Future Islands - Inch Of Dust Lyrics




A part of me you have
A part of me you hold
Apart from me you stand
And there's parts that you had stole

Littering in the cupboards
Like some pieces of the puzzle
A nest just like a mother
The dampness of your sweater

It's never put together
As I watched you from the window
Behind the curtains you turned
Slowly as a teather
Wrap around you tightly
This love is built in metal
Fall around in shadows

It's never put together
It's never put together
Behind the curtains you turned
Fall slowly as a feather

The part of you I have
The part of you I hide
The parts of you I hold
The parts you left behind

Call me
I'll be there always

And call me
I'll be there always

And call me
I'll be there always

Call me
I'll be there always

Call me
I'll be there always

Part of me you have
A part of me you hold
Apart from me you stand
And there's parts that you had stole

The part of you I have
The part of you I hide
The parts of you I stole
The parts you left behind

    La humedad de tu suéter


    Nunca está unido
    Mientras he veía por la ventana
    Entre las cortinas, apareciste
    Lento, como un teatro
    Cubriéndote estrechamente
    El amor está construido en metal
    Se cae alrededor en sombras

    Nunca está unido
    Nunca está unido

    Entre las cortinas, apareciste

    Cae lento como una pluma

    La parte tuya que yo tengo
    La parte tuya que escondo
    La parte tuya que sostengo
    Las partes que dejaste atrás

    Llámame
    Siempre estaré ahí

    Y llamar
    Siempre estaré ahí

    Y llamar
    Siempre estaré ahí

    Llámame
    Siempre estaré ahí

    Llámame
    Siempre estaré ahí

    La parte mía que tienes
    Sostienes una parte de mí
    Te mantienes alejado/a de mí
    Y hay partes que te has robado

    La parte tuya que yo tengo
    La parte tuya que escondo
    Las partes tuyas que robo
    Las partes que dejaste atrás

    TheThoughtful1

    You collect them in the cupboards
    Like the pieces of a puzzle
    And nest just like a mother
    In the dampness of your sweater
    And it's never put together
    As I've watched you from the window
    Behind the curtains, winter
    Moves slowly as a tether
    To wrap around you tightly
    As lovers will in meadows
    To fall in love with shadows
    Where the snow is all but melted
    And it's never put together
    It's never put together
    Behind the curtains, winter
    Falls slowly as a feather

    Nice thx

  50. Denis McGurk

    so happy we have tickets to see them in Glasgow this year 😀😀😀

  51. Chris Cisneros

    I hate this song because its too short

  52. Kiko Hiraldo

    awesome group, awesome music

  53. bob blakey

    AGAIN AND AGAIN BRILLIANT

  54. Gareth Thompson

    Does anyone know the meaning behind the song?

    TheThoughtful1

    My interpretation is that it's about an intense former relationship where both walked away different people - each with a "part" to contribute to a new relationship, but with the remainder left behind. The relationship was old enough to accumulate an inch of dust. He risked more as he loved more and still loves as he grasps to a fantasy that she'll call - he'll be there always. This song is relatable as in most relationships there is inequitable reciprocity in love.

  55. Daniel Dermardiros

    Al Pacino, GodFather 0:04

  73. andrew moonbeam

    I look at myself in the mirror while singing this song. I can't even begin to tell you how disturbing the spectacle is. Especially when I'm wearing the tutu. 'It's never put together'

    J Carr

  76. 深瀬Hikari

    Relaxing song ♥

  77. Chill Donkey

    The universe is contagious

  78. Mark Grein

    I honestly do not understand what all the fuss is about.  This would have passed for decent but ultimately forgettable music in 1983.  I just don't understand the Future Island hysteria.  Is it a case of nostalgia for the uncomplicated synth sound from thirty years ago? I dunno....  But hey-- if it floats your boat, then by all means pass it along and enjoy it!

    Mark Grein

    @M Aze Hiya M. Nope, not really looking for trouble, just expressing an honest opinion. After hearing so much about them and their meteoric rise, I couldn't wait to hear them. I listened to many songs, watched music videos, live concerts on youtube, and it just didn't work for me. Try and try as I might, it all just felt flat as a pancake. So I genuinely wanted to hear opinions from others about why they are so excited about them. No injury intended, just a lonely dissenting voice drowning in a sea of Future Islands fans :)

    Mehdi A.

    Alright then, you have the right to express yourself. :) I was overreacting a bit.

    Evan Berry

    Music is funny, how so many people can like something and others could not possibly understand how anyone could enjoy something. I feel like music is often an acquired taste. People's opinion constantly evolving and changing based upon their circle of influence, personal discovery, desire to uniquely identify themselves, etc.. Ever listen to the things you loved so much in your youth? You can probably find nostalgia in it, but likely have progressed beyond that particular genre/sound. Exciting to see people so passionate about music though. It's one of those things that can unite us in a nonsensical way, but why argue over it?

    Mark Grein

    Well said , Evan. I have to admit, I of course knew that i was in for a world full of pain by commenting negatively on the band. But I was still surprised how personally some people took my rather mild critique. And you're right--- the way we can connect through music is a wonderful mystery. That's why I of course don't expect anyone to explain to me exactly why the band Future Islands is so great. You like it or you don't, that's the way music works. Cheers

  79. Lucas Muniz

    ♡ Fiona and Steve ♡

    Lucia Martinez

    It's from a movie?

  88. MrBstar84

    utterly amazing tune, their best without doubt.

  89. Nicolette

    I love this. I found myself just sitting here and nodding my head along with the beat of the song. 

  90. Daylin Zephier

    that moment at the :26 sec mark when the first synth beat drops as one couple begins their stride, that's the moment that has made me come back to this video every few weeks for the past few years.

    Jaque Luccherini

    Daylin Zephier oh my god. YES EXACTLY

    kyren
