Blur's Albums and Lyrics

13

Release Date:15/03/1999

Marking their ten years as a band, “13″ is the sound of Blur becoming, according to Damon, “completely free”. The album was created from lengthy improvisations around song structures, recorded and painstakingly edited by producer William Orbit. Lyrically, the songs are rooted in personal and emotional changes, most notably on two of the singles – “Tender” & the heartbreaking “No Distance Left To Run”. The album also sees song writing contributions by Graham Coxon, most notably on “Coffee & TV” where the guitarist takes lead vocal duties.

Pour fêter leurs dix ans en tant que groupe, "13" est le son de Blur, selon Damon, devenant "totalement libre". L'album a été créé à partir de longues improvisations autour de structures de chansons, enregistrées et soigneusement éditées par le producteur William Orbit. Les Paroles des chansons sont ancrées dans les changements personnels et émotionnels, notamment sur deux des célibataires - "Tender" et la déchirante "No Distance Left To Run". L'album voit également des contributions d'écriture de chanson de Graham Coxon, notamment sur "Coffee & TV", où le guitariste est le principal chanteur.

  • Tender

Tender is the night
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is the day
The demons go away
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on, Come on, Come on
Get through it
Come on, Come on, Come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on, Come on, Come on
Get through it
Come on, Come on, Come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm Waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

Tender is the ghost
The ghost I love the most
Hiding from the sun
Waiting for the night to come
Tender is my heart
I'm screwing up my life
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on, Come on, Come on
Get through it
Come on, Come on, Come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on, Come on, Come on
Get through it
Come on, Come on, Come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm Waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby

  • Bugman

I am an ex offender
They let me out in the summer
I think I was in a coma
I didn't know what to do
Oh no

You go hang around go round
I'll watch myself hang on
Look out for the Bugman
You go hang around around
I'll watch myself hang on
Look out for the Bugman

I got no sent of existence
I know the nodding dogs
I go out in the city
I stay away from the bugs
Oh yeah

You go hang around around
I watch myself hang on
Look out for the Bugman
You go hang around around
I watch myself hang on
Look out for the Bugman

The bu uh uh ug man

I go out in the city
I stay away from the bugs
Oh yeah
na na na na na oh oh...

I go out in the city

  • Coffee & TV

Do you feel like a chain store?
Practically floored
One of many zeros
Kicked around bored
Your ears are full but you're empty
Holding out your heart
To people who never really
Care how you are

So give me Coffee and TV
History
I've seen so much
I'm goin' blind
And I'm brain-dead virtually
Sociability
It's hard enough for me
Take me away from this big bad world
And agree to marry me
So we can start over again

Do you go to the country
It isn't very far
There's people there who will hurt you
'Cause of who you are

Your ears are full of the language
There's wisdom there you're sure
'Til the words start slurring
And you can't find the door

So give me Coffee and TV
History
I've seen so much
I'm goin' blind
And I'm brain-dead virtually
Sociability
It's hard enough for me
Take me away from this big bad world
And agree to marry me
So we can start over again

So give me Coffee and TV
History
I've seen so much
I'm goin' blind
And I'm brain-dead virtually
Sociability
It's hard enough for me
Take me away from this big bad world
And agree to marry me
So we can start over again

Oh...we could start over again
Oh...we could start over again
Oh...we could start over again
Oh...we could start over again

  • Swamp Song

Give me good times
Give me sali-va
Give me fever
I'm a believer

Give me insane
Give me space brain
Give me music Give me love
Abandon us in love

Gimme good times
There no joke rhymes
Gimme easy breathing
Give me everything
Everything, Everything

WAKAH-WAKAH

Gimme good times
And give me sali-va
Give me fever
I'm a believer

Give me insane
Gimme space brain
Don't leave me ever
We'll live forever
Yes we will - I know we will

Gimme good times
Give me sali-va
Give me fever
I'm a believer

Give me insane
Gimme space brain
Don't leave me ever
We'll live forever
Yes we will, I know we will

Stick it in my veins
Stick it my veins
Stick it in my veins

La la la la la la la la (cntd)

  • 1992

Going into business
An agreement of your bombast
You'd love my bed
You took the other instead
But don't you feel low
I was being oblique
And you'd love my bed
You got the other instead

What do you owe me?
The price of your piece of mind
You'd love my bed
You took the other instead

  • B.L.U.R.E.M.I.

Group using the loop
Of another pop group
Group shooting the hoop
And starving it up into the soup
'cause I'm of regular features
And Adidas trainers
Completing the cycle
Teenage maniacs
Will bring it all back

B.L.U.R.E.M.I.

Group using the loop
Of another pop group
Completing the cycle
Until the teenage maniacs
Will bring it all back

B.L.U.R.E.M.I.

  • Battle

Battle, battle, battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who
Battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who

Completion search
Here I love the bow
See it all come down to

Adorn myself
It's a new song glory
Doesn't seem, what you think of now

Battle, battle, battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who
Battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who

You turn you sights
Kill until sub zero
See, oh, it turns you out

All my awe
It's the end of your
To take your last one now

Battle, battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who
Battle, battle, battle, battle

Battle someone, who
Battle, battle, battle, battle
Battle someone, who

Keep sounds
Keep love about
See me overcome

  • Mellow Song

I left my street
I'm a guillotine
Pulling away
In my machine,
Where have I been, now?
Not you

Shooting stars in my left arm
An alcohol low
Giving away time to Casio
Sun is slow
I got soul

Is this where I'm going to
We'll see
We'll see
We'll see

I kill this sleep
I'm the man in the moon
Walking on sand on my home high noon
In love with the moon, love you

Cos I lift my Street
I'm a guillotine
Pull it away
In my machine
Forget where I've been before
Forget you

Is this where I'm going to
We'll see
We'll see
We'll see

I'm a country boy I got no Soul
Don't sleep at night, the worlds growing old
I lost my girl to the Rolling Stones
I lost my girl to the Rolling Stones

Don't sleep at night, the worlds growing old

Sleep at night, the worlds growing old
I lost my girl to the Rolling Stones

  • Caramel

I've gotta get over

I've got to get better
Will love you forever
I've gotta find genius
I've gotta get better
I've gotta stop smoking

Caramel Caramel...

Where is the magic?
I've gotta get better
Oh lord give me magic
I'll love you forever
I've gotta find mounts hill
And live by the mountains
I'll love you forever
You are...And you are...

  • Trimm Trabb

I got no style
I'll take my time
All those losers on the piss again
I dose dose away

That's just the way it is
That's just the way it is

I've got trimm trabb
Like the flash boys have
And I can't go back
Let it flow, let it flow
I sleep alone
I sleep alone

That's just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
Just the way it is
That's just the way it is

I got trimm trabb
Like the flash boys have
And I can't go back
Let it flow, let it flow
I sleep alone
I sleep alone

  • No Distance Left to Run

It's over
You don't need to tell me
I hope you're with someone who makes you
feel safe in your sleeping tonight
I won't kill myself, trying to stay in your life
I got no distance left to run

When you see me
Please turn your back and walk away
I don't want to see you
Cos i know the dreams that you keep is wearing me
When your coming down, think of me here
I got no distance left to run

It's over, I knew it would end this way
I hope you're with someone who makes you feel
That this life is the night
And it settles down, stays around
Spends more time with you
I got no distance left to run
