Portishead "Third" lyrics





Официальной лирики пока, конечно, нет. Это транскрипты.
(?) - места, по поводу которых не уверен
Version 3.0.

01
Silence


(Esteja alerta para as regras dos três
O que você dá, retornará para você
Essa lição, você tem que aprender
Você só ganha o que você merece)

Tempted in our minds
Tormented inside lie
Wounded and afraid
Inside my head
Falling through changes

Did you know when you lost?
Did you know when I wanted?
Did you know what I lost?
Do you know what I wanted?

Empty in our hearts
Crying out in silence
Wandered out of reach
Too far to speak
Drifting unable

Did you know when you lost?
Did you know when I wanted?
Did you know what I lost?
Do you know what I wanted?

02
Hunter


No one said
We'd even known each other
And new evidence
Is what we require
In this world

I stand on the edge of a broken sky
And I'm looking down, don't know why
And if I should fall, would you hold me?
Would you pass me by?
Oh, you know I'd ask you for nothing
Just to wait for a while

So confused
My thoughts are taken over
Unwanted horizons face me instead
Won't let go

I stand on the edge of a broken sky
And I'm looking down, don't know why
And if I should fall, would you hold me?
Would you pass me by?
Oh, you know I'd ask you for nothing
Just to wait for a while

03
Nylon Smile


I'd like to laugh at what you said
But I just can't find a smile
I wonder why I can't
I struggle with myself
Hoping I might change a little
Hoping that I might be someone I wanna be

Looking out I wanna know someone might care
Looking out I want a reason to be there
'Cause I don't know what I've done to deserve you
And I don't know what I'd do without you

Looking out I wanna know some way might clear
Looking out I want a reason to repair
'Cause I don't know what I've done to deserve you
And I don't know what I'd do without you

I can't see nothing good
Nothing is so bad
I never had the chance
To explain exactly what I meant

04
The Rip


As she walks in the room
Centered and torn / Scented and tall (?)
Hesitating once more
And as I take on myself
And the bitterness I felt
Realize that love lost

Wild white horses, they will take me away
And the tenderness I feel
Will send the dark underneath
Will I follow?

Through the glory of life
I was scattered on the floor
Disappointed and sore
And in my thoughts I have bled
From the riddles I've been fed
Another light moves over

Wild white horses, they will take me away
And the tenderness I feel
Will send the dark underneath
Will I follow?

05
Plastic


I wonder why
I don't know what you see
Of course I care
I won't pretend
It's just a thorn
I'd said enough

Don't you know life turns me
Always wants me
I can hardly pray (?)

I could try
But don't know what you hear
'Cause in my heart
You are so clear
It's just a thorn
I'd said enough

Don't you know life turns me
Always wants me
I can hardly pray (?)

On your stage
A show that you create
All by yourself
I am nowhere
You never noticed
You were so sure

Don't you know life turns me
Always wants me
I can hardly pray (?)

06
We Carry On


The taste of life I can't describe
It's choking up my mind
I'm reaching out
I can't believe
The faith it can't decide

On and on I carry on
But underneath my mind
And on and on I tell myself
It's this I can't disguise

Oh can't you see
Holding on to my heart I bleed
The taste of life

The pace, the time, I can't survive
It's grinding down the view
Breaking out
Which way to choose
A choice I can't renew

On and on I carry on
But underneath my mind
And on and on I tell myself
It's this I can't disguise

Oh can't you see
Holding on to my heart I bleed
No place is safe
Can't you see the taste of life

07
Deep Water


I'm drifting in deep waters
Alone with my self-doubting again
Try not to struggle this time
For I will weather the storm

I gotta remember (gonna)
Don't fight it (don't fight it)
Even if I (even if I)
Don't like it (don't like it)
Somehow, turn me around
(Somehow, turn me around)

No matter how far I drift
Deep waters (deep waters)
Won't scare me tonight.

08
Machine Gun


I saw a savior
A savior come my way
I thought I'd see it
In the cold light of day
But now I realize that I'm
Only for me

If only I could see
Return myself to me
And recognize the poison in my heart
There is no other place
No one else I face
The remedy will agree with how I feel

Here in my reflecting
What more can I say
For I am guilty
For the voice that I obey
Too scared to sacrifice a choice
Chosen for me

If only I could see
Return myself to me
And recognize the poison in my heart
There is no other place
No one else I face
The remedy to agree with how I feel

09
Small


If I remember the night that we met
Tasted a wine that I'll never forget
Opened the doorway and saw through the light
Motions of movement an I felt delight

She spoke of freedom, "the way in" she said
"The wisdom that took me away from the bed"
Spoke of a glory that we had become
I felt forgiven in all I've become

Small, tasteless and flawed
Hoping to see, blinded like me
You tried to understand
But you're just a man
Hoping/Open to score just like me (?)

Thrill, you were again,
Tried to pretend who you were then
Who you are now

Hating the Lord (Hating the Lord) (?)
Hating the Lord (Hating the Lord) (?)

Magic Doors


I can't deny what I've become
I'm just emotionally undone
I can't deny I can be someone else
When I have tried to find the words
To describe this sense absurd
Try to resist my thoughts but I can't lie

I'm losing myself
My desire I can't hide/have (?)
No reason am I for (?)

I can't divide or hide from me
I don't know who I'm meant to be
I guess it's just the person that I am
Often I've dreamt that I don't wait
Enjoy the gift of my mistake
Like then again I'm wrong and I confess

I'm losing myself
My desire I can't hide/have (?)
No reason am I for (?)

Better if I could find the words to say
Whenever I take a choice it turns away

I'm all tired of my mind (?)
I'm all thinking of why (?)

I'm always so unsure

I battle my thoughts I find I can't explain
I've traveled so far, but somehow feel the same

I'm all tired of my mind (?)
And more I'm thinking of why (?)

I'm always so unsure
I'm always so unsure

I'm all tired of my mind (?)
And more I'm thinking of why (?)

I'm always so unsure
I'm always so unsure

I am alive when I sleep
Why am I not in all that I got?
I can't find no one to blame

Stand, stand, damned one
Damned one
Damned one
Damned one

I am one
Damned
One

Where do I go?
