Rhys, Gruff - Sensations In The Dark Lyrics

Once upon a time I took to melody and drank it every night
A dedicated pacifist, no fistfights, no antagonistic knocking out lights

Sensations in the dark...

A century of shadows lifted upwards
And discarded to thin air
Now I could speak my mind to others' mothers
Without blushing up to my curly hair

Sensations in the dark...

And with a bright air of madness and flair
You introduced me to great new ideas
So you did, so you did, that's right
Well little, little by little we were pulled apart
By forced come to play
Well colour, colour, colour coded I was designated
Emigrated out of your way
Though we were pulled apart
The memories outlast
Adventures in the past

Sensations in the dark...

    okay so I'm pretty fucking high and i just watched that for the first time in my life and I'd just like to say that it was pretty damn awesome. You gots yourself a new follower man!...I can't move...

  13. tamcon72

    No, sir. But now to you: Can you seriously be calling out Gruff Rhys at a post under one of his videos at YouTube?

    Also, I'm American and I refuse to believe there is an actual person called Llewellyn Jones and that she lives across the street from Gruff Rhys's mom. I mean, what are the odds?! :)

    Geraint Lewis

    tamcon72 it would never happen as Llewellyn is a man's name.

  14. NuNorthernSoul
