She lives with an orange tree
The girl that does yoga
She picks the dead ones from the ground
When we come over
And she gives
I get
Without giving anything to me

Like a morning sun
Like a morning
Like a morning sun
Good good morning sun

The girl that does yoga
When we come over
Girl that does yoga

He lives in a little house
On the side of a little hill
Picks the litter from the ground
Litter little brother spills
He gives
I get
Without giving anything to me

And the dogs they run
And the dogs they
And the dogs they run
In the good good morning sun

Side of a little hill
Litter little brother spills
Side of a little hill

Oh and she's always dressed in white
She's like an angel, man
She burns my eyes
Oh and she turns
She pulls a smile
We drive her 'round
And she drives us wild

Oh and she moves like a little girl
I become a child, man
She moves my world
And she gets splashed in rain
And turns away
And leaves me standing

She lives with an orange tree
The girl that does yoga
Got a wolf to keep her warm
When he comes over
She gives
He gets
Without giving anything to see

And the day it ends
And the day it
And the day it ends
And there's no need for me

The girl that does yoga
When we come over
The girl that does yoga

Hard to despise, did I hear a diminished/augmented chord in there somewhere???
 
Yes, hard to despise, but very easy to feel indifferent about. Nothing to set this guy apart from a dozen blandly inoffensive semi-acoustic pop acts around the turn of the millenium.

Thanks for that visual and the resulting laughter...I agree...Hey Damian, throw a J. Geils disk in and get happy!
I like it. Made me think of Tracy Chapman.

We ARE just making random comments, right?

Wayne Campbell: I mean, there are two Darren Stevens, right? Dick York and Dick Sargeant. Yeah, right, as if we wouldn't notice. Oh hold on: Dick York, Dick Sergeant, Sergeant York... Wow, that's weird.

Both albums by this guy really got to me. Give it a try.

 

this album changed my life.  it was in my player in my car for about six months straight and led me to make some major changes.  not sure how it all happened, but i know that this album was a major catalyst.  always dig hearin it.

9 X :yawn:
Woof woof! Ar-oooo! A dog of a song, all right. 3 from the Nottingham jury.
mmmmm bendy :meditate:
i don't care what anyone says about this album.. this album is awesome. A+
This album, although I've never heard it fully yet, doesn't seem nearly as strong as "O"...Although I've definitly heard better tracks off "9" than this. I still want to get the whole album either way! Did he use any opera singers on this one? She added so much to "O" I think!

+1 the girl that does yoga? WTF?
Way too precious. Where's the ipecac?
Pretty slick pickin'... and an up close, untarnished voice.

lame, totally lame
Intially, I felt this album was a little more scattered than "O" -- but as you continue to listen, its raw ferocity really hits you. Damien does not disappoint. This song is especially a highlight.
O is a 9 and 9 is a 6 :P
