José González Deadweight On Velveteen

Deadweight on velveteen

It’s retained emptiness

It’s not what it seems

Uncover the mystery

Tell everyone what you see

It’s not what it seems

Vulgar when brought to light

Betray the image

There’s nothing between the sheets

It’s not what it seems

But deadweight on velveteen

Vulgar when brought to light

Vulgar the lie

José González Fold

Taking time

To walk down all the aisles

Turning over every stone

Building new rulers but still haven’t burnt any old

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

Keep both feet on a ground

While I change the wings

I promise one day I’ll be coming around

From my cloud to see what it’s all about

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

Please hold me back

If I tend to lose it and steer into old tracks

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

José González #9 Dream

So long ago

Wasn’t a dream

Wasn’t just a dream

I know, yes, I know

It seems so very real

It seems so real to me

To walk down the street

Through the acres of dreams

I thought I could hear

Hear, hear, hear

Someone call out my name

As it started to rain

To stand still seemed to strange

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Dream, dream away

Magic in the air

It’s magic in the air now

I believe, yes, I believe

All I cannot say

What more can I say

On the river of sound

Through we go round and round

I thought if you

Feel, feel, feel

Music touching my soul

Something wants, I call

Spent time once I fall

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

You sing out to me in sorrow

Something on the side

Screaming was the calling

Someone call out my name

As it started to rain

To stand still seemed to strange

José González Broken Arrows

Broken arrows along the shore

Seems you intended to come back for more

It was summerlove leave this town

It’s too cold to bathe and the leaves are brown

Summerlove left this town

It was too cold to bathe and the leaves turned brown

The sun went down

And with it the love we found

That’s the way things are sometimes

Most of the time

José González All You Deliver

On the verge of ruin

You’ll see it all clear

How steep the fall is

How long the way back is

On the verge of success

It’s all white and fluffy

Horizons are blurred

By the time you reach your goal

Tongues will be twisted

To the point where you’ll lose track of your soul

Distorted pictures is all you deliver

José González Hints

While the crowd is waiting for the final kiss

The one which allows them to sleep well

We’ll walk along our own path

The one which will lead us to our own bless

But we need hints before we get tired

We need speed before we lose pace

We need a hint to know we’re on the right track
