Radiohead – High & Dry

lyrics

Two jumps in a week I bet you think that’s pretty clever don’t you boy
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You’d kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror
You’re turning into something you are not
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk & all your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They’re the ones who’ll hate you when you think you’ve got the world all sussed out
They’re the ones who’ll spit at you
You will be the one screaming out
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
It’s the best thing that you ever had
It’s the best thing that you ever had
The best thing that you’ve had has gone away
So don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
don’t leave me dry

notes: phil: “one from the vaults-proof that demos are generally the best versions of songs”. ed: “i really don’t remember the day that this was recorded with our sound engineer, jim. all i do know is that we arranged the song before we went into the studio, but it ended up sounding great!” jonny: this used to sound like soul to soul. a first take demo from ages ago.” colin: “over 2 years old now…ah! so young, pure and innocent then – now i’m just old, pure and innocent! damn!”. thom: an accident just like evil kenevil”.
