Track Name: Being boring
BEING BORING ( TENNANT/LOWE) LYRICS

I came across a cache of old photos
and invitations to teenage parties.
“Dress in white,” one said with quotations
from someone’s wife, a famous writer
in the nineteen-twenties.

When you’re young you find inspiration
in anyone who’s ever gone
and opened up a closing door.
She said we were never feeling bored.

‘Cause we were never being boring,
we had too much time to find for ourselves.
And we were never being boring,
we dressed up and fought, then thought “make amends.”
And we were never holding back, or worried that
time would come to an end.


When I went, I left from the station
with a haversack and some trepidation.
Someone said “If you’re not careful,
you’ll have nothing left and nothing to care for
in the nineteen-seventies.”

But I sat back, and looking forward,
my shoes were high, and I had scored.
I’d bolted through a closing door,
and I would never find myself feeling bored.

‘Cause we were never being boring,
we had too much time to find for ourselves.
And we were never being boring,
we dressed up and fought, then thought “make amends.”
And we were never holding back, or worried that
time would come to an end.
We were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend.


Now I sit with different faces
in rented rooms and foreign places.
All the people I was kissing,
some are here and some are missing
in the nineteen-nineties.

I never dreamt that I would get to be
the creature that I always meant to be.
But I thought, in spite of dreams,
you’d be sitting somewhere here with me.

‘Cause we were never being boring,
we had too much time to find for ourselves.
And we were never being boring,
we dressed up and fought, then thought “make amends.”
And we were never holding back, or worried that
time would come to an end.
We were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend.

‘Cause we were never being boring,
we had too much time to find for ourselves.
And we were never being boring,
we dressed up and fought, then thought “make amends.”
And we were never being boring,
we were never being bored,
‘cause we were never being boring,
we were never being bored.


Encontré una caja con fotos viejas
E invitaciones para fiestas de quinceañeros
“vestido de blanco” dice una entre comillas
de la esposa de alguien, un famoso escritor
en los años veinte

cuando tú eras joven encontrabas inspiración
en cualquiera que jamás se fue
y abrió una puerta cerrada
ella dijo que nunca nos sentimos aburridos

porque nunca estabamos aburridos
teníamos mucho tiempo para cuidar de nosotros mismos
y nunca estabamos aburridos
nos poníamos vestidos y peleábamos
y después nos arrepentíamos
nada nos paraba o preocupaba
estos momentos tendrían un final


cuando me fuí, me marché de la estación
con una mochila y algunas turbaciones
alguien dijo que si no tienes cuidado
no te quedará nada y nada por lo que preocuparte
en los años setenta
pero me senté

y esperando que mis zapatos estuvieran en alto
y lo hubiera conseguido
me escapé a través de una puerta cerrada
y nunca me encontraría aburrido

porque nunca estabamos aburridos
teníamos mucho tiempo para cuidar de nosotros mismos
y nunca estabamos aburridos
nos poníamos vestidos y peleábamos
y después nos arrepentíamos
nada nos paraba o preocupaba
estos momentos tendrían un final
siempre estabamos esperanzados en esto, recuerdo
tú siempre podías confiar en un amigo


ahora me siento con rostros diferentes
en habitaciones alquiladas por el extranjero
toda la gente que acostumbraba a besar
algunos están aquí
aotros perdidos
en los años noventa

nunca soñé que tendría que ser
la criatura que siempre supuse ser
pero pienso que a pesar de los sueños,
tú estarías sentada por aquí, en algún sitio

porque nunca estabamos aburridos
teníamos mucho tiempo para cuidar de nosotros mismos
y nunca estabamos aburridos
nos poníamos vestidos y peleábamos
y después nos arrepentíamos
nada nos paraba o preocupaba
estos momentos tendrían un final
siempre estabamos esperanzados en esto, recuerdo
tú siempre podías confiar en un amigo

porque nunca estabamos aburridos
nunca estabamos aburridos
nunca estabamos aburridos
nunca estabamos aburridos
Track Name: Take care
TAKE CARE ( Alex Chilton)
Take care not to hurt yourself
Beware of the need for help
You might need too much
And people are such
Take care, please, take care

Some people read idea books
And some people have pretty looks
But if your eyes are wide
And all words aside
Take care, please, take care

This sounds a bit like goodbye
In a way it is I guess
As I leave your side
Ive taken the air
Take care, please, take care
Take care, please, take care
