They wanted me here just to show you my face
But when it comes to the crunch, I just hide in disgrace
You were calling me mad but I know you're the same
'Cause you gotta be seen to be playing the game
Yes, you gotta be seen to be playing the game
Yes, we gotta be seen to be playing the game

It ain't gonna hurt now if you open up your eyes
You're making it worse now every time you criticize
I'm under your curse now, but I call it compromise
I thought that you were wise, but you were otherwise

A specimen like you I would love to obtain
I asked a tedious guy if he'd tell me your name
I'd love to impress you with a back somersault
I wanna take up your love, but it's locked in a vault
I wanna take up your love, but it's locked in a vault

It ain't gonna hurt now if you open up your eyes
You're making it worse now every time you criticize
I'm under your curse now, but I call it compromise
I thought that you were wise, but you were otherwise

When I open my mouth, I'm so brutally honest
And I can't expect that kind of love from you
When you open your mouth, your teeth are beautifully polished
And I can't extract the pain you're going through
No, I can't explain the pain you're going through

It ain't gonna hurt now if you open up your eyes
You're making it worse now every time you womanize
I'm under your curse now, but I call it compromise
I'm under your curse, oh, oh

It ain't gonna hurt now if you open up your eyes
You're making it worse now every time you criticize
I'm under your curse now, but I call it compromise
I thought that you were wise, but you were otherwise

In fact the production sounds flat and won't make history. It will sound so cheesy in 20 years from now.

- that's a great line!

 
Heh, I hate it. Rhyming wise with otherwise is just so... lame.
But I love everything else about the song. Morcheeba is fantastic even when the lyrics are a little bit derpy!
Like bad kareoke
Why don't I like her?
Because I can't sing and her voice sounds like mine.

I'm sort of with you, though I either really like, or am bored crapless, by Morcheeba's music. Much of it is boring lounge music about boring things, yet there are some absolutely stonking tracks, such as the opening track on Dive Deep or the title to Blood Like Lemonade, which go into my all-time top 50. I think it's because so many of their albums have guest artists which add spikiness and originality to the usual bland output. This may not be a top 50 number but it is catchy and engaging.

 
Dunno... there's a find line between blandness and simplicity, the latter of which can be refreshing and respectable if done tastefully. As with all things, it all comes down to personal opinion. But mine is that Morcheeba nails that pop-lounge sound in a pure and simple way, and I can't get enough {#Music}
This is pleasing.

Yes, clearly Arabic violins - thought so too!

Listen up Terry Jones, white trash ass - uneducated-bigot, obscene IDIOT!

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" somehow comes to mind...

More of all of it...especially Morphine!

Expected to see this was Sarah Blasko (in lighter form) - but no... interesting.

Morcheeba is melody.

Saw them (well what's left of them) the other night on Anthony Bourdain. He's apparently a friend of the band...

Sure sounds like a guitar riff from Supper's Ready.  To me.

Taken from their best album. :good-vibes: :pray:

Her voice is fine, its the words and refrain I dont like, or "despise" if you will.

well, i'm in california. we listen to "thick as a brick" and "supper's ready." :war: and the really HARDCORE californians listen to "from the cradle to the grave" and "a plague of lighthouse keepers." (very long, intense stuff from the 70's by the subhumans and van der graaf generator) hey bill, how about some subhumans? how about some van der graaf generator or some peter hammill?

very cool voice and the song is great! :clap:
Fortunately I found Morcheeba right when they released their Who Can You Trust? title back in 96'. Which I believe is by far their best work to date. Anywho, I have been hooked ever since. I can't imagine my life without a little Skye.
I do like this song, yes. It reminds me of some other song though... maybe it\'s just a popular sound. Nonetheless, I find myself addicted. ( ;
Excellent. very cool, very chill.
SHE HAS A GREAT SOUND, EASY TO LISTEN TO :)
How about a little Lesscheeba?
Really like everything I\'ve heard from Morcheeba. Recalls Supreme Beings of Leisure. Thanks RP, for the turn-on.

:lol: :lol: I guess you better not listen to it during any love making sessions then drover. It's only about a 4 minute song. :) Just kiddin, I totally hear ya. I just wish they would do something similar to Who Can You Trust or Big Calm again. Charango is allot closer than Fragments was. Much more adventerous. It just seems like Skye has kind of taken over the creative element which I think was best left to the Godfrey brothers.
wow, new to me, on my list :notworthy:
