lyrics

Bodies on the arc.

Am Dm
You said hey, I said hello
E Am
You said I wish you didn’t have to go
Dm E
I know I know to stay with you would only cause us harm
Am
To stay a little longer
Dm E Am Dm
We would pay the price to place our bodies on the arc
E Am Dm
Because we know so well the characters here in the dark

Is it wrong, is it wrong
E Am
Oh come on, come on, come on, oh come on

E D A
It’s strangely cold when were in bed
B7 E
And it will be tomorrow
D A B7
Just one more night is what you said to belong to you
C# D A B7 E
You don’t have to look to tell we don’t play it very well
Am Dm E Am
We fell in love in this life and all our beauty was a knife
Dm E
I cut the left side you cut the right
Am
And then we both embraced and bled out in the night
Dm E Am Dm
We paid the price and placed our bodies where we pleased
E Am Dm
As characters in the dark we chose to die down on our knees

Is it wrong, is it wrong
E Am
Oh come on, come on, come on, oh come on

about

Joel Magid Portland, Oregon

Joel Magid's new album Hyenas is an absorbing collection of psych-pop and homegrown melody, with echoes of the phantasmagoric '60s, and a slice of punk-rock DIY-ness for good measure. "Snakes, I Love You" is one of the album's more upbeat numbers, a grimy but catchy slice of basement-prom pop. It's one of Hyenas' many highlights. -Ned Lannamann
