There's a blizzard of gulls
Travelling in the wind
Only lovers alive
Running in the dark

And I rolled away, said we never wanted much
Just a rollercoast', our love has never known the way
Sugar for the pill, you know it's just the way things are
Cannot buy the sun, this jealousy will break the whole

Cut across the sky
And move a little closer now
Lying in a bed of greed
You know I had the strangest dream

And I rolled away, said we never wanted much
Just a rollercoast', our love has never known the way
Sugar for the pill, you know it's just the way things are
Cannot buy the sun, this jealousy will break the whole

And I rolled away, said we never wanted much
Just a rollercoast', our love has never known the way
Sugar for the pill, you know it's just the way things are
Cannot buy the sun, this jealousy will break the whole

Reminds me of Guillemots - Walk The River. Nothing wrong with that, I like dreamy songs.

 
Maybe a little Moody Blues as well?
Best cut from that new album
Romantic, dreamy, visual, flowing. A new candidate for ear worm.  And good drinking music. I believe I will pour meself a Scotch from a Xmas bottle on a snowy day. 
I am obsessed with this tune!! Whole record is very good also.

Bit Stone Rosesy bass start off.  Initially sounds neat but some more listens would be great to tell the differences from Catherine Wheel.

 
Catherine Wheel = awesome
Slowdive = awesome

-> No problem there... :-)

The whole album is near perfect. 9.
You can hear Neil Halstead talking about how the song came about and was constructed here: http://songexploder.net/slowdive
Nice and dreamy.  I thought this group had disbanded - apparently they're back together.  Neil Halstead is a pretty talented guy.

Sugar for the pill - is this a birth control pill reference?

The tune is pretty chill, I like it, a 7 for now.  Thankfully, lyrics aren't my #1 priority when listening to music, otherwise this would be a 4 at best!



Yup ...... me like a lot ..8






More listens for me also...... from Connecticut.
