Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls”

“Pretty Girls”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

The green mermaid
And the wavy mane
The California dream
Riding a unicorn through your Dalí
The free fantasy
The care free
That beginners luck
The sugar don’t live up
Sailing on a banana peel
Your trophy
Start throwing up a boat to bar

You magnify the universe
Grab your purse
Grab your luck
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
You’re aiming the royal scene
Fast luck
TV dreams
Pretty girl, don’t get struck

So, Bubble Hills
Don’t you ever burst?
Never let her down
Tossing out time
While you drag your crumbs
The birds ate their round
Hawaiian drinks in a famous face
You pose innocent
Those new lashes don’t go to waste
But it could pay your rent
You magnify the universe
Grab your purse
Grab your luck
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
You’re aiming the royal team
Fast luck
TV dreams
Pretty girl, don’t get struck
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
Pretty girl, don’t get struck
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Mirror”

“Mirror”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

You know you’re makin’ me mad
The way you look at me so
Kinda making me scared
Throwin’ me those eyes of scarlet
Though when I pass by
You got nothin’ to say
Not even a-
Oh, and it breaks my heart
Like friends in a picture glass
We capture some moments
Now I don’t recognise you
Did you lose your playful mood?
This bad attitude
Too bad
It’s too bad
It’s too bad
See how you’re makin’ me blue?
You know you’re better than that
Staring at me
Playing the fool
You must have lost your mind!
See when you pass me by
You ain’t got nothin’ to say
How can you forget to smile
It breaks my heart
I’mma climb up these clouds
And see things clear
You’re gonna make me put my fist through this mirror
I’m so sick and tired of lookin’ in this mirror
See how you’re makin’ me blue?

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Klapp Klapp”

“Klapp Klapp”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

Corridor lines with the river
Run watery eyes
I stand there waitin’ for my turn
Determined to rise
The spirits blow around like a hurricane whip
The girls who melt like my ice-cream drip

Somebody from his head said
You can turn off and feel better
When everything’s clear like cold weather
Go feel better, feel better
Somebody from my heart said
I could turn off and never wake up
And everything’s clear, my breath feels like steam fade
Feel better
Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Finally they call my name
The ghost inside, come wake us to life
Makin’ my chair do flips
Yet givin’ into this will be saving me time
Fallin’ through the floor on my broken butterfly wing
Gimme me one more, the girl from the corridor sing, she sing
I hear you want it, don’t you?
I know you want it, don’t you? Don’t you?
I see you want it, don’t you?
I know you want it, don’t you? Don’t you?
Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart
Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Somebody from his head said
You can turn off and feel better
When everything’s clear like cold weather
Go feel better, feel better
Somebody from my heart said
I could turn off and never wake up
And everything’s clear, my breath feels like steam fade
Feel better
Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you? Do you? (She says) Do you? Do you?

Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you want it? Do you? Do you? Do you? (She says)

Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart
Fallin’ apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Wink”

Your head aches and you’ve had no rest
This days been one long test
Years pass too fast
Have to stop
Like an angel she appears
Created out of air
And all you troubles all your fears
Like blown away

‘Cause she winks at you
You feel your legs shake
You blow a kiss back
Then time stops until she turns her back

A swarm of heads turn around
And cross the street, oh
Waves of electricity
You feel the heat
You start walking fast
And blindly you’re like an ant in a stack
And years pass too fast
Yet in your dreams, you know

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Turn Left”

Once I thought I knew where I came from
Now fogging up a blur I can’t recall
How many times have I been here before?
Could this be my birth town?

Now as I am searching for a soul
Crossing country looking for a real job
Nothing seems to suit me, no
Guess I’ll keep doing what I did before

Walking down the stairs
Anonymous detached
On the corner
I turn, I turn left

Looking out at the waves
I could stand here for ten more days
Crushing stones with my toes
That woman looking at me
Could she be my relative, oh
Would she be my best friend, oh
Wonder if she’s seen me here before

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Stormy Weather”

Imagining all the drama like a film
It runs in my mind all the hard times how it turns
Imagining you there thinking of your future
And of your past and new walls painted
Your eyes look low
And the ticking of the clocks too slow

Seasons stormy weather
When it ends
We will stay warm together

No distance can separate
Imagine us combined
Light up the room electrify
Our love could be so divine
We’ll make rainbows at night
And when it’s dark we’ll be light
We’ll be light

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Scribbled Paper”

‘Cause I went looking for a trace of something that you left
And when I saw dried paint and your scribbled initials
I acted like I could care less while my thumb press to the paper
I wanted to find your portrait, wanted to have it

Recalling a piercing voice in old dreams
And ghostly images of black trains
Now seeing every page is turned away
I wanted to own your portrait
Wanted to have it

You and your scribbled paper makes me shiver so
You and your scribbled paper makes me shiver so

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “Place To Belong”

I’m running late again
The booth is dim
And it is cold and me I’ll miss this place
I’m in a sentimental state
While running late
Trams forget to stop
And everything’s in boxes packed up
Stamp to go, but who knows
So I’m running away
Running too late, running to stay
Maybe I’ll stumble upon a magic wand
A treasure, a rocket, a place to belong
A place to belong
Soon the street lights
An orange glow the cab speeding
As I go so long a quick goodbye
Before I change my mind
So long a quick goodbye
Before I change my mind
So long goodbye

Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “No Love”

No sympathy really here
All the sweetness is left somewhere
On some street miles from where we seem to be
No love, no love

No compassion really here
Even the reason why we met
Has vanished in the air
You keep talking as I sit and glare
Just can’t understand how it disappeared, no

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

So I sit and wait ’til it appears
Hopefully someday soon
Hopefully before next year
I just sit and I glare
It’s a mystery how it vanished
How it left me here

Oh, my heart so bare
Nothing left to share
Oh, where did it go
Withered away
Give me love that will stay

No love in this room
No love left in here
No love in my soul left for you

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

No love in this room
No love left in here
No love in my soul left for you
