Perfecte uitvoering

Phoenix horen we meestal als dansbaar Frans hip bandje. Op It’s never been like that stond echter een verrassend mellow nummer: One Time Too Many. En nu, na het verschijnen van Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix mogen we dan de perfecte versie aanhoren. Het is lang geleden dat ik zo’n mooie akoestische versie van welk nummer dan ook heb gehoord.

Quiet please, turn it off, shut it down
Slow down your tan, I’m gonna miss you a lot
There it goes… Your tears again… This is no fun…
There it goes… Your tears again… As you walk away…
Then it’s hard to tell what kind, they do look alike

Oh no that ain’t what I said
Oh no that ain’t what I said

Always trying to fall asleep to make my way out Looking at the ceiling, I’m counting the days There it goes… Your man is down to the bottom…
There it goes… Your man is willing to cooperate…
Then it’s hard to tell you kindly that ain’t what I’m like

Guess I’d better find us a way out
“One time too many” I said
It’s a long way to look alike
That is what you say

Slow down your tan. I’m gonna miss you a lot
There it goes… Your ID’s been stolen…
They wave their hands goodbye… As you walk away…
Then it’s hard to tell who’s kind, they do look alike

Oh no that ain’t what I said
Oh no that ain’t what I said

Guess I’d better find us a way out
“One time too many” I said
It’s a long way to look alike
That is what you say
