Selected Lyrics

The vast majority of Sylvian lyrics can be found at and slowfire. I'll generally only transcribe newly released songs that aren't up elsewhere (or ones that contain interesting background samples or vocals) and live versions of unreleased songs.

Black Flag

Track #08 - We Just Did What Happened And No One Came // By: Tim Elsenburg

Felt the pull of something missed
A hurt for every mile
Words so black they stain my lips
So white they burned my eyes

And I know that I can’t take it back now
Send arms to encircle
Face you for sleeping
Oh carry me over

I brought you here to see the snow
Where tracks get covered up
Cause purpose slips away so quick
When hope ain’t quite enough
