Mark Lanegan Lyrics

Love there are flowers hanging in the vine
So high you cannot see
Now my mind must go on holiday, torn from it's hook, a broken valentine
I see the smoke from a revolver, will I get hit, I hardly care
When I'm bombed I stretch like bubblegum
And look too long straight at the morning sun
Love there are flowers along the avenue, all things perfectly in place
I build a shrine
I set a monument
Because you're fire
Because you're a fire escape

I keep listening at this song when everyone is sleeping and when i'm drunk and have an idea of eternity

Gustavo Florindo

I build a shrine; I set a monument. Because you're fire; Because you're fire escape.

Eu construo um templo; eu levanto um templo. Porque você é fogo; você é saída de incêndio.


In his book of lyrics and writings he describes the recording of this song and how Wendy Rae as such a bizarre counter melody,he gave her the words and had her sing along to his vocal without hearing the song first. That’s why she sounds a little behind on some notes and it creates such a spooky effect


@SchlafAroundTheBend his lyric book, I Am the Wolf


Interesting, what book is that?
