Elephant
Cut Capers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Secret summer escapades
From dusk to dawn unplanned
Night time lovers serenade
Each other on the Grand
I can feel it in the air
Magical and sweet
Drinks will flow, no one knows
Who they'll meet

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

Twisting through the cobbled streets
Where old and new collide
Bridges arch the waterways
That run and intertwine
Sun illuminates the scene
People smile and grin
Tipsy nights, heat ignites
The wild within

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah
I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

You know I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Yeah

Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do




Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do

Glad to be... glad! Bristol music scene is once more fresh and new! I don't know how to name Cut Capers' sound, the only thing I can say is that it's ear-catchy and lively, quite the opposite from the sound that made Bristol famous in the Nineties (sound that I love, btw). 🔝🔝🔝
