Golden waves in all directions, I could lose my soul right here
Colour lights on the runway makes a stranger feel unchained

I'm running after time & I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come, happiness will be mine
I'm lost in my words, I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things

I feel loose, I feel haggard, don't know what I'm looking for
Something true, something lovely that will make me feel alive

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come, happiness will be mine
I'm lost in my words, I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things

Like a vagabond in the distance looking for a song to sing
A song that will last all night and for the rest of our lives
I'm lost in my words, I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come, happiness will be mine
I'm lost in my words, I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come, happiness will be mine

I try to escape such shenanigans as beck by retreating to the world mix... does his mediocrity have no bounds? Air, how could you?!
I generally like Air and Beck, but this particular song holds no appeal to me. I think it's the incessant "chirping synth" (which seems to creep into a lot of the Air music I've heard here on RP) that is the final straw for me on this one.
Oh, Come now. Air is a great band and its nice to hear Beck in this nice atmosphere.

Couldn't agree more... I'm a huge fan of both Beck and Air and nearly creamed my pants in anticipation of 10,000 Hz when I heard a rumor before it was released that Beck would contribute. I loved Moon Safari and The Virgin Suicides Soundtrack, but the last two albums have been dreadfull, I guess the success and praise that Air received early on got to their head and gave them poetic license to be crappy and even more experimental then they already are.
A dreary dud. A shock--considering the atmosphere and imagination both artists usually display. :??:
\"Oh shit\" is right. :roll:
Cool~ (pimp)
yeah, great stuff, also check out the fantastic DVD Eating, Sleeping, Waiting and Playing, by Mike Mills, featuring their clips, a doco, and art etc. Sean Lennon supports them on a gig in NYC I think, which is a nice partnership.

I love Air, definitely :notworthy:

I don't think RP is the right place for this kind of humour. Each one has its own opinion
a great track, seen Air live twice, very very good..

Beck could take a rubber band, tin foil, and a spoon a make a kick ass song out of it
Not a big Beck fan, but that was good! (pimp)
(pimp) cool
