I'll be the wind in your leaves
The warmth of the sun
I'm always drawing your colours
I'm always tracing your footsteps

It's a hard world it's a cold world
I could never say what I mean
I went looking in all the wrong places
There's nothing wrong with you

Broken telephone
The lines are down
The wires no longer reaching
Connection's gone

Higher and higher
I am taken by what you've given to me
Higher and higher
I am taken by what you've given to me
What you've given to me

I'll be the wind in your leaves (repeat first verse)...

Broken telephone the lines are down
I throw myself at nothing
I throw myself at nothing
Higher and higher I am taken by
What you've given to me...

If you look up "sucko-barfo" in the dictionary, there you will find this song.

It does go just a little too far on this track. Pretty much impossible to understand the lyrics except for a few snippets here and there.

same here.
Not their best tune... I've heard better from other albums.
nails on the chalkboard - mute time (hope it doesn't last too long)
yum! more tanyas :hungry:

what an amazin' trio! :crowded: so cool!
This is the first song by them that I don't really care for.
Does anyone else hear Gary Jules in the guitar work?
Be Good Tanyas for Christmas Angels! :angel: :angel: :angel: Oh, and World President(s)
Nothing quite like a broken telephone to concentrate fully on the music at hand (: ear :stupid: ear :) BGT's for World President!
I can't understand most of the lyrics to this song. If the lyrics are going to be unintelligable, why not do the song as an instrumental?

:) I might occasionally miss them here at RP Kerly which means I'm listening to them on my Ipod probably, walkin' gayly down the street in Chinatown :music:
Thanks to the uploader! :wink:

Please put me out of this misery :stop:
This is actually painful.

Wonderful description! :high-five: The imagery is right there in the music; the banjo :music: harmonies so sweet, bubblin' ( oozin' :smile: ) their way up from the Deep South to the frozen Northern Wastes. :whisper: ( And all the way to Tropical Australia too! )
