Portishead - Portishead Lyrics






Cowboys

Did you sweep us far from your feet
Reset in stone this stark belief
Salted eyes and a sordid dye
Too many years

But don't despair this day, will be their damnedest day
Ooh, if you take these things from me

Did you feed us tales of deceit
Conceal the tongues who need to speak
Subtle lies and a soiled coin
The truth is sold, the deal is done

But don't despair this day, will be their damnedest day
Ooh, if you take these things from me

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Undefied, no signs of regret
Your swollen pride assumes respect
Talons fly as a last disguise
But no return, the time has come

So don't despair this day, will be their damnedest day
Ooh, if you take these things from me
Ooh, if you take these things from me

All Mine

All the stars may shine bright
All the clouds may be white
But when you smile
Ohh how I feel so good
That I can hardly wait

To hold you
Enfold you
Never enough
Render your heart to me

All mine.......
You have to be

From that cloud, number nine
Danger starts the sharp incline
And such sad regrets
Ohh as those starry skies
As they swiftly fall

Make no mistake
You shan't escape
Tethered and tied
There's nowhere to hide from me

All mine....
You have to be

Don't resist
We shall exist
Until the day I die
Until the day I die

All mine.......
You have to be

Undenied

Your softly spoken words
Release my whole desire
Undenied
Totally

And so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

Beneath your tender touch
My senses can't divide
Ohh so strong
My desire

For so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

Now that I've found you
And seen behind those eyes
How can I
Carry on

For so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

Belong
Belong
Belong

Half Day Closing

In the days, the golden days
When everybody knew what they wanted
It ain't here today

Through the times of lasting love
When parents talked of things tried and tested
It don't feel the same

Dreams and belief have gone
Time, life itself goes on

Far beyond the shrinking skies
Where money talks and leaves us hypnotised
It don't pave the way

Underneath the fading sun
The silent sum of a businessman
Has left us choking

Dreams and belief have gone
Time, life itself goes on

In the days, the golden days
When everybody know what they wanted
It ain't here today

Dreams and belief have gone
Time, life itself goes on

Over

I can't hold this day
Anymore
Understand me
Anymore

To tread this fantasy, openly
What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over

I can't mould this stage
Anymore
Recognise me
Anymore

To tread this fantasy, openly
What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over
is taking me over

To tread this fantasy, openly
What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over
is taking me over
is taking me over

Humming

Closer
No hesitation
Give me
All that you have

And it's been so long, that I can't explain
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong

Naked
My thoughts are creeping
To late
The show has begun

And it's been so long, that I can't confess
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong

Is it all as it seems
So unresolved, so unredeemed
If I remain, how will I know

And it's been so long, that I can't be sure
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong

Mourning Air

Did I see a moment with you
In a half lit world
I'm frightened to believe
But I must try
If I stumble if I fall
I'm reaching out in this mourning air, ohh

Have I got the strength to ask
Beyond the window
I feel this fear alone
Until we have
Total honesty
If I tremble or fall
I'm reaching out in this mourning air, ohh

Should I feel a moment with you
To softly whisper
I crave nothing else so much
Longing to reveal
Total honesty
I can feel your touch
I'm reaching out in this mourning air, ohh

I'm reaching out in this mourning air, ohh.

Seven Months

How can I forget you
Disregard how I feel
Silently listen
To the words I can't see

For as long as I have tried
And as low as I can be
I will never resign myself
From the trial I seek

Why should I forgive you
After all that I've seen
Quietly whisper
When my heart wants to scream

For as long as I have tried
And as low as I can be
I will never resign myself
From the trial I seek

There's no time to rest
Or to reconsider
For this cruel unsaid, won't concede

For as long as I have tried
And as low as I can be
I will never resign myself
From the trial I seek

Only You

Nous souffrons tout les jours
A quoi ca sert
Ces crimes d'illusions
Nous trompent tous
Maintenant je suis las
C'est tout ce que je ressens

It's only you
Who can tell me apart
And it's only you
Who can turn my wooden heart

L'ampleur de notre guerre
Ce n'est qu'un rêve
On a tout ecrasé
Ca je peux le voir egoistement
Nous avons echoué
C'est tout ce que je ressens

It's only you
Who can tell me apart
And it's only you
Who can turn my wooden heart

On a choisi de prendre tout ce qu'on pouvait
Ce teint d'automne a une fin amer
Des années de frustration s'allongent côte à côte

It's only you
Who can tell me apart
And it's only you
Who can turn my wooden heart

It's only you
Who can tell me apart
And it's only you
Who can turn my wooden heart
