Sidewalk Safari lyrics - Chairlift


All of the bones in your body
Are in way too few pieces for me
Time to do something about it
If you know what I mean

I'm on a sidewalk safari
If I see you on the street, you'd better run
Away from my all-terrain weapon
In your direction
In your direction...

I'm on a sidewalk safari
If I see you on the street you'd better run
You should have taken a taxi
In your direction

Cause I'm gonna hunt you down
(In your direction)
I'm gonna run you down
(In your direction)
I'm gonna run you down
(In your direction)
I'm gonna hunt you down

I'm bad with bows and arrows
I'm not so good at guns
Poison seems old fashioned
And hired help's no fun
But I do know how to drive a car
Faster than a man can run...

Cause I'm gonna hunt you down
I'm gonna run you down
(In your direction)
I'm gonna run you down
(In your direction)
I'm gonna hunt you down
(In your direction)

Wrong Opinion lyrics - Chairlift

Overhead and underfoot
If you cut it down then you will never know
I laid my guts out on the table
Laid my guts out and you said no
You got a wrong opinion
Wrong opinion

If you don't get it
You don't get to have it
If you don't get it it's fine by me
Because I see sun
I see sun

Over the counter underground
And through the world that you will never know
But to stay and contemplate could make you late
So you take a photo
You got a wrong opinion
Wrong opinion

If you don't get it
You don't get to have it
If you don't get it it's fine by me
If you don't get it
You don't get to have it
If you don't get it it's fine by me
Because I see sun
I see sun

You don't get it no
You don't get it

Yeah the leaves grow where light goes
I see the sun rising over the edge
Did you miss it or ignore it
I see beginning where you see the end
Yeah the leaves grow where light goes
I see the sun rising over the edge
Did you miss it or ignore it
I see beginning where you see the end

Because I see sun
I see sun
I see sun
I see sun
I see sun

I Belong in Your Arms lyrics - Chairlift

Crossing my heart
Open wide
You're my crystal and clover
All of me, honestly
Is dedicated to hold you
Swear to god
Double know
What would you do if I stole you tonight?
Why waste time?

Because the world goes on without us
It doesn't matter what we do
All silhouettes with no regrets
When I'm melting into you
I belong in your arms
I belong in your arms

Feelings are good
Nothing to say
Just want my head on your shoulder
Banana split
Honestly
You're my remote controller
Between you and me
Suddenly
Something something something is on my mind

Because the world goes on without us
It doesn't matter what we do
All silhouettes with no regrets
When I'm melting into you
I belong in your arms
I belong in your arms

Because the world goes on without us
It doesn't matter what we do
All silhouettes with no regrets
When I'm melting into you
I belong in your arms
I belong in your arms

Take It Out On Me lyrics - Chairlift

You're here
Early but here
On a morning so clear and blue is fate up for debate?
And does my love only count if it's proved?

Forget forgiveness
Forget all the rules
Just please don't do it here
Bring on the fire
Because business is cruel
And Sophie's got somewhere to be

I'm not afraid so take me outside
I know what you're here to do
Shotguns up familiar sleeves
Undercover but nobody's fooled
Got no time
No time for goodbyes
Oh god just let my love survive

Forget forgiveness
Forget all the rules
Just please don't do it here
Bring on the fire
Because business is cruel
And Sophie's got somewhere to be
Take it out on me
Take it out on me

Forget forgiveness
Forget all the rules
Just please don't do it here
Bring on the fire
Because business is cruel
Just please don't do it here
Take it out on me
Take it out on me
Bring on the fire
Because business is cruel
And Sophie's got somewhere to be
Take it out on me

Ghost Tonight lyrics - Chairlift

Tell me can you see
See the walls through me?
Because how could a love so crazy
Be so easy to ignore

Hollow heavy eyes
Follow in your light
I'm a ghost tonight

The starry night is clear
Can you feel me near?
Under the bed I disappear
Like a secret that you know
Some wounds never mend
Lilies bloom and bend
White as teeth I swim beneath the footsteps in the wall

Hollow heavy eyes
Follow in your light
I'm a ghost tonight

Because my heart is a stone
until you make it right
I could live forever
Forever forever forever

So tell me can you see
See the walls through me?

Hollow heavy eyes
Follow in your light
I'm a ghost tonight

Because my heart is a stone
Until you make it right
I could live forever
Forever forever forever

So tell me can you see
See the walls through me?
Because how could a love so crazy
Be so easy to ignore

Cool As A Fire lyrics - Chairlift

Wasted the morning again
The world at the window is dead
The look in your eye says you don't love me anymore
Cool as a fire
I'm alive I'm alive I know
But now that I found you I don't have a choice
With or without you I don't have a choice

When nobody's watching I'm coiled in question
Hiding the signs
Because weakness wins if weakness shows
Cool as a fire

I'm alive I'm alive I know
But now that I found you I don't have a choice
With or without you I don't have a choice
Now that I found you I don't have a choice
With or without you I don't have a choice

Gone with the weather
Nothing ever lasts forever
Gone with the weather
Nothing ever lasts forever
Gone with the weather
Nothing ever lasts forever
Gone with the weather
Nothing ever lasts forever

Amanaemonesia lyrics - Chairlift

You lost your focus but I got a plan for it
With a secret ingredient
And you are infinitely invited

Just leave alone the geminis
Two of them and four of eyes
And you are infinitely invited
(No one could not agree)
It's unanimously decided
(They've come for you and me)
That we are dangerously surrounded
(Their boats are full of flames)
Aaaaaahhhhh
(They paint the grasses green)
Aaaaaahhhhhh
(Repeating history)
Aaaaaahhhhh
(They don't say what they mean)

Is it amnesia
Amanaemonesia
Mistaken for magic
(Mistaken for magic)
Silver hours
Silver hours
Becoming a habit
(Chasing the rabbit)
Is it amnesia
Amanaemonesia
Mistaken for magic
(Mistaken for magic) [x2]

Spacing out in a nook and cranny
It's officially uncanny
It's a fish in a sea of granite
Just leave alone the geminis
Two of them and four of I’s
(No one could not agree)
It's unanimously decided
(They've come for you and me)
That we are dangerously surrounded
(Their boats are full of flames)
Aaaaahhhhhh
(They paint their grasses green)
Aaaaaaahhhh
(Repeating history)
Aaaaaahhhh
(They don't say what they mean)

Is it amnesia
Amanaemonesia
Mistaken for magic
(Mistaken for magic)
Silver hours
Silver hours
Becoming a habit
(Chasing the rabbit)
Is it amnesia
Amanaemonesia
Mistaken for magic
(Mistaken for magic) [x4]

There's a system of symbols that no one will vouch for
Everyone uses and no one believes
There's a dog in the yard with a manner that's ruff
Yet there's something about you that he understands
The girl at the window covered in ashes
Smiles grotesquely in the light of the day
Singing in German the cold summer warning
But I can't remember what I meant to say

Is it amanaemonesia
(Mistaken for magic)
Amanaemonesia
(Chasing the rabbit)
Amanaemonesia
(Mistaken for magic) [x6]

Met Before lyrics - Chairlift


Did I just catch your eyes like familiar fish in the water
It could be anywhere that we’ve passed each other by
Were you at that one party? That one up on the ninth floor
Were you the quiet one who stopped to hold the door?

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile

Was that you on the screen or just in line for the movie?
Because my heart is beating fast and I wish that I knew why

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile.

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and ba-da-da-ba-ba...

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile
Oh you look at me and smile
Oh you look at me and smile

Frigid Spring lyrics - Chairlift

High in the ranks of the bleeding hearts
With one to call my own
On the docks of the fishing boats
Of semi precious stone
Recent light
Fresh with vacant envy
Failing all alone
Frigid spring
Of the wishy washy wishing well of home

Missing the mark
At your seat in the dark
At a barter banquet, amen
Riding the ride and unleashing the tide
Of a maiden's mood swing, amen
Won't go as planned without asking the hand
Of the mastermind, amen
Heavenly harness of obstinate power
He's down on her knees

Far in the land of the scribble scrabble
Lightning field of loam
Where the plow pushed sod with devilled hooves of clones
Shanty towns
Harvest hollyhocks
All frothing full of foam
Past the claws of the city light is the doorstep you call home

Missing the mark
At your seat in the dark
At a barter banquet, amen
Riding the ride and unleashing the tide
Of a maiden's mood swing, amen
Won't go as planned without asking the hand
Of the mastermind, amen
Heavenly harness of obstinate power
He's down on her knees

Won't go as planned without asking the hand
Of the mastermind, amen
Heavenly harness of obstinate power
He's down on her knees

Call home
She needs you
He's down on her knees
Call home
She needs you
He's down on her knees
She needs you

Turning lyrics - Chairlift

In the dark we unroll an inner vision
I'm turning into someone else
The cage starts fitting
There's something in the water
I'm turning into someone else
I never thought I could reach this far
I never thought I could reach this...

Guilty As Charged lyrics - Chairlift



Angel in the court room
Eagle on the ceiling
My baby's sitting front row
Witnessing my hearing

I tried to burn the record book collection
I tampered with the local lie detection
I'm guilty as charged
I'm guilty as charged
You know I'm guilty as charged
Go on and punish me

But if I gave you what you're askin' for
You wouldn't want it anymore
If I gave you what you're askin' for
You wouldn't want it anymore
So I won't
No, no, no, no, no I won't
So I won't
No, no, no, no, no I won't

Footprints on the carpet
Cameras on the ceiling
My baby's swearing on the Bible
The stolen golden earrings

The creaky floors set off the fire alarm
And I never wanted to do any harm
But I'm guilty as charged
I'm guilty as charged
You know I'm guilty as charged
Go on and punish me

But if I gave you what you're askin' for
You wouldn't want it anymore
If I gave you what you're askin' for
You wouldn't want it anymore
So I won't
No, no, no, no, no I won't
So I won't
No, no, no, no, no I won't

Garbage lyrics - Chairlift

All the garbage that you have thrown away
Is waiting somewhere a million miles away
Your condoms and your VCR
Your ziploc bags and father's car
Dark and silent it waits for you ahead

So much garbage will never ever decay
And all your garbage will outlive you one day
You should sign a fancy signature to your messy messy portraiture
Because dark and silent it waits for you ahead

Making so much garbage each and every day
We make this shit for you to throw away
In plastic rooms in factories for you to dispose of as you please
Because dark and silent it waits for you ahead

With stomachs full of oil and vinegar
Stomachs full of oil and vinegar
With stomachs full of oil and vinegar hey hey
With stomachs full of oil and vinegar
Stomachs full of oil and vinegar
With stomachs full of oil and vinegar hey hey

La la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la

Planet Health lyrics - Chairlift



When I arrived on planet health
In the state of being well
So I altered my self conscious messes
And body images

I visited the food pyramid
In the desert of vitamins
I found a desired heart rate
And a mouth to resuscitate

I am feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight

I was trained in diversity
In the garden of puberty
Where they Heimlich maneuvered me
And they showed me how to make a baby

I found my friends in the forest of loves
Where we just said no to drugs
Our intercourse was well protected
We made love with each others' eyes

We're feeling great tonight
We're feeling great tonight
We're feeling great tonight
We're feeling great tonight

Then I found out where you're sent
When you're sick and sad and old
They kick you off of planet health
Into a universe of cold

Stop drop and roll
Just stop drop and roll
Stop drop and roll
Gotta stop and put out the fire

Stop drop and roll
Just stop drop and roll
Stop drop and roll
Gotta stop and put out the fire

Feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight
I am feeling great tonight

Earwig Town lyrics - Chairlift

A uniform telephone call
An unknown caller, an unknown face
Oooh, you've been let down
Oooh, in earwig town

They burrow in through your left ear
Lay their eggs and crawl out the right

Oooh, they'll chase you down
Oooh, in earwig town

Bruises lyrics - Chairlift

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you
But every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue
For you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue

For you ooo ...
For you ooo ...
So black and blue ooo ...
For you ooo

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruising knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruising knees,
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue
(for you)

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

For you ooo ...
For you ooo ....
So black and blue ooo ...
For you ooo ...

Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do

Somewhere Around Here lyrics - Chairlift

Near the east Waverly Hills, your hair pinned back
In previous lives, we were frozen sticks
But these aren't so rigid
I throw off my coat to feel this January air

They wrote a book for the two of us
To read our books on
The darkest light before a darker night
We slip underwater
The bridge disappears, the deer hunt is in the frigid air

Somewhere around here there are witches
Somewhere around here there are witches
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here, somewhere around here
Somewhere around here

Evident Utensil lyrics - Chairlift


The most evident utensil
Is none other than a pencil
Not a multicolored stencil
Nor a camra and crew

How hard must I try
(how hard must I try)
how hard must i try, for you-oo-oo?

You see me rolling in the dirt
(you see me rolling in the dirt)
You see me crawling up the walls by you-oo-oo-ooo

the most evident utensil
Is none other than a pencil
Writer tell me what you want from me
Befor my paper is through

How hard must I try
(how hard must I try)
How hard must I try for you-oo-oo?

You see me rolling in the dirt
(you see me rolling in the dirt)
You see me crawling up the walls by you-oo-oo-ooo

How hard must I try
(how hard must I try)
How hard must I try for you-oo-oo?

You see me rolling in the dirt
(you see me rolling in the dirt)
You see me crawling up the walls by you-oo-oo-ooo

(how hard must I try for you, try for you, must I try for you)

for you-ooo, for you-ooo...

Territory lyrics - Chairlift


You make yourself at home
In my zone
Leave my shit alone
Home alone
I got my kit
With bricks and clay
I built a fence
Keep you away

My territory
My territory
My territory
My territory

Clean up when you're done
Keep the mice out
Lock up when you run
Keep the night out
I pay my rent
To my country
But in my land
The lord is me

My territory
My territory

Make Your Mind Up lyrics - Chairlift

Looks like you've got a problem
You can't make up your mind
If you want the one who loves you
Or if you want to leave him behind

Well, darling, I've got a present
I made it just for you
In this velvet package
Is ten free hours of time

You can make your mind up
You can make your mind up
You can make your mind up
You can make your mind up, honey

Cut it up into powder
Take it like a line
The world will stop and wait for you
For ten free hours of time

You can walk right up to strangers
Frozen in their tracks
Look at their drinks as they're pouring
Look at the skin of their mouths

And you can make your mind up
You can make your mind up
You can make your mind up
You can make your mind up, honey

You can make your mind up
Only you can make your mind up
Only you

Don't Give A Damn lyrics - Chairlift

My dear stop complaining
my patience is waning
I don't give a damn anymore

for 6 years I waited
angry and frustrated
I don't give a damn anymore

I've been locked up, been locked down
I've been held up in a showdown
I waited for you all the while

my gal I've been drifting
from Raleigh to Reno
my blood summons me to the road

my look's never good
but I did what I could
I don't give a damn anymore

I've been held up in bus stops
I've been lonesome in land lock
and I thought of you all the while

your rope's getting tighter
my standards are higher
I don't give a damn anymore

oh stiff boots and rawhide
I'm done with my old life
I don't give a damn anymore

I've been locked up been locked down
I've been held up in a showdown
I waited for you all the while

I've been stood up been broke down
I've been better back in this town
I'll saddle up soon and be gone

I'll saddle up soon and be gone

Ceiling Wax lyrics - Chairlift



When I'll walk out of this road
You'll never see me again
For I will never return
From that scary place
My time is come
My day is done
My time is come
My day is done

Le Flying Saucer Hat lyrics - Chairlift

[2009 Reissue Bonus Track]



Très très loin de notre planète
Floating dans l'espace
Y a un chapeau noir et blanc
Glowing in the dark
C'est l'accessoire essentiel
Parmi tous les stars
On le voit sur Jupiter
Et de temps en temps sur Mars

Mon Flying Saucer Hat
Hat Hat Hat Hat Hat
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh
Flying Saucer Hat
Hat Hat Hat Hat Hat
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh

Il visitait la Terre une fois
Pour voir le Great Gatsby
Et en soirée il le portait
Oh quel grand succès
Mais après il le cachait
Au fond dans sa closet
Même si c'était invisible
Il gardait le secret

De Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh oh oh
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh oh oh
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh

Qu'est-ce que vous allez porter
Au château de Pluto
A la bal pour célébrer
L'eclipse universelle
Il faut se habiller très bien
Tout le monde sera là
Je sais qui je vais amener
Une bonne amie à moi

Mon Flying Saucer Hat
Hat Hat Hat Hat Hat
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh
Flying Saucer Hat
Hat Hat Hat Hat Hat
Flying Saucer Hat
Oh oh oh

Doves Of Summer lyrics - Chairlift


In a sweet and slow vibration
It was all I had to hear
He came shivering the plaster
In a long coversation
In a long, long conversation

Come and take your last rebuttal
From the battle that you'll lose
Pit your fear against your senses
In a long conversation
In a long, long conversation

Cus I won't go far from here
To watch you as you float away
I can hear the doves of summer
They are migrating today

Cus I won't go far from here
To watch you as you float away
I can hear the doves of summer
They are migrating today

I'll take a cold, magnetic hammer
We'll smash them all up into shards
The static flying doves of summer
Will lay there eggs in our backyards

Cus I won't go
Far from here
The flying doves
How can you hear?
