elbow, an obsession of sorts...

A couple of weeks ago I saw elbow live in Melbourne.



Guy Garvey. Sigh.

His lyrics leave me in wonder. And in love with language, life and my Mr Right.

[and with Guy. Just a little... Shhh]

For example...

Dear friends
You are angels and drunks

You are magi

Old friends
You stuck a pin in a map I was in
And you are the stars I navigate home by...

Dear Friends, Build a Rocket Boys! elbow 2011

You know you drive me up the wall

I need to see your face that's all
You little sod, I love your eyes

Be everything to me tonight...
