Inside a heart of summer soul
Don't let them take it away

Cause inside's something solid gold
So don't let them throw it away

Words, they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me
I said words, they mean nothing
So you can't stop me

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't hurt me
(On summer days like these)
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

Follow your own path from here
So don't listen to what they say
(They don't know nothing)

Cause inside, you've a heart of gold
So don't let them take this away

Words, they mean nothing,
So you can't hurt me
(On summer days like these)
I said words, they mean nothing,
So you can't stop me
(On summer days like these)

I said your eyes, they say nothing,
So you can't fault me
I said words, they mean nothing,
So you can't hurt me

Inside a heart of pure soul
A sun rising and falling away, like your soul

Cause here comes something wonderful
So don't let them throw it away

Words, they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me
(On summer days like these)
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me
(On summer days like these)

I said your eyes, they say nothing,
So you can't stop me
(On summer days like these)
I said words, they mean nothing,
So you can't hurt me

I loves the Doves
The Doves
I really do have to mute this one.  It sounds good for a minute, but it is way too repetitive. It will stick and play an endless loop in your head if you're not careful.

I love this album too, but I'd say you're taking it a bit far. But to each his own. This track and Caught by the River are 9s in my book. The rest of the album is full of solid 6s, 7s and 8s.

Kinda a letdown after the Moody Blues. But I still like the Doves.
Compelling, catchy, simple albeit richly layered.

This sounds good...until the vocals begin. Offkey lead vocal + offkey harmonies = rating of a 2. At best.
This stinks.

Man, I really need to upload some Renaldo and the Loaf, "Songs for Swinging Larvae" As my dad might have said when I was little, "You keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about."

The Ride comparisons continue :-) Like 'em both.

We all need a little repetition every once in a while so the truly great stuff sounds even better. We all need a little repetition every once in a while so the truly great stuff sounds even better.

Time to get a new dentist! :stop: This is one of my favorite travel songs...recline the airplane seat and fade out. Great tune from a great album.
see Ride...

True, true. Really like The Doves, though. Both of their cd's (not counting the b-sides CD which is decent) are very good IMHO.
pleasant pop puff - nothing impressive or offensive
Repetitive and boring, no thanks
I love briandel and want to marry him/her..I really do not care... Anyone else who doesn't do the lyric to55ing crap is fine by me...... Grow up the rest of you.....just get the feeling for the song.....and stop thinking Dylan is God!!!!

No fair. I still want to be the supreme idiot! True, it seems like every one of my comments that I look back on appear to have come from a moronic 13-year-old (does that happen with anyone else? Was I drunk?), but is that reason to be so harsh? I just wanted to express my appreciation for a good song. I love this station and I love being able to make comments, but so often it seems like I'm listening with a lot of pretentious, self-indulgent pricks who think that they have to show off their "intelligence" by being critical of everything. Are they unhappy? Guess I shouldn't take to much stock from someone who can't spell. words. . . they mean nothing. . .
Cool - I like The Doves. Tchau! C rumb C at This reply (or lack thereof) has been brought to you as a courtesy of C rumb C at. © Copyright 2003 by C rumb C at, all rights reserved.
Sounds a lot like a Ride (master shoegazers) song... ;)
i think the riff sounds a lot like the one from The Lightning Seeds\' \"All I Want\", amongst other things. Good track though.
Doesn't this sound a bit like that song by the Lightening seeds ? Pure and simple I think it was called.
At first pass, it looks like opinion is equally divided on this song, until you look for multiple posts by the same person. I like it, for what its worth. ;)
Not bad but theres better stuff on the album than this.

These guys ROCK!!! I just don\'t understand how people listen to this and don\'t like it. Simply incredible. Last Broadcast is a great Album, better than lost souls I think... KEEP PLAYING DOVES!!!

I liked this. It reminds me of the late Velvet Crush; I miss them. db

Yeah, "Lost Souls" was far better..in my none too humble opinion
LOVE this song!! The Doves are great. I was first introduced to them last year by Radio Paradise. Please play more Doves!
Great song. Cool band. This is why I like this station, you guys play stuff that usually doesn\'t get the airtime on FM radio.

Right on. :clap: Lovin "The Last Broadcast". :cool:

thanks, rp, for introducing me to the doves about a year ago. guess i\'m a sap for this kind of orchestral uk stuff...even if the chord structure is simple. here in the middle of nowhere, it\'s great music to the ear!
Interesting range of commentary on this one. Personally, I think it\'s very good. I\'d never heard of Doves prior to this, but I find I enjoy their music quite a bit.

I've finally get the album. It's not as good as I expected.
Please play \"Pounding\" - it\'s the best track on this great album.
I was going to say I thought this was Ride but I see the shoegazers have already been here. :)
DOO-doo-doo-doo, DOO-doo-doo-doo ... (another name for \"crap\") \'nuff said. :frustrated:
Damn good song and it\'s probably the worst one on the whole album. :clap:
THis still holds an \"8\" after a number of encounters.
Storming track! :D

Neither do Counting Crows. Now the Eagles, that's another matter...

is it over yet??! :cry:
I first heard this band here on RP and I immediately went out and purchased everything I could get my hands on by the Doves. I love the words to this track! :D
A friend of mine in London turned me onto the Doves about 9 months ago... glad to find somewhere that gives them some play.

Agreed...
This song now officially annoys me. And it has grown more and more that way each time I hear it.
I like it, but am v. scared by the fellow whispering \'what is he doing\' half way thru. I listen at work with headphones, usually v. loud. \'What is he doing\' makes me look round expecting to see the boss peering over my shoulder!
I like this song more and more each time they play it.
Ooo! CURVE! Yes, please play some Curve!!!
reminds me of Stone Roses. Mmmmmm... Stone Roses....
OK, I hereby retract my prior statement that the end of this song gets annoying. I now enjoy it all the way through. It makes me feel as though I'm inside a kaleidoscope. :eek: ...And that's a good thing, I think.
This song has a problem: Great when first time heard, excellent at second time, likeable at third and so on. I think it\'s not a classic that you can hear forever, because it gets on your nerves soon.

Some Curve and Slowdive would be great to throw in the mix, too!

Stone Roses would be great!
Tambien sois pesaos con Doves. Por lo menos esta cancion esta bien.
Ack! It\'s like they heard \"The Twilight Zone\" riff and decided to hang another tune on top. STOP, PLEASE!!
Originally Posted by roguewarer: Nah. Too droning for me. Nice to hear it but couldn't wait for it end. Next, please! Actually, I've heard other Doves stuff that I liked. But this one sorta grates on me.
Uh... Yep...
It\'s got a bit of \'Heroes\' in it, I think. Only a producer like Brian Eno and a singer like David Bowie to make it come alive, are missing.

From one shoegazer to another - please do, Kurt!

Simplistic cord progressions, but it works really well! I like this quite a bit!
this stuff sounds a lot lighter than their last album, but I still love it.
THis is great!
Great band! British pop rules :D
doves...true rock stars!!!!! love them. more please. :D alfie
moi aussi!! (me too!!) :)
I liked it!
