Roscoe
Midlake Lyrics


Stone cutters made them from stones
Chosen specially for you and I
Who will live inside
The mountaineers gathered timber
Piled high
In which to take along
Driving many miles, knowing they'd get here

When they got here, all exhausted
On the roof leaks they got started
And now when the rain comes
We can be thankful

Ooh ah ooh
When the mountaineers
Saw that everything fit
They were glad and so they took off

Thought we were due for
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with

The village used to be all one really needs
Now it's filled with hundreds and hundreds of
Chemicals that mostly surround you
You wish to flee but it's not like you
So listen to me, listen to me

Oh, and when the morning comes
We will step outside
We will not find another man in sight
We like the newness, the newness of all
That has grown in our garden soaking for so long

Whenever I was a child I wondered what if my name
Had changed into something more productive like Roscoe
Been born in 1891
Waiting with my Aunt Roseline

Thought we were due for
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with

1891
They roamed around and foraged
They made their house from cedars
They made their house from stones

Oh, they're a little like you, and
They're a little like me
We have all we need

Thought we were due for
A change or two
Around this place
This place
This place

When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with

"Roscoe"

Stone-cutters made them from stones
Chosen specially for you and I
Who will live inside?

The mountaineers gathered timber piled high
In which to take along
Traveling many miles knowing they'd get here

When they got here all exhausted
On the roof leaks they got started
And now when the rain comes we can be thankful
Oooh ah ooh
When the mountaineers saw that everything fit
They were glad and so they took off

Thought we were due for a change
Or two around this place
When they got back they're all mixed up
With no one to stay with

The village used to be all one really needs
Now it's filled with hundreds and hundreds of chemicals
That mostly surround you, you wish to flee
But it's not like you, so listen to me, listen to me

Oh, and when the morning comes
We will step outside
We will not find another man in sight
We like the newness, the newness of all
That has grown in our garden
Struggling for so long

Whenever I was a child
I wonder what if my name had changed
Into something more productive
Like Roscoe been born in 1891
Waiting with my aunt Roselin

Thought we were due for a change
Or two around this place
When they got back they're all mixed up
With no one to stay with

1891
They roamed around and foraged
They made their house from cedars
They made their house from stone

Well, they're a little like you
And they're a little like me
We have all we need

Thought we were due for a change
Or two around this place
This place, this place

When they got back they're all mixed up
With no one to stay with
When they got back they're all mixed up
With no one to stay with

Os artesãos as fizeram das pedras
Escolhidas especialmente para você e eu
Quem viverá abrigado?

Os montanhistas reuniram a lenha em pilhas altas
As quais levaram
Caminhando muitas milhas, sabendo que chegariam aqui

Quando eles chegaram aqui, todos exaustos
Nas goteiras do telhado dos quais ele fundaram
E agora, quando a chuva chegar, podemos ser gratos

Quando os montanhistas viram que tudo se encaixava
Eles estavam contentes e assim eles partiram

Achei que era hora de mudar
Uma ou duas coisas neste lugar
Quando eles voltarem estão todos confusos
Sem ninguém para acompanhar

A villa costumava ser tudo o que alguém realmente precisa
Agora ela está cheia de centenas e centenas de produtos químicos
Que estão ao seu redor, e você almeja partir
Mas isso não é você, então você me ouça, você me ouça

Oh, e quando a manhã chegar
Nós vamos sair
Não vamos encontrar nenhum homem à vista
Nós gostamos da novidade, a novidade para todos
Que cresceu em nosso jardim
Resistindo por tanto tempo

Sempre desde que eu era criança
Eu imaginava como seria se meu nome tivesse mudado
Para algo mais produtivo
Como Roscoe que nasceu em 1891
Esperando com minha tia Rosaline

Achei que era hora de mudar
Uma ou duas coisas neste lugar
Quando eles voltarem estão todos confusos
Sem ninguém para acompanhar

1891 Eles vagaram e colheram
Eles fizeram suas casa de cedros
Eles fizeram sua casa de pedras

Oh, eles são um pouco de ti
E eles são um pouco de mim
Temos tudo o que precisamos

Achei que era hora de mudar
Uma ou duas coisas neste lugar
Quando eles voltarem estão todos confusos
Sem ninguém para acompanhar

Stone cutters made them from stones
Chosen specially for you and I
Who will live inside
The mountaineers gathered timber
Piled high
In which to take along.
Driving many miles, knowing they'd get here.
When they got here, all exhausted
On the roof leaks they got started
And now when the rain comes
We can be thankful
Oh ah oh
When the mountaineers
Saw that everything fit,
They were glad and so they took off
Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with
The village used to be all one really needs
That's filled with hundreds and hundreds of
Chemicals that mostly surround you
You wish to flee but it's not like you
So listen to me, listen to me
Oh, and when the morning comes,
We will step outside
We will not find another man inside
We like the newness, the newness of all
That has grown in our garden soaking for so long
Whenever I was a child I wondered what if my name
Had changed into something more productive like Roscoe
Been born in 1891
Waiting with my Aunt Rosaline
Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with
1891
They looked around the forest
They made their house from cedars
They made their house from stones
Oh, they're a little like you, and
They're a little like me
When they're falling me
Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
(This place)
(This place)
When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with
(When they get back they're all mixed up with no one to stay with)

This song is just TOO good. I listened to it all the time and ruined the experience for myself. It was there in my head every time I'd try and go to sleep, no matter how hard I tried to think of something else. Now I try to limit myself to one listen every few months, or on the (now quite rare) occasion it comes on the radio then I'll give it my undivided attention and be reminded of my past indulgence. I'm thinking of starting a support group for other people in a similar position to me... Roscoe's Anonymous

Hahaha. I get it. My replacement sounds were fake thunderstorms. It worked.

YoloPokeCarp

As someone who liked the song so much they changed their name to roscoe... I can relate-

Richard Warfield

The Dude

It’s permanently in my car CD player!

Mike Stapleton

The verse that starts at 1:45 and ends at 2:35, is absolute perfection!!

@Schnoz Chan agreed my favorite bit

"Whenever I was a child, I wondered what if my name had changed into something more productive like Roscoe, been born in 1891 waiting with my Aunt Roslyn"

Such a fucking wild line to just put into a song and have it work FLAWLESSLY.

txery

1:35 - 2:35 better

Eylül Akaydın

between 00:00 and 04:45 is perfection
