Inara George

Monday 20 June, 2011 at 7:30 am

Inara George is mostly known (well… relatively known) for being the feminine half of a duo called ‘The Bird And The Bee’. In case you’re wondering- Inara is the bird and a guy called Greg Kurstin is the bee. Sort of makes sense in a facts of life sort of way. Anyway… ‘The Bird And The Bee’ came up as a possible feature when some gorgeous songs by Inara pushed them aside. Long story short- the bee will have to wait for another opportunity. Sorry, bee. Here’s the bird with two lovely tunes:

Accidental

Play

Lyrics

All the words sound so accidental
Rise and fall like an old balloon.
Oh, my words and my marble-heavy mind
Wasting time.

All wasted on instructions
For you to carry me around
You pay me attentions
Then wave me off with a good bye

When you speak to me
I speak too pleasantly.
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Run away like I’m some holiday.
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Am I a saint or a liar?
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Where’s the knife?

I won’t question your opinions.
I can’t even disagree.
You touch on all my troubles
Expecting nothing more from me.

I am eager for your answer.
It’s just like some baby bird;
My mouth is so wide open
For what you think you might have heard.

When you speak to me
I speak too pleasantly.
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Run away like I’m some holiday.
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Am I a saint or a liar?
Where’s the knife? Where’s the fire?
Where’s the knife?

We rarely feature covers but this one is a million times better than the original (Joe Jackson).

Lyrics

Fools in love
Are there any other kinds of lovers?
Fools in love
Is there any other kind of pain?

Everything you do, everywhere you go now
Everything you touch, everything you feel
Everything you see, everything you know now
Everything you do, you do it for your baby love, your baby love, your baby love, your baby love

Fools in love
Are there any creatures more pathetic?
Fools in love
Never knowing when they’ve lost again

Everything you do, everywhere you go now
Everything you touch, everything you feel
Everything you see, everything you know now
Everything you do, you do it for your baby love, your baby love, your baby love, your baby love

Fools in love they think they’re heroes because they get to feel no pain
I say fools in love are zeros
I should know, I should know because this fool’s in love again

Fools in love
Gently hold each other’s hands forever
Fools in love
Gently tear each others limb from limb

Everything you do, everywhere you go now
Everything you touch, everything you feel
Everything you do, even rock alone now
Nothing mean a thing except you and your baby love, your baby love, your baby love, your baby love

Fools in love they think they’re heroes
Because they get to feel no pain
I say fools in love are zeros,
I should know, I should know because this fool’s in love again.
