Verse: F# / D#m A cold wind blows, a cold wind blows, Through this city I call my home Well a cold wind blows, a cold wind blows, Across my face and down my throat A cold wind blows, a cold wind blows, But I’m not ready I can’t go home A cold wind blows, a cold wind blows, Like bursting bellows, fed by coal Chorus: C# B And we wear our scarves just like a noose, F# G# And we wear our skin, what to cover up the bruise F# Of the nights C# B Spent in dreamless sleep, in blacked-out ecstasy F# G# Burned blind by neon streets, that shine so bright F# C# I swear I’ve, I’ve walked these hollow streets B A hundred times

We did a kind of dance You showed me all of your steps I followed you, I followed you right to your room And in the dark You took me apart And put me back together Got me workin’ even better than I started ‘Cause I’m not afraid no more of getting’ close And I’m not afraid no more of tellin’ ya how I feel And I’m not afraid no more of going in for the kiss And I’m not afraid of how much I’m gonna miss ya when we can’t go on We played our little game You showed me all of your tricks Ya let me win, showed me to win Showed me how to breath you in And in the dark I took you apart Got to askin’ lots of questions To see what kind of connection had been started ‘Cause I’m not afraid no more of getting’ close And I’m not afraid no more of tellin’ ya how I feel And I’m not afraid no more of going in for the kiss And I’m not afraid of how much I’m gonna miss ya when we can’t go on And in the dark Ya took me apart And put me back together Got me workin’ even better than I started ‘Cause I’m not afraid no more of getting’ close And I’m not afraid no more of tellin’ ya how I feel And I’m not afraid no more of going in for the kiss And I’m not afraid of how much I’m gonna miss ya when we can’t go on

Come with me we’ll flee this city Hope aboard my sinking ship The ocean waves know no pity We’ll be ghost pirates on the midnight drift. Let’s throw rocks into the ocean, Our wallets and our purses too. If we set our hearts in motion, There ain’t nothing we can’t do. ON FRIDAY NIGHTS WE’LL BURN THIS CITY And wear skinny jeans to mask the scars NO HEIGHTS WILL EVER MAKE US DIZZY ‘Cause our peaks lie off so far, so far. WE CAN MARCH TO AN UNVOICED BANNER But who’d be there to lead the way TO BETRAY US ALL WITH LIES AND PANDER Just like the one’s in olden days. UNDERGROUND THERE’S A WHOLE NEW CITY Of philistines and bourgeois-versed WHO DRINK ALL NIGHT AND DON’T GROW WEARY Cause even Jesus Christ died of thirst I bet Jesus was a lonely sailor He kissed his betrayer on the lips But I’m a different kind of sailor, I prefer the music of your hips.

Beauty, resting, over, your head Peace and, quiet, wrapped around your shoulders and No one, ever, questions, its weight Not one, feather, out of place It’s been the longest time Oh you’re so refined Dressed for the moment Paloma! The water’s gone down Take a look around What ya gonna do now it’s up to you? Groundless boundlessness Oh you have only begun Paloma! So white, so bright in the sun It’s been a pleasant flight Oh what a delicate delight Dressed for the moment Paloma! The water’s gone down Take a look around What ya gonna do now that you are through? Groundless boundlessness Oh you have only begun Paloma! So white, so bright in the sun

I dreamt a dream of Novy Mir, A city afloat in the atmosphere, There’ll be marches and banners, there will be millions there In a Soviet Shadow there will be no more tears It is a nuclear future To clear the air Novy Mir Nyet, nyet, nyet Novy mir Nyet, nyet

I left my home For the place I was born Just as I found someone to hold on to I had no choice Even when I heard his voice calling my name Now my only hope For when I return Is one thing will still remain Take me, take me back Take me back to the place Where I find myself in your embrace.

about

The Ruffled Feathers Vancouver, British Columbia

Taking inspiration from the likes of Beirut, The Arcade Fire, and Belle and Sebastian, the band weaves fables of revolution, love stories, and cities away from home. Listeners expecting conventional guitar-driven indie-pop will find themselves swept into complex arrangements of trumpets and mandolins instead. ... more
