TELEVISION : ELEVATION [1977]

Ένα τραγούδι του Tom Verlaine από το κλασικό, χωρίς εισαγωγικά και υποσημειώσεις, πρώτο άλμπουμ των Television / A song by Tom Verlaine, from the classic, without quotes and footnotes, Television’s debut album.

The last word
Is the lost word
Why don’t you say so?
Say so
I sleep light
On these shores tonight
I live light on these shores
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Now you give me no trouble
And you give me no help
It is the clown
That works so well
I sleep light on these shores tonight
I live light on these shores
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Our lips are sealed our breath is burning
These cold wild seas have left us turning
But I sleep light on these shores tonight
I live light on these shores
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head
Elevation, don’t go to my head

    This reminds me of The Talking Heads.

      Certainly the rock aspect of Talking Heads, who also had a most neurotic, funky – KC & The Sunshine Band on a bad trip – side.
      Same origin [New York] same era [late ’70s], fantastic bands both!
