Radiohead – Jigsaw Falling Into Place

lyrics
Just as you take my hand
Just as you write my number down
Just as the drinks arrive
Just as they play your favourite song
As the magic disappears
No longer wound up like a spring
Before you’ve had too much
Come back and focus again
The walls abandon shape
You’ve got a cheshire cat grin
All blurring into one
This place is on a mission
Before the night owl
Before the animal noises
Closed circuit cameras
Before you’re comatose
Before you run away from me
Before you’re lost between the noise
The beat goes round and round
The beat goes round and round
I never really got there
I just pretended that I had
What’s the point of instruments
Words are a sawed off shotgun
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Before you run away from me
Before you start unravelling
Before you take my mic
Just as you dance, dance, dance
Jigsaws falling into place
There is nothing to explain
Regard each other as you pass
She looks back, you look back
Not just once
Not just twice
Wish away the nightmare
Wish away the nightmare
You’ve got a light you can feel it on your back
You’ve got a light you can feel it on your back
Jigsaws falling into place

Notes:

Jigsaw Falling Into Place was previously known as ‘Open Pick’ and good contender for Radiohead’s 7th album ‘In Rainbows’. On March 8th 2006 the song appeared on the studio’s blackboard, which looked like a shortlist of tracks for the rehearsal sessions for Radiohead’s 2006 tour. The track premiered on the band’s first date of that tour at KB Hallen in Copenhagen. The track did appear on ‘In Rainbows’ eventually, renamed to ‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place’ as announced on October 1st, 2007. First official release of the song was ten days later on the digital ‘In Rainbows’ release on October 10th. The track has been announced as the first single from ‘In Rainbows’ on new label XL Recordings, to be released on January 14, 2008.
