I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You're a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you'll be where you should go
Someday you won't be so alone
Someday you'll be where you should go
Someday you won't be so alone

You coulda been an acrobat
You coulda used what you know
You coulda been what you wanted
You fell for them lines like snow
Press me, I'll tell you I'm looking
Looking for some sign of life
Press me, I'll tell you I'm looking

Come on, give me some spirit
Don't take too much to get me excited
Whisper, I'll listen to hear it
Just show me some sign of life
I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You're a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you'll be where you should go
Someday you won't be so alone
Someday you'll be where you should go
Someday you won't be so alone
Someday you'll be where you should go

Candyman drives a fast car
He can be there any time
His fuel is anticipation
It's good to feel wanted sometimes
All these expectations
Waiting for my cells to divide
Wait, is that too maudlin?
I'm just looking for some sign of life

I know you must hold secrets
Such a long way from home
You're a lost letter needs delivery
Someday you'll be where you should go
Someday you won't be so alone
Someday you'll be where you should go

Come on show me some spirit
Don't take too much to get me excited
Whisper, I'll listen to hear it
Just show me some sign of life

So into Spoon right now, and agree with previous comments about them being the best of what's out there right now. Saw them in Phoenix a month or two ago and they put on a great show. Only wish they played longer (they toured with The Shins). Radio Paradise, more Spoon!
Extremely psyched.

Spoon is headlining the Gasparilla Music Festival in March in Tampa.  https://www.facebook.com/gasparillamusicfestival/
Every time I hear this, I am astounded at the creative virtuosity of Spoon! They are one of the best acts of Modern Music. Thanks, RP!
Very Cool
This is a fantastic album.
{#Cowboy} zesty !
At 1st I was like "oh no, another bad popular synth drag", at the beginning of the song.
But after a few listening it shod it's "bad synth drag" on me and I like it. {#Biggrin}
It IS Spoon after all {#Good-vibes}
Really like the changes

Nice to hear from them
The title of the song on the album is WhisperI'lllistentohearit
Sounds very" The The" to me .... Not a bad thing , especially the intro

Lots of deja-entendues - but still unique! Hats off!

On my 2nd listening right now I'm going 6 to 7 on my rating, probably because I've grown to like Spoon so much since starting to listen to RP a lot again in the last few months (i.e. BillG you seem to like yourself some Spoon) - something about how all the bits and pieces of the music are put together, the beats, the bridge, all of it melds together well and I like. 

*EDIT* After a couple of months, and having purchased this CD, I've bumped my rating to an 8.  And I love how the tambourines sound on this song.  Overall the entire record gets a 7.5 from me. 


Very cool.  I look forward to checking out the whole album.
9...and the whole album is fab. too
