Lyrics

jackie`s gone to airport (aeroport?)
no sight of heart in her heart
jackie`s gone wind carries her away
jackie`s gone leaves fall today

i like sad satellites

your touch is all too much
said a raven to a cloud
all you borrow all you steal
all the sky you pour over me..

i like sad satellites

August 2010: Traitor On The Inside

Lyrics

TRAITOR ON THE INSIDE

come and see my beautiful country
where the lights go out at six in the evening
the winter can leave you depressed and freezing
and the summer won't melt the northern heart
traitor on the inside

I got friends in high places
they owe me one to make me faceless
I can speak and remain nameless
I'll disappear into the air
traitor on the inside
won't you let me out

there's a heart that's always aching
left alone and thrown out for breaking
a heart so strong that it will go on
long after our world is gone
traitor on the inside
won't you let it out
let it out

Red Carpet - Sad Eyed Disco Dancers

Red Carpet was by far one of the most amazing bands ever from the Finnish indie pop scene. We were fortunate enough to have them cover us on their farewell ep 'The Band They Coulnd't Hang' in 2007.

Here's their cover of our track Sad Eyed Disco Dancers, from our Melancholydisco album.

Check out more Red Carpet from their MySpace page or from Last.fm (although you should know that there are several other Red Carpets as well).

Lyrics

sad eyed disco dancers
shy away the glances
hide inside their favourite songs

sad eyed disco dancers
teargas on the dancefloor
hearts riot by the mirrorball

sad eyed disco dancers

sad eyed disco dancers
lost in the neon sadness
comforting strobe oblivion

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers
sleepdancing past their chances
disconnected from the world

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers
cool cats and silly prancers
nowhere else to go

sad eyed disco dancers

I'm lonely, you're lonely too
we dance and I only see you
don't let the music end
if only by chance something could take place

sad eyed disco dancers

Lyrics

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
You move, you move me so
Let the music flow

Hey baby, just don't stop
I'm your captive on the dance floor
I want to see much more

I can't keep up with you
I get out of step
This is too much
Make-up's running down.

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
A kiss is what I'm longing for
One look and I'm all yours

Hey baby, just don't stop
The night is young
oh no
I'm already getting slow

Do I have to keep going on
Don't you already know
you have to take me
home with you

Oh how you dance
You have to take me

Oh how you dance
This is too much

Oh how you dance
You have to take me
home with you
