Feist: How Come You Never Go There: Stream + Lyrics


Here is the first real feel for what Feist will deliver on her upcoming release, Metals. Out October 4th, on Arts & Crafts, the pre-release frenzy has been going for weeks now with teaser (annoying) videos, but that has been eclipsed by audio of the first single slipping out late Thursday night.

[Flash 9 is required to listen to audio.]
"How Come You Never Go There"

Tracklist
1 The Bad In Each Other
2 Graveyard
3 Caught A Long Wind

8 Anti-Pioneer
9 Undiscovered First
10 Cicadas And Gulls
11 Comfort Me
12 Get It Wrong Get It Right


These are the lyrics. Perhaps someone with more time could finish them off for me.

How come you never go there?
How come I'm so alone there?
How come you never go there?
How come I'm so alone there?

I went up to your window
lightning banging on the cymbals
I looked into the light
came storming to your eyes

my horse had worked the fields too long
my bear had lost his innate calm
it's true enough x x
x x x x x x

our love is not the light it was
when i walk inside the dark come come
where we look for where it went
it's only echos in the melody x x x

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there

(guitar)

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there

waste time and blame a week without
waste energy i'm too x x x
we're living proof we gotta let go
and stop looking through the lay low

you carry on as if our time is through
you carry on as if i don't love you
and so we find the way x x x
to cover x x x without a doubt now

the rooms full our eyes are empty
like the letters never sent me
x x x x x
you're an instrumental too

BRIDGE

(horns)

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there

how come you never go there
how come i'm so alone there


... to be continued?
