The Beat Dies
The Raveonettes Lyrics


Adored your picture a thousand times
You still think I was out of line
The meanest thing that I ever did
Was asking you for another hit

The first love you can't escape
The second love feels like rape
A giggly smile night-pale face
I hear you whispering hope he stays
The beat dies silence
Stay here with me
White deathly face
I'm in love

They file out to lovers sad
We walk from bar to bar mad
The first kiss don't think thereof
The second kiss and you're in love

Really this song almost broke them. It is such a great tune. I wonder how that happened.

In an interview, they discussed LUST LUST LUST & when they came across "The Beat Dies", Sharin explained how they almost broke up just because of the lyrics. I believe they argued about the part, "I hear you whispering hope he stays". Sharin said that it made more sense to say "hope she stays", and Sune thought otherwise. They jokingly said that sometimes they can be so stubborn. Sorry the reply is so long, by the way. Keep on raving! :)

I enjoy this communication

The intro of this song sounds similar to the intro song of the TV show, Twin Peaks. Nonetheless, it is a good song!

Adored your picture a thousand times
You still think i was out of line
The meanest thing that i ever did
Was asking you for another hit

The first love you can't escape
The second love feels like rape
A giggly smile, nightpale face
I hear you whispering "hope she stays"

The beat dies, silence
Stay here with me
White deathly face
I'm in love

They file out to lovers sad
We walk from bar to bar mad
The first kiss, don't think thereof
The second kiss and you're in love
