragi)

    One of the best and most overlooked FF songs.

    rather cool song!

  77. Disilife

    Zoe-Poli

    Blenda Esmeralda

    zoe se los copio  XD  que aburridos zoe  

    Carolina Estefania

    Zoé siguió las influencias de Pink Floyd y tiene un parecido de "Poli" a "See Emily Play" por lo tanto jamas copiaron a Franz Ferdinand y si así fuera les salio Hermoso el video.

    Diana Mt

    @Carolina Estefania El video de"See Emily play" se parece en algunas cosas en ser para una chica y en el color del video, pero a mi parecer Poli es idéntico a este video,todo es mega parecido y yo creo que Zoé si copio el video a Franz♡.Aún así creo que Poli no está nada mal ;)

    Carolina Estefania

    La verdad no sé, y si fuera así les salió DI VI NO <3 Jajajaja

  78. Andres Cruz

    Alguien sabe quien es la chica que modela en el video?
    anyone knows who is the girl in the video?

    Carla Martinez

    Su twitter, aunque esta inactiva hace añ[email protected]

  79. Honey Liscious

    gorgeous girl

  80. Pragyna Divakar

    I came to listen to this song because someone asked this question on the Q&A page of Katherines. John says it must be a coincidence because she was called that before this song existed.

  81. Rich Lawson

    Every few months or so I remember this tune and goodness me it makes me smile. Take Me Out ushered me into adulthood but L.Wells will always take me back to when I was a teen first in love :-)

  82. ludiekmagick

    I don't think I can post the link, but if you google john green franz ferdinand, one of the results is a Tumblr post in which John Green claims it's an "amazing coincidence".

  83. Luke Porter

    Franz Ferdinand also has a song called Katherine Kiss Me! This just might be the craziest coincidence in the history of the world!

  84. Sam Durell

    Shit me, this was out 7 years ago?!

  85. JuliaLaurenMorales

    their b-sides sound like the beatles

  86. Gary Kennedy

    Anyone else spot a lot of similarities with the Kaiser chiefs?

  87. samuel awkarin

    masculin feminin

  88. Lindsay Adored

    the only song with my name in it and it's such a happy song!

  89. Alvaro Casanova

    it sounds a little big like Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! from ABBA.
    but just a little IMO

  90. donkosaurus

    brb, trawling for some more FF B-sides

  91. Judit Krasznai

    This reminds me so much of another song, I just can't remember which -_-

  92. 32Hellogoodbye

    Anyone ever read An Abundance of Katherines by John Green?

  93. Dario Di Matteo

    My Franz Ferdinand's favourite song so 60' and so beatiful:)

  94. Joaquin Guerrra

    Damn i love this

  95. Gustavo Souza Pereira dos Santos

    olha o Brasil ae gente kkk
