The Cocteau Twins: Fifty-Fifty Clown

Uncategorized

Of all the bands and singers out there, there really isn’t a single other who writes lyrics quite like The Cocteau Twins. I don’t know how they access those inaccessible places but I want to find out.

This song is stunning in every way… like just about every other song on that album.

I don’t share music often on my blog, but when I do… it is for very good reason.

The Cocteau Twins are a constant muse.

Fifty-Fifty Clown By The Cocteau Twins


[Verse 1]
I felt rewarded on being so ugly, eh
Oh, and you’re a long shadow
I felt rewarded on being so ugly, eh
I felt rewarded on being so ugly, eh
Oh, and you’re a long shadow
I felt rewarded on being so ugly, eh


[Verse 2]
Smile and face your wife angry
His life don’t despise what’s in eyes
He skips so as the seasons
To come as a breeze has
Again, ahead

[Verse 3]
We’ll rust, our nose dust
Ephemeral with peace and, oh its true
He can’t comfort the brain
He was calm as he was
Again, ahead

[Verse 4]
And is this safe flowing, love, soul and light Motions all in motion emotions all
Good morning love with someone
I call in light
Motions all in motion emotions all
And is this safe flowing, love, soul and light Motions all in motion emotions all
