bring on the dancing horses


composer
Written by: De Freitas/McCulloch/Pattinson/Sergeant


publisher
Warner Chappell Music Ltd


background
"We felt it was really important to look at some of our completitors... or whatever you want to call it... contemporaries. And when I think of the eighties, I think of the key bands. Certainly bands that we would being playing on tour with or at the festivals."

"Bands such as, of course, U2, The Cure, Depeche Mode spring to mind. But very much also a band called Echo And The Bunnymen. Liverpool band; many great bands came from this city."

"We've chosen a song of theirs which was, I think, one of their biggest hits." - Jim




lyrics
Jimmy Brown,
Made of stone.
Charlie Clown,
No way home.
Bringing on the dancing horses,
Headless and all alone,
Shiver and say the words,
Of every lie you've heard.
First I'm gonna make it,
Then I'm gonna break it,
Till it falls apart.
Hating all the faking,
And shaking while I'm breaking,
Your brittle heart.

Billy stands,
All alone.
Sinking sand,
Skin and bone.
Bring on the dancing horses,
Wherever they may roam,
Shiver and say the words,
Of every lie you've heard.

First I'm gonna make it,
Then I'm gonna break it,
Till it falls apart.
Hating all the faking,
And shaking while I'm breaking,
Your brittle heart.

Brittle heart,
Brittle heart,
And my little heart,
Goes.

Jimmy Brown,
Made of stone.
Charlie Clown,
No way home.

First I'm gonna make it,
Then I'm gonna break it,
Till it falls apart.
Hating all the faking,
And shaking while I'm breaking,
Your brittle heart.

Bring on the new messiah,
Wherever he may roam...
Brittle heart,
Brittle heart,
And our little hearts.
Go.
