Jesus And Mary Chain, The - April Skies Lyrics




Hey honey what you trying to say
As I stand here
Don't you walk away
And the world comes tumbling down
Hand in hand in a violent life
Making love on the edge of a knife
And the world comes tumbling down
And it's hard
For me to say
And it's hard
For me to stay
I'm going down
To be by myself
I'm going back
For the good of my health
And there's one thing
I couldn't do
Sacrifice myself to you
Sacrifice
Baby baby I just can't see
Just what you mean to me
I take my aim and I fake my words
I'm just your long time curse
And if you walk away
I can't take it
But that's the way that you are
And that's the things that you say
But now you've gone too far
With all the things you say
Get back to where you come from
I can't help it
Under the April skies
Under the April sun
Sun grows cold
Sky gets black
And you broke me up
And now you won't come back
Shaking hand, life is dead
And a broken heart
And a screaming head
Under the April sky

    I love this song so much. I can’t explain it, but it gives me such a weird nostalgic feeling. I love it. I feel sorry for all the people who havent heard this, they are missing out

    [Verse 1]
    Hey, honey, what you trying to say?
    As I stand here, don't you walk away
    And the world comes tumbling down
    Hand in hand in a violent life
    Making love on the edge of a knife
    And the world comes tumbling down

    [Chorus 1]
    And it's hard for me to say
    And it's hard for me to stay
    I'm going down to be by myself
    I'm going back for the good of my health
    And there's one thing I couldn't do
    Sacrifice myself to you
    Sacrifice

    [Verse 2]
    Baby, baby, I just can't see
    Just what you mean to me
    I take my aim and I fake my words
    I'm just your longtime curse
    And if you walk away
    I can't take it

    [Chorus 2]
    But that's the way that you are
    And that's the things that you say
    But now you've gone too far
    With all the things you say
    Get back to where you come from
    I can't help it, under the April skies
    Under the April skies
    Under the April sun
    Under the April skies

    [Bridge]
    Under the April sun
    Under the April sun
    Under the April skies
    Under the April sun
    Under the April skies

    [Verse 3]
    The sun grows cold, the sky gets black
    And you broke me up and now you won't come back
    Shaking hand, life is dead
    And a broken heart and a screaming head
    Hey, hey

    [Outro]
    Under the April skies
    Under the April sun
    Under the April skies
    Under the April skies

    Darren Smith

    @Eduardo bracamonte alvarez Calm down, mate!

  24. Anthony White

    Weren't these guys brothers? Who cares. They fucking rocked. They were one of the best of post modern. If musical justice prevailed they would be down with The Stones, Beatles, Queen, and some other cool bands most people don't know. AKA Replacements, DrivinNCryin, Son Volt, and another who has. Wilco

  25. Eduardo Mota

    Fuck TWD !
    My old age brought me here.

  26. Paul Stacey

    237 people need their ears syringeing.

    Ty boys

  40. Justafriend

    Can't stop listening. 🎧 Such a beautiful song 💚

  41. Paul G

    The lead guitar sound is truly epic. It's been in my mind since I first heard it. It will never leave me. I know it may sound daft to some but because I've never seen this video before, I always pictured two singers in this group. One called Jesus Chain on lead vocals and the other, maybe his sister Mary Chain on backing vocals. That all changed when I saw the video for the first time.

    And now you won't come back
    Shaking hand, life is dead

  43. the420xtc

    woohooooooooooooooo beautiful this song always get my blood flowing

  44. chareles john

    Actually, TWD, not TED. And Scott Gimple is no longer head writer for the show...it can only get better.

  45. chareles john

    Ripping ass guitar work. Ironical, was watching the walking dead last night when they took a group of strays to hilltop. Thanks, jesus......sorry they killed you off. Anybody who watches Ted knows. They need to get rid of Scott gimple..asshole really ruined the show for a lot of people with his sorry ass writing on the show...hope you read this, gimple.

    mike romano

    did he kill off beth ?? if so then he did ruin twd

    Darren Smith

    @mike romano Scott Gimple was indeed writing for the show at that point. Definitely didn't ruin the show for me though.

  46. The Echo and Mary Chain

    Fav band of all time

  47. Nathalie Torres

    Will this fix me

  48. Nirolevy1

    When a song contains an electric guitar I automatically expect a solo after the 2nd refrain
    And it leaves me disapointed to find none, but that's just me...

  49. Bruno Witkower

    i Love This Song 🤩

  50. Carla Bento

    They Are so dirty... And mi mind Floattin' like poetry i sacrifice myself to 6u

    DK ALBRYTE

  51. John Kenny

    Well Jesus listens to it too recently!

  52. KC 71

    Kick on.

  53. Graham Dickson

    JAMC are my bible, love their industrial blues sound.

    DK ALBRYTE

    They've got a unique sound. The brothers, Jim- I think in particular, have had quite a reputation lol. In the beginning they'd play a short set with their backs turned to the crowd. Plus their notorious tempers.

    Graham Dickson

    @DK ALBRYTE there's pain in William's guitaring as is there in Jim's vocals, it's unpretentious music and a breathe of fresh air lyrically. I saw them a lot later ( munki album era) in Edinburgh, got the whole set with a few added in, was great.

    DK ALBRYTE

    @Graham Dickson I'd die to see them...I'm in the US and after Damage and Joy they were close to me, on your tour but never got to see them

  54. Javier Orterga

    I am here from Chumel (fuck you by the way) *chayotero.

    V Gee

    what do people post " i am here from " on other generation´s and culture´s videos

  55. Noe flores

    Smh, cant believe they ripped off the rhythm from heyyeahyeahyeah song from he-man..

  56. 1888gp

    william really hates when jim touches him lol...love these guys coolest band ever ..scotlands finest

    DK ALBRYTE

    Yeah..especially when they'd played with their backs to crowds

  57. Fre Gre

  80. Eduardo Piccoli Meotti

    Listening in April.

  81. Shashwat Srivastava

    80s the best decade in music and i'm not talking about the glam material but all the indie and alternative rock. Jmc, The Cure, The smiths, New Order, REM, The Replacements, U2 and many other great bands. What a decade!!!! All my friends are into edm and shit and i feel like an outcast. I just can't explain to them how much important guitar solos and song lyrics are. They will never understand but I am glad that I am not like them. I love 80s music and always will.

    John Cathcart

    don't worry as long as you understand

    ChrisSignvm

    How much important are they?

    Michael

    You've already got it figured out.

    Seba

    90s definitely

    Pedro Couto

    80s forever

  82. Carla Bento

    It was meaning Acid 4ain? But i am happy whsn it rains
    I sacrifice myself to you.. Powerful girl.. From the land.. If snaked ... North of Portugal says Hy to dyrty guys bánd dirty bass :)

  83. PHAEDRIDER

    hand in hand in a violent life, making love on the edge of a knife. ... pure genius lyrics

  84. Mr. Cifuentes

    APRIL 1.

    APRIL 23RD I TURN 23

  85. Sharky

    Its human *nature* to come *together*

    hermione granger

    Sharky Rick Grimes said that

  86. Paul Roberts

    This is where the term "shoegazers" came from.

  87. Veer Chasm

    This is one of those songs that I’ve marveled at for 30 plus years. Perfectly crafted

  88. weird_ rita

    this video has just helped me to find myself again. Great thanx to JAMC!

  89. TheMimifur

    When we were young...

  90. Sérgio Costa

    Best band ever. The coolest of the cool.

  91. Ross Turnbull

    Superb..timeless.

  92. Amilton Ademar Maffezzolli

    Io sono fam di Jesus and Mari Chan

  93. thedarkhorse1971

    Here we go again. 80s/90s indie classic gets used in a hit tv show/movie/video game and that's all we see in the comments section. Fucking hate it when that happens.

    micmac61

    some people weren't old enough to know them first time round,at least they're getting an introduction now,same for me with some 60's/70's songs.

  94. Maria Del Rocio Negrete Angeles

    Nostalgia pura!!
    Me acuerdo cuando me peinaba y vestía así, saludos compañeros del CCH Azcapotzalco!! Allá por el lejano 1986......
