Lyrics

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the old Santa has gone AWOL
his endless shopping mall tours have taken their toll
and Christmas is getting close
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

and Christmas Eve arrives
you descend from the sky
in your homemade spaceship
amidst the snow confetti
wearing your shiny grey suit
with your loyal crew
of orange elves and furry friends
and Michael, Steven and Kliph

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
shake our little snow globe world
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

it's the most wonderful show
our senses overflow
it feels just like Christmas
to be sprinkled with love
the greatest Christmas present
is to treasure the present
and drop all worries and regrets

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
we feel Christmas all year long
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

make us smile and make us cry
show us why we need to try
even if our hearts might break
they're fixable with duct tape

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

September 2010: Puppies In The Rain

There goes yet another warm summer and it's time to cuddle up under a warm blanket to make sure you stay warm through the cold dark winter.

But make sure you don't forget our little furry friends, puppies!

PUPPIES IN THE RAIN

puppies in the rain
they'll steal your heart away
under autumn's veil
loppy ears and soggy tails
they don't even know their names
or if they have yet any
if the coldest heart can break
it will break for them

for puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

puppies in the rain
lost on a strange terrain
they just want to play
but they'll need a safer place
a warm lap and loving arms
that'll never let them down
the cold world makes us all bark
but we only want some love

like puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain

take them home and dry their hair
tuck them in a warm blanket
and they'll snuggle up to somebody who deserves it

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

we're puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

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

Life's Too Long

One of our most misunderstood titles! No gloominess here, just starry-eyed optimism. It's weird how much context can change words: "Life's too long" is very different from "Life's too long, to bear alone"

Lyrics

you hide behind the ordinary
waste life for the temporary
too tired to even dream of going
nowhere with nothing to lose

life's too long if it's not your own
sometimes it can feel all wrong
life's too long to bear alone
longer if you hibernate

hard times prepare you for the worse
but real life can't be rehearsed
decide that you can still be happy
don't wait for the end of the show

life's too long if it's not your own
sometimes it can feel all wrong
life's too long to bear alone
longer if you hibernate
