Very Happy

Quote:
... Shake me down again
... Shake me down and then
... Shake me down again
I can take what I've been through

I've been used and abused
I've been chased and I've been bruised
I can take what I've been through
I've been naked on the news
I've been debased and disabused
Just leave me downtown when you're through
Turn me over
Turn me in
I have slept with all the girls in Berlin

Girls on smoke and girls on weed
Girls on coke and girls on speed
Girls who choke and girls who smile
Girls who swallow in denial
Girls in crisis, ultra-hipped
Weird as Isis, wide as Egypt
Girls in cars and girls on strips
Girls in bars and girls on tips
Girls on journeys, girls on trips
Girls on gurneys, girls on drips
And a girl too far with pale blue lips so shake me down again

Girls like you with poison tips
Girls like you like pistol whips
Girls in over-zealous green
With a third degree in jealousy so
Turn me over
Turn me in
I have slept with all the girls in Berlin

So is he giving us a hint as to what might end up on the new record? Or am I exhausting my store of optimism (which is an admittedly rather limited and unnatural thing)? Laughing

'Slept' or 'I've slept with all the girls in Berlin' or whatever you want to call it.

Andrew seems to want to call it I Have Slept With All The Girls In Berlin so perhaps we should change the name of the thread.

Another change is:

"I can take what I've been through"
to
"I can wake up in this zoo"

yes, you're right. Smile

only just noticed mh's post with the "original" incarnation of the lyrics copied from the girls' website. miss airhead here has been looking at the new version all along and trying to figure out why she can't see any changes.

and the moral of this story is: not going near a computer during the day is not a good thing - not when Our fearless leader! (or a higher power of some sort) decides to update the site Laughing

Shake me down again ...

A wonderful lyric about sort of (self-)abandonment.
Though, when I heard it played live, mostly other aspects like prestige, envy or jealousy prevailed. So I might be well off mark.

does anyone else get the feeling that he's revising them as he's writing them down for the web? even songs he's already been singing for a couple of years are getting 'upgrades'?

hmmm

do you think that this formalising (if you will) of his lyrics feels a bit like he's gearing up to something? Idea Surprised

It would be really great if that were the case, and there's a major part of me (and probably the rest of us) wants it to be so. Also a risk of "crumbs from the masters table" though, after all there is also precedent there (going back years) with Summer, Susanne and others.

It doesn't matter that much to me anymore to be honest. It's quite a relief actually, the moment you realise that you don't have to struggle and suffer and wait and expect anymore. Only then you can truly take part in what is happening at a given moment here and now. Very Happy

Inasmuch as he appears to revise them as he sings them, revising them as he writes them down isn't much of a stretch. Wink

See earlier comment... Rolling Eyes

The fear is that he's just keeping his hand in during this protracted lull in the schedule. Neutral

The hope is that this tour has been the fire under him that's been needed. Cool

All in all, a season of wild mood swings. Laughing
