Dorian
Agnes Obel Lyrics


They won't know who we are
So we both can pretend
It's written on the mountains
A line that never ends

As the devil spoke we spilled out on the floor
And the pieces broke and the people wanted more
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end?
Will you ever let us carry on?

Swaying like the children
Singled out for praise
The inside out on the open
With the straightest face

As the sad-eyed woman spoke we missed our chance
The final dying joke caught in our hands
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end?
Will you ever let us carry on?

Oh, Dorian, carry on
Will you come along to the end?
Will you ever let us carry on?
Dorian, will you follow us down?

They won't know who we are
So we both can pretend
It's written on the mountains
A line that never ends

As the devil spoke we spilled out on the floor
And the pieces broke and the people wanted more
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Swaying like the children,
Singled out for praise
The inside out on the open
With the straightest face

As the sad-eyed woman spoke we missed our chance,
The final dying joke caught in our hands
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on
Dorian, will you follow us down

They won't know who we are
So we both can pretend
It's written on the mountains
A line that never ends

As the devil spoke we spilled out on the floor
And the pieces broke and the people wanted more
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Swaying like the children,
Singled out for praise
The inside out on the open
With the straightest face

As the sad-eyed woman spoke we missed our chance,
The final dying joke caught in our hands
And the rugged wheel is turning another round

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on

Dorian, carrion,
Will you come along to the end
Will you ever let us carry on
Dorian, will you follow us down

Agnes Obel: ‘Dorian’ is about the inter-relational thing between two people, that you can’t put words on but you know is there. And when you reach the point of no return, and you are sort of swaying, or are suspended, into this weird space of nothingness, and you are still longing for all the good stuff that you had before. ‘Dorian’ is sort of my construction of that state of mind. Nobody outside this bubble of these two people can see it, so it looks really pretty and great but then if you step into this ring, you see that it’s all sort of falling apart and rotting. I felt like Dorian was such a beautiful name and… for me, I like to make out my own meaning for a word, imply my own stories to words or names, so in the back of my mind, of course, I knew about Dorian Gray but it was not deliberate or about that character. I am sure it coloured it but it wasn’t about it.

Beautifully concluded and beautifully written !

It could just as easily be about metaphysics, about the story of humanity. How when the devil spoke we all spilled out on the floor, f.i. Maybe Agnes is clairvoyant or has such insights?

Nice words and really true...

Have you read the picture of Dorian Gray? If not do so. It's very beautiful.
