Super Furry Animals - If You Don't Want Me To Destroy You Lyrics

If you don't want me to destroy you
Take a leaf out of my book
Turn it round and have a look
Because I don't want you to destroy me
I'll commit myself to be
In and out of every tree

You just hold me down so quietly
You just pull me back

When the insects fly all around you
Do you reach and aim a hit
Or do you lie around a bit?
And when the animals gather round you
Do you ask them for the time
Or do you run away and whine?

You just hold me down so quietly
You just pull me back...

You just hold me down so quietly
You just pull me down to earth
Let me grow into the depths of your infinity
I can sense your presence in the vicinity...

    subtle nods to the video for 'strawberry fields' throughout. quite right too. the sfa are up there with the royalty of british psych bands! i for one am rather glad they didn't reach the same commercial heights as the stereophonics or mxxxxx sxxxxx pxxxxxxxx coz it makes then feel more precious somehow....
