Tricky - Christiansands

 

I've meant to post this forever, but I wanted to show the original video, because it's really cool and  CHRISTIANSANDS is one of the best love song videos ever. When the trip-hop wave hit England in the nineties, Tricky was the man I listened to (OK, maybe a little Portishead too). He was the edgiest of them all. Still is, so a certain extent. I didn't get into his first single HELL IS ROUND THE CORNER, but as soon as he released CHRISTIANSANDS, I was hooked. Here it is for you.


Tricky - CHRISTIANSANDS

My defenses

Become fences

I'm stumbling

I change my face
And you think I'm fake-up
Wait around till I take off my makeup
Here we go again
I need another one
Her name is
She looks through me
Says I'm the only one

I've met a christian in christian sands, a devil in Helsinki
I've met a christian in christian sands, a devil in Helsinki

Is it getting better?
Wrote her a letter, asking questions
Maybe some deceptions
I mean we'll take it slow
I really don't know
When you talk, you make me cringe
Silver me to the messenger
Let her go don't question her

I've met a christian in christian sands, a devil in Helsinki
I've met a christian in christian sands, a devil in Helsinki

You and me, what does that mean?
Always, what does that mean?
Forever, what does that mean?
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language and in the meantime I'll create my own
By my own
