Moulettes Lyrics

This video was posted on some lovely blog that I can't quite remember which at the moment, and got me hooked onto the band, Moulettes. It really is an enchanting band that I'd highly recommend, one of my current favorites. However, looking around I noticed quickly that it is extremely hard to dig up lyrics for their songs. (This song "Devil of Mine" excluded.)

I was surprised as I had imagined people would be all over working out the lyrics of such pretty songs. I find lyrics just as if not more important than the chords. I definitely think that they both have to be good to feed off of each other and create a great song, so its something my ear pays attention to and something I look up. I caught myself thinking, "Someone should really sit down and listen to the songs and try to piece out lyrics" And then I found myself thinking, "Someone should stop wishing others would do things she can do herself."

I would love for the band and songwriter(s) themselves to post lyrics someday, because by ear there will always be some mistakes, somethings lost, but I thought until then I could give it a go and share them for anyone else who has been searching for the lyrics as I have. The first one I did was "Horses for Hearses" (fitting, don't you think?) which is an easier song to listen to and jot down words in my opinion. (And short). I swear I ran across these somewhere else, but I can't redig them up. I'm not claiming these are perfect. I transcribed from their album, but I could only find a live video.

Horses for Hearses:

When you look around you I assure you I will be there
Shouting like the curses, this is the worst thing we’ll have to bare
Loneliness lives in corners, she is carted by despair
She is spooked by sudden noises. She is haunted on the stair
Sing me handsome verses, raise you voices, play your share
Hold on to the horses and good fortune meet your prayer
Bring her milk and honey, bathe her wounds and stroke her hair
Hush my little darling, lull your worries, have no care,
Spurn your shadowed lover, all is rusted beyond repair
You shall find your kingdom and a set of wings to wear!
(Dun, dun, dada da, dun, dun, dada da, dun…)
Sing me handsome verses, raises your voices, play you share
Shouting like the curses this is the worst thing we’ll have to bare (x2)

If you find all the lyrics posted somewhere, please I'd love the link. Also feel free to post any corrections if your ear is better than mine.

  1. This is great; thanks for this! I've been wondering myself if I should try working out the lyrics for this band, because I can't find them anywhere!
