Bring me back to life
Never let me go
Your troubles and your strife
I saw them
Take me by the hand
As we cross through battlefields
Nobody understands
‘Cause there's nobody at the wheel

Beautiful James
I don’t want to wake you
Beautiful James
I don’t want to wake you

Everybody lies
One hundred times a day
The silence in your eyes
Is far too rare to give away
And it's exactly why I stay

Beautiful James
I don’t want to wake you
Beautiful James
I don’t want to wake you

I don’t want to wake you
Beautiful James
Don’t want to wake you

I don't want to wake you
Don’t want to wake you
Beautiful James
Don’t want to wake you
I don’t want to wake you

Though I may have to
I may have to
I may have to

Beautiful James
I don’t wanna wake you
Don’t wanna wake you
Beautiful James
Don’t wanna wake you
I don’t wanna wake you
Don’t wanna wake you
Beautiful James
Don’t wanna wake you
I don’t wanna wake you

    I heard this song on the radio today and it immediately brought back old memories, thinking that it was one of the songs I used to listen to during my childhood... and there here I am discovering that this song came out like a month ago and honestly I don't know what to say.

    I was ‘mosher’ In 1999 & I bought Nancy boy, it was the first cd I ever bought and I asked for an advisement on my pocket money to buy it. The b side was a smiths cover ‘big mouth’ 🖤 I would go to secondary school and just feel so different from everyone and then I’d go home and have to deal with the broken adults that were around me. something so nostalgic about molkos voice. Sad times but happy memories 🤍

    Can you imagine a world without music? How would you feel about it? What would you miss the most?

    Te imaginas un mundo sin música? Como te sentirias? Que seria lo que mas extrañarias?

    There is something most restful to come across new music from an act you enjoy, they is both current but comfortably like their old sound.
