The Look
Metronomy Lyrics


You're up and you'll get down
You never running from this town
Kinda think you said
You'll never get anything better than this
'Cause you're going 'round in a circle
And everyone knows you're trouble

'Cause you read it in a big book
And now you're giving me the look look
But just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

Get up and we get down
We're always running round this town
And to think they said
We'd never make anything better than this
'Cause we're always in small circles
And everyone thinks we're trouble

We didn't read it in the big book
And now we're giving you the look look
Just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

You're up and you'll get down
You never running from this town
Kinda think you said
You'll never get anything better than this
'Cause you're going round in a circle
And everyone knows you're trouble
'Cause you read it in a big book
And now you're giving me the look look
But just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

Get up and we get down
We're always running round this town
And to think they said
We'd never make anything better than this
'Cause we're always in small circles
And everyone thinks we're trouble
We didn't read it in the big book
And now we're giving you the look look
Just remember how we shook shook
And all the things we took took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

[Verse 1]
You're up and you'll get down
You're never running from this town
Kind of think you said
"You'll never get anything better than this
'Cause you're going 'round in circles
And everyone knows you're trouble"

[Chorus]
'Cause you read it in a big book
And now you're giving me the look, look
But just remember how we shook, shook
And all the things we took, took
This town's the oldest friend of mine

[Verse 2]
Get up and we get down
We're always running 'round this town
And to think they said
We'd never make anything better than this
'Cause we're always in small circles
And everyone thinks we're trouble

[Chorus]
We didn't read it in a big book (we didn't read it in a big book, big book, big book)
And now we're giving you the look, look (giving you the look, ah, giving you the look, ah-ah)
Just remember how we shook, shook (shook, shook, shook, shook)
And all the things we took, took (took, took, took, took)
(This town, this town) This town's the oldest friend of mine

[Bridge]
(This town, this town, this town)

It’s so crazy how clean each instrument sounds as it enters the song. Is it just me? I can hear literally each individual part. Doesn’t sound “mashed” up at all

Christopher Weise

@Gabriel Roig-Francoli - True, but this isn't compressed into oblivion like most pop music is. That's the real difference.

Flame Girl

Definitely! Very underrated band

Gabriel Roig-Francoli
