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.

Selected Lyric

Longshore Drift

Track #04 - Twice Born Men // By: Tim Elsenburg

Lovers’ crooked little stitches
Pinch and tug the skin
And all those pillow fights and Sunday mornings
Hurt like shiny pins
And every earnest kiss departing
Leaves an exit wound
But we can patch it up with dirty pictures
And colourful balloons
