Mystery Jets - Bombay Blue Lyrics




A baby, young and sweet
A Maharashtra night, a city street
And I feel low
Hear her crying in her sleep
A blanket of newspaper sheets
By my window
There's no worse sound that I could hear
Or hope of life that I fear she'll never know
Oh those Bombay Blues

And the harder you push her away
The sooner your heart turns a darker shade of grey
But the more you allow her in
The longer she'll live beneath the surface of your skin

Oh and now that I can see
How love becomes the enemy
They say there's nothing you can do
But that's what they want you to believe

Full moon party on the beach
Burning holy effigies on Summer sands
Temporarily mend the holes
In your chimerical soul
In a mystic land

But all the beautiful things that you love
Will one day turn into the things that you despise
'Cuz the darkness lives within
And the more that you hide it
The darker it stains your skin

Oh and now that I can see
How love becomes a memory
And you say there's nothing I can do
If that's what you wanna believe

Oh and now that I can see
How love becomes the enemy
You say there's nothing I can do
If that's what you wanna believe
There's clearly nothing I can say
That will make her go away
Don't say there's nothing I can do
If that's what you wanna believe

  19. Jason Mahon

  24. Aimar Bergkamp

    4:24 🎶

  25. Jaz

    It's funny how a brain works. It was not my favourite song from the album. After watching the video for the first time, it changed the way that I've been listening to this song. I'm now obssesed with the song. Great artwork!

    Fernando Huerta

    Same thing happened to me!

  26. Ebi Febriyanto

  29. Sunana Batra

    This verse is just everything: The more you allow her in
    The longer she'll live beneath the surface of your skin...

  30. Sunana Batra

    A very wise man mentioned this as a great song in the comments of a Michael Kiwanuka song, Cold Little Heart. I figured if he liked that song he must have pretty good taste. I wasn't wrong. This song is incredible.

  31. E.Carolina Díaz

    Me encanta :)

  32. Daniel Huamán Babilón

    Qué bravo!

  35. Adam Fitzgerald

    top-notch video, great song

  36. El Monete Ártico

    Can somebody tell me where this village is?

    John Lower

    It's the old walled city of Jodhpur in India, where many of the buildings are painted in the same shade of blue. Nearby Jaipur is known as the Pink City, as that is the colour chosen there to decorate the buildings.

  37. Álvaro López

    simply amazing

  38. Carlos V

    This video is amazing

  39. Elizabeth Gorringe

    Un comentario en español creí era el unico aqui!

    Jacl Jacl

    Yo igual ♥️

  54. Jason Sparks

    does the colour blue have a significant in india culture, just wondered

    Rhea Mahule

    well, this video has been shot in a city called Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India. In ancient times when this was a kingdom all the houses were painted blue, so you could call it the blue city. A similar city near Jodhpur is Jaipur, it is called the pink city, again because of the pink paint and bricks used there.

  55. Satrio Hutomo Kurniawan

    indonesia please !

  56. Carlos Lima

    reminds me a lot of Radiohead.

    Santiago Ebratt

    The vocals remind me a lot of Arcade Fire

  57. Lilisau

    with the song i cry, and when i see the video i cry more and more <3

  58. drizzit71

    lovely :))

  59. Jin Watanabe

    This video should have more views than a Justin Bieber or a One direction's music video. This is real music. This is art.

    deirdre mac mahon

    yes! why aren't these guys on top of the world?
    saw them Sunday and definitely the best concert I've seen all year ( Radiohead, Iggy Pop, Last Shadow Puppets etc)

    Doogie Carpit Burger

    They are great artists... Special group of musicians.

  60. Safa Shabbir

    Kapil 💋💋💋

  61. william seymour-jones

    i feel like the video could have done with more panoramic shots of bombay

    Rhea Mahule

    In a way they've tried to mix two concepts here, Bombay and blue. this has been shot in Jodhpur, the blue city of India which is completely different from Bombay but at the same time they have taken the theme of feeling 'blue' from the city of Bombay. I hope this makes sense cause i really don't know if it does :P

    william seymour-jones

    no it makes sense. thank you!

    somersetfan1

    I always think of Bombay Sapphire... which has a blue bottle

  62. George Judd

    great song, great video!

  63. Ada E S

    Beautiful

  64. Laurerrr87

    The last 2 minutes of this song (especially 3:30 onwards!) are just absolute bliss!! Unbelievably good <3
