Foals After Glow

I know I could not last very long at all

Without you here to break my fall

I know I could not stand alone for very long

Without you there to take my coat

‘Cause you were better than whatever came before

Before you ran out and left me on the 100th floor

Get out and go and find everyone who cared for you

They won’t be there to see you tomorrow

Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for

For it won’t be nothing more tomorrow

No, I could not do the things I did before

Leave you waiting there by that open door

You were better than whatever came before

Without you here and my heart broken to the core

Get out and go and find everyone who cared for you

They won’t be there to see you tomorrow

Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for

For it won’t be nothing more tomorrow

No, I could not stand to be alone for long

There’s something missing in the ever after glow

You were better than whatever came before

Without you here to save me, to save me from the dark

Get out, and go and find everyone who cared for you

They won’t be there to see you tomorrow

Get out, don’t forget everything you cared for

For it won’t be nothing more tomorrow

Foals A Knife In The Ocean

When I come to walk the line the fire may come but we’ll be just fine

When I go to walk the line the fire, it will come but we’ll be just fine

Mouth of the ocean, be well spoken, watch your P’s and Q’s

Now that we’re older, the future is colder but what is there to do?

I’ll walk the line, I’ll be just fine, I’ll be right back on time

The fire is coming but we’ll outrun it, we’ll never be undone

Oh, what came of the things we once believed?

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

Oh, what came of the things we once believed?

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

And now our parents are long departed, who can finish the songs they started?

Bodies are broken but it’s just a token of what is surely to come

Unstitch the suture, please pause the future, so I can collect my things

The fire is coming but we’ll outrun it, we’ll never be undone

Oh, what came of the things we once believed?

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

Oh, what came of the things we once believed?

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

When I go to walk the line the fire, it comes but I’ll be just fine

Oh, what came of the things we once believed?

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

Oh, all lost and, oh, all lost, to the depths of a hungry sea

Oh, all lost to the depths of a hungry sea

All that’s left, all that’s left is the echo of a roaring sea

Long gone, long gone to the trace of a memory

What came of the things I once believed?

All that’s left, all that’s left is the trace of a memory

Foals Late Night

Oh I hope that you somebody,

someone I could count

To pull me to my feet again

when I was in doubt

Oh now Mama, do you hear me?

I’m calling out your name

Oh now Mama, do you hear me?

I’m calling out your name,

I’m calling out your name

I’m the last cowboy in this town

Empty veins and my plastic broken crown

They said I swam the sea that ran around

They said I once was lost but now I’m truly found

And I know the place another way,

I feel, I feel no shame

Oh now Mama, do you hear my fear?

It’s coming after me

I’m calling out your name,

I’m calling out your name

Stay with me, stay with me

Did you throw your heart away?

Oh I know just what I say

Did your phone cut in the way?

Being still downtown I say

And I know you ran away,

oh I know but I’m feeling okay

And I found love and fear won’t go,

and I found love and feeling won’t go

See you walk away, feeling okay now,

happy now, happy now?

Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me

Foals Mountain At My Gates

I see a mountain at my gates

I see it more and more each day

What I give, it takes away

Whether I go or when I stay

I see a mountain at my gates

I see it more and more each day

I see a fire out by the lake

I’ll drive my car without the brakes

I see a mountain in my way

It’s looming larger by the day

I see a darkness in my fate

I’ll drive my car without the brakes

Oh, gimme some time

Show me the foothold from which I can climb

Yeah, when I feel low

You show me a signpost for where I should go

I see a mountain at my gates

I see it more and more each day

And my desire wears a dark dress

But each day, I see you less

Oh, gimme some time

Show me the foothold from which I can climb

Yeah, when I feel low

You show me a signpost for where I should go

Through lanes and stone rows

Black granite, wind blows

Fire lake and far flame

Go now but come again

Dark clouds gather ’round

Will I run or stand my ground?

Oh, when I come to climb

Show me the mountain so far behind

Yeah, it’s farther away

Its shadow gets smaller day after day

Yeah, gimme my way

Gimme my love

Gimme my choice

You keep me coming around

Gimme my fate

Gimme my lungs

Gimme my voice

You keep me coming around

Gimme my lungs

Gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my

Gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my way

Gimme my fate

Gimme my lungs

Gimme my choice

You keep me coming round

Foals This Orient

And now it’s just gone after dark

And we move to the other part of it

Secret part of your restless heart

To glide past every city light

Like a satellite careering through the sky

This colour, this summer night

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

Do you know, you give me

You give me this western feeling

Now look back see how far you’ve come

Will you unravel in the sun

Come undone find your place

Held up high said from string as well

No return to that restless place

You’ve reached it you’ve found your grace

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

Oh do you know, you give me

You give me this western feeling

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

It’s your heart, it’s your heart

That gives me this western feeling

Foals London Thunder

I’m on the red-eye flight to nowhere good.

How about you?

I’ve been in the air for hours, meteor showers by the pool

So one last drink for summer always leaving never you

Come back to London thunder, the sound of sorrow in my room, yeah

And now the tables turn, it’s over

And with my fingers burned I start anew

And now I’ve come back down, I’m older

I look for something else to hold on to

There is no way to realign, upholster skin I take back every line

Lost my mind in San Francisco, the worn out disco when tempers cooled

There is no water, there is no sound

Will you come around? Will you come around?

There is no space, there is no time

Where’d you draw the line?

And now the tables turn, it’s over

And with my fingers burned I start a new

And now I’ve come back down, I’m older

I look for something else to hold on to

I’m on the red-eye flight to nowhere good.

How about you?

Foals Albatross

You got an albatross around your neck, around your neck

You got a hundred broken lightbulbs above your head

They said that you had it coming but I wouldn’t bet

‘Cause you got a slowly ticking time bomb,

And then you see red.

Sunblind, sunblind

You got an albatross around your neck, around your neck

You got a pile of broken wishbones under your bed

And you got a hungry green-eyed monster that you keep fed

And it keeps on coming over, it wants you dead

Sunblind, sunblind

Oh, you burnt the lungs that your ancestors created

You sat by the banks of the river and you waited

Till time rolled back and the water had abated

You drank, you share but you still could not be sated

Quicksands of the mind and the sinkholes you may find

When you look through the twisting of the vines,

The twisting of the vines.

Time comes round again, it’s etching at your bones

Chill wind comes round, it’s blowing through your home

Quicksands of the mind and the sinkholes you may find

When you look through the twisting of the vines.

You burnt the lungs that your ancestors created

You sat by the banks of the river and you waited

Till time rolled back and the water had abated

You drank, you share but you still could not be sated

You said you’re scared of the clocks that keep ticking over

I’ll find a way through a life that we’re living over

Again and again through a life that we’re living over, again and again

A life that we’re living over,

Again and again, again and again and again

Again and again, again and again and again

Foals Blue Blood

You’ve got the blood on your hands, I think it’s my own.

We can go down onto the streets and follow the shores.

Of all the people, we could be two.

Then I bite my nails to the quick, run back home.

You’ve got the blood on your hands, I know it’s my own.

You came at me in the middle of the night to show me my soul.

Of all the people, I hoped it’d be you.

To come and free me, take me away.

To show me my home.

Where I was born.

Where I belong.

You’ve got the blood on your hands, I want you to know.

I hoped that you’d come and take me away, back to my home.

Of all the people, it had to be you.

Then I bite my nails to the quick, run back home.

You showed me.

Where to go.

To my home.

To my home.

So take me.

Through the roads.

That you know.

To my home.

You’ve got the blood on your hands, I know it’s my own.

To where I was born.

Where I belong.

Foals Birch Tree

The city I was born in I left a long time ago

And we lost touch, grew apart, my friend

My heart’s an old pole dancer, troubled romancer, you know

It’s a subway chancer, a question with no answer

Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows

I’ll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

And when we age shed our skin and grow

We shed our layers, spread our wings and go

My heart’s an old black panther, corrupted financer, you know

It’s a troubled romancer, a question with no answer

Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows

I’ll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows

I’ll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

Oh, now the river runs away but I chase it (yeah)

Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it (yeah)

Oh, now the river runs away but I chase it (yeah)

Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it (yeah)

Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows

I’ll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

Oh now the river runs away but I chase it

Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it

Oh now the river runs away but I chase it

Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it
