Unmade Bed
Sonic Youth Lyrics


Look who's come back home again
Loser looking for his lucky break
This time he says he just needs a friend
Ain't on the run he ain't on the take

Can you take this door babe
Will you just undo the chain
Will you take your time before you
Mix up love, his love and pain

Loneliness lays down his head
Wants to get you high, better take it now
A man like that's like an unmade bed
Stained eyes searching for another way out

Does it matter if you even want this
Maybe you just don't care
All I know it takes just one kiss, babe
For you, he's never there

Hey I know it's kinda hard
And maybe this time it will never end
Hit and run lover back in your heart
Answered prayers you should never have sent

Cause now that your in his arms babe
You know your just in his way
Suckered by his fatal charm, oh girl
It's time we get away

Look who's come back home again
Loser looking for his lucky break
This time he says he just needs a friend
Ain't on the run he ain't on the take
Can you take this door babe
Will you just undo the chain
Will you take your time before you
Mix up love, his love and pain
Loneliness lays down his head
Wants to get you high, better take it now
A man like that's like an unmade bed
Stained eyes searching for another way out
Does it matter if you even want this
Maybe you just don't care
All I know it takes just one kiss, babe
For you, he's never there
Hey I know it's kinda hard
And maybe this time it will never end
Hit and run lover back in your heart
Answered prayers you should never have sent
Cause now that your in his arms babe
You know your just in his way
Suckered by his fatal charm, oh girl
It's time we get away

Let’s do this right, shall we? Tell me this isn’t about Thurston and Kim when he wrote this...

Look who’s come back home again
A loser looking for his lucky break
This time - He says he just
needs “a friend”
He ain’t on the run
He ain’t on the take

“Can you unlock this door babe?”
(He asks from behind the locked door)
“Will you just undo the chain?” (He insists)
Will you take your time before
you mix up Love and his Love and pain?
(Her hesitating behind the door thinking)

Loneliness lays down his head
He wants to get you high
You better take it now
A man like that’s like an unmade bed
His stained eyes searching for
another way out

“Do you really even want this?”
(She asks him?)
“Maybe you just don’t care?”
(She flatly states to him uncertain)

All I know..
It takes just one kiss, baby, from me

“He’s never there” (She tells him half pleading)

Hey, I know it’s kinda hard
and maybe this time.. It’ll never end
A Hit and Run Lover back in your heart
All those answered prayers
you should never have sent

Cos now that you’re in his arms, babe
Know that you’re just in his way
suckered by his fatal charm
(Looking at her... he replies)
“Oh girl... it’s time we get away”

There you have it... Thoughts?



風呂幸

Around 2004, when I was listening to "Sonic Nurse",
I was a classical music college student.
I was tired of the bitter world of classical music,
so one day I exclaimed to the composer's professor,
"I can't take your lecture!"
One day, during the lecture of Professor,
I blasted "Kill Your Idols" with a huge speaker in the protest hall.
I got out of college, giving a fuck sign to my professor.
Even now, I work as a classical composer and punk rocker.
I'm usually quiet, but You can't touch it if I'm sharp!

Look who's come back home again
Loser looking for his lucky break
This time he says he just needs a friend
Ain't on the run he ain't on the take

Can you unlock this door babe
Will you just undo the chain
Will you take yr time before you
Mix up love, his love and pain

Loneliness lays down his head
Wants to get you high, better take it now
A man like that's like an unmade bed
Stained eyes searching for another way out

Do you really even want this
Maybe you just don't care
All I know it takes just one kiss, babe
For you - he's never there

Hey I know it's kinda hard
And maybe this time it will never end
Hit and run lover back in yr heart
All those answered prayers that you never have sent

Cuz now that yr in his arms babe
You know yr just in his way
Suckered by his fatal charm, oh girl
It's time we get away

Their greatest song imo

@iGod Yeah, Incinerate is great too. I think their 00's work is their best and most accessible.

iGod

what about incinerate?

Pepe Frog

That's great buddy

Caetano Rampinelli

I already did a similar thing.

When this came out I was in high school - a little late to Sonic Youth, but the harmonics in this song always gave me chills and literally gave me goosebumps. I think I need to consider it one of my top songs of all time just bc the guitar at @1:50 :D
