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

  1. Are you sure it’s not “Somebody from his head said” rather than “Somebody found us dancing”? The former makes sense given the next line, and I think this is more apparent when you hear the Swindle Remix.

  2. the lyrics for klapp klapp and the entire album are so wonderful. both yukimi and the band are rising up into another level of creation with this new album. a black grit irritating its host to form pearls of splendor. however, i suspect another band member will be present soon = “yellow sun shining rain for everyone”
    a big shout out to the swedes with the velvet glove—-thebridgewalker
