Cherry-Coloured Funk
Cocteau Twins Lyrics


Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news

Still being cried and laughed at from behind
Down far behind this fabulous, my turn rules

Beetles and eggs and blues and bells and eggs and blues
Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news

You'll hang the hearts black and dull as the night
We hanged your pass and start being as you in ecstasy
(Still being cried and laughed at before)
Should I be sewn in, hugged, I can by not saying
(Still being cried and laughed at from light to blue)
And should I be hugged and tugged down through this tiger's masque
And should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
You mind not saying

He'll hang that heart's black and dull as the night
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
We hanged your pass and star being as you in ecstasy
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
Should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
Hugged and tugged down through this tiger's masque for key

Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news

Still being cried and laughed at from behind
Down far behind this fabulous, my turn rules

Beetles and eggs and blues and bells and eggs and blues
Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news

You'll hang the hearts black and dull as the night
We hanged your pass and start being as you in ecstasy
(Still being cried and laughed at before)
Should I be sewn in, hugged, I can by not saying
(Still being cried and laughed at from light to blue)
And should I be hugged and tugged down through this tiger's masque
And should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
You mind not saying

Bells and aches and blues and pour a little everything else,

The steam are instable, eyes of glass; not get pissed off through my bird lips.
Ask anew...
‘Still be hanged dry and laughed at from behind
Dont fall behind these fragments, might earn use

Bells and aches and blues and bells and aches and blues
Bells and aches and blues and pour a little everything else,
The steam are instable, eyes of glass; not get pissed off through my bird lips.
Ask anew...
You hang the hearts black and dull as the knight
We heard your calls and stopped being as you make us be
(must have been cried and laughed at before)
Should I be sewn in, hugged, dark in my menses
(must have been cried and laughed at from night to blue)
And should I be hugged and tugged down through this tiger’s maws
And should i be sung and unbroken by not saying
The man that sang

You hang the hearts black and dull as the knight
(must have been cried and laughed at from behind me)
We heard your calls and stopped being as you make us be
(must have been cried and laughed at from behind me)
Should I be sewn in, hugged, dark in my menses
(must have been cried and laughed at from behind me)
Hugged and tugged down through this tiger’s maws, fuck it

I love this song and wanted lyrics that were on the same level of epic as the sound. For reference:
The plural form of steam = steam
Knight = She clearly pronounces a 'K'...my best guess is that the knight refers to the grim reaper (death)
menses = the mix of blood and other matter discharged during menstruation
maws = the jaws or throat of a violent animal

With these lyrics there is a totally new way to connect and internalize the song.
What do these lyrics represent to you? I would love to hear!

I showed this song to my friend a few months ago. He liked it.. today was his funeral and I'm listening again alone.

I'm so sorry for your loss

@Anna Gonzalez I was posting about this song when I was in a vulnerable state. I wasn't planning for so many amazing people to outpour emotional support like this. Its nice to see that good people still exist. No need to be bitter.

Its 1am..and im in the dark sleeping next to me new gf that is still fragile from falling and hitting her head, and ive been thinking about good things and bad things, and hoping this relationship works out but not knowing if it will or not, and I read your msg and it sounded so nice in the beginning... then the last part made me think of a very close friend that died when we were 19..im 28 now..I couldn't help but tear up reading your msg.. felt cathartic tbh.

This must be exactly what English sounds like to foreign people

John RossStar

Her entire style was created by listening to those Bulgarian folk singers who often sang sounds.
Reminds me a bit of YES where Jon Anderson would use words more for their feeling they impart than the literal meaning.

Nah, as a non-native I find english pretty easy, German in the other hand...
