Only Shallow
my bloody valentine Lyrics


Sleep
Like a pillow
Down(ward)
And
(Where)
She won't care
Anyway (where)

Soft
As a pillow
Touch her there
Where she won't dare
Somewhere
Sleep
Like a (royal)
(Subject)

Think
That you grew
Stronger there
Speak
Your troubles
She's not scared

Soft like there's silk
Everywhere
Sleep
(Is a) pillow
Come

Where she won't dare
Anyway (where)
(Look)
In the mirror
She's not there
Where she won't care
Somewhere

Wanna hear a cool story?
I bought this cassette whenitI was first released. as a teenager. I knew nothing about the band. I bought it based on the name alone.
So I get in my car and pop it in the player.
Something had to be wrong with my cassette player, I thought. Maybe the tape speed was off or something.
I pulled out the tape and put back in. Same thing. So it had to be something wrong with the tape.
I was bummed. I drove back to Hastings at Red Bird Mall. Dallas, Tx.
I told the clerk “hey, somethings the matter with this tape. It’s warped. I think it got damage from the heat whilst in transit!” I didn’t actually use the word ‘whilst’ but man it’s such a cool word
He says “oh no man. Go grab you another one”. I said “cool”.
Went out to my car and popped in the cassette. That one was warped too!
I went back in the mall and demanded my money back. He says “so are you sure it’s not your cassette player?” I say “no way, dude. It’s an Alpine”. He agreed.
He says “I’m gonna grab you a fresh tape from a different shipment”. I’m like “cool”.
He comes out and says “let’s try it out first”. He pops it in the house system.
There’s that crazy warped tape sound again.
We go through three or four more tapes. Same problem.
Manager comes in. We explain the dilemma. A record label is shipping defective My Bloody Calentine cassettes.
He probably gasped. I don’t know.
He gets another tape and says @put it in”. The guy says “alright then”.
Pops it in. Here we go again.
Me and the guy look at each other as if agreeing there is something quite sinister going on. Possible subliminal propaganda infiltration from the Russians?
Nope. Turns out the manager says to me and the guy “kids, this IS the right tape., no defects. This is how this band sounds”
That, my friends is the story of how My Bloody Valentine blew my ever loving mind. -

Sleep like a pillow, no one there
Where she won't care--anywhere
Soft as a pillow, touch her there
Where she won't dare--somewhere

Sweet and mellow, softer there
Feel like you grew stronger there
Speak your trouble, she's not square
Soft like her silk everywhere

Sleep as a pillow, comfort there
Where she won't dare--anywhere
Look in the mirror, she's not there
Where she won't care--somewhere

when this song first came out i was 18 years old and was watching mtv's 120 minutes on a sunday night back in 90 ,91? and i was blown away!

Joseph Gooding

Definitely got their own sound, tingling & heavy,nice

Jay River

Hey that's me. Heard the band name come up over the years and wanted to get an impression of the band.
At first it was uncomfortable, annoying and gave me a slight headache, but at the same time it surprised me as being very deep. A distorted sea rollercoaster which makes you crave for reassurance of the vocals. I endured it and say it is not my usual cup of tea but worth giving the band a chance and exploring more of the catalog. Some stuff you have to train your ears/mind to absorb. Not world bending to me but inspiring, I'd def love to listen more to this with my kids, just not during any road trips.

Volevo e desideravo almeno altri 4 dischi di questa leggendaria BAND!

Like waking up from a dream you can't quite remember the details of... Only the feeling it left you with.

This song is insanely addictive. I love the balance between the insanely heavy music and the beautiful gentle vocals.

Red Skies

Hi I recommend an indie rock song & video called 'Looking Into The Mirror' By Robert Nix

Lorrena Elliott

No sound engineer wanted to record them because they refused to sonically agree with them that vocals could be on same level as all the guitars and their pedal effects….the lead singer, he was a nutter (or aGenius ….) He knew what he was trying to achieve ….
