What You Want
My Bloody Valentine Lyrics


What I do I say
But I can't get far away
Oh, I go back to
A memory again
What you want
But you know that I'm alive
Then I'll go back to you
Don't you know (what I) feel inside

When you (come down) blue
But I do, I do, I do
Oh, I come back to
The one who calls my name out
What you want
Don't you know that I can smile
Then I go back to you
And then you make (him go inside)

Turn around and smile
No they can't see through your eye
Could I fall into the one that calls me mine
Come back down, but I can't believe my mind
Then it surrounds you
Don't you know that I'll ask why

When you (come down) blue
But I do, I do, I do
Oh, I come back to
The one who calls my name out
What you want
Let me know that I'm alive
Then I go back to you
And then you make (him go inside)

Yaye

What I do I say
But I can't get far away
Oh, I go back to
A memory again
What you want
But you know that I'm alive
Then I'll go back to you
Don't you know (what I) feel inside

When you (come down) blue
But I do, I do, I do
Oh, I come back to
The one who calls my name out
What you want
Don't you know that I can smile
Then I go back to you
And then you make (him go inside)

Turn around and smile
No they can't see through your eye
Could I fall into the one that calls me mine
Come back down, but I can't believe my mind
Then it surrounds you
Don't you know that I'll ask why

When you (come down) blue
But I do, I do, I do
Oh, I come back to
The one who calls my name out
What you want
Let me know that I'm alive
Then I go back to you
And then you make (him go inside)

What makes me like this song so much is how the melody is sounds almost absent, but the mood and aesthetic are more palpable than any single other mbv song. it’s like wall of sound meets the beach boys meets the jesus and mary chain. three things that in themselves aren’t mutually exclusive but when they end up together on this track, it just transcends all of its predecessors. i dont think kevin shields, let alone any “rock” outfit, will surpass this track in terms of spirituality or through the medium of shoegaze

Adam Tobin

Wow well said. I’m having that same thought listening to it right now. Beautifully sad and a transcendent sound that is hard to articulate. The distortion just envelopes you.
