"1000 Times" as written by and Ian Thomas/blackburn Ball....
Nightfall follows the day
You fight with me
Fill me with patience
I was so brave once
You rescued me
Got in my way

A thousand times
Dumbfounded lies
In tidy lines
Let blood flood the town

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell
A bedside story of

We've heard it before
Unsettled sleep
When will it all stop?
I hear a pin drop
You've answered me
Loud and clear

So know your fate
The time and date
We escalate
We fall on holy ground

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell
A bedside story of

I'm here
Leave me to wait near
You recognise me
Get in my way, dear
The price to pay, dear
You'll recognise me
I'll be laying

Where your golden light
Where your golden light

A thousand times
In tidy lines
Let blood flood the town

Thoughts that dwell
On how we fell
That time will tell
A bedside story of

    General CommentOk here is the deal: I am a huge Gomez fan, but alas I am alone in the world in that regard. So my mission: comment on every Gomez song that I've heard of in order to help share the experience of the pure joy that is Gomez. A lofty goal yes, but I am up for the challenge. Download a few of these songs then go buy an album!!!

    General CommentOk... here I go... This is song is in the slow, smoky category of Gomez songs. It hilights Ben Ottewell's bluesy vocals that are really unique in music today and it's his vocals are what makes this song great.

    It's a classic tale of breaking up with his girl, which is a theme often visited by the boys. I like the first verse about how he liked her from the start because she rescued him by getting in his way, which I take to mean that despite their fighting, she got him out of his routines, which is good.
    The rest of the song seems to be about how he feels that for good or bad, it's over between them and we'll see if it was the right decision or not in time, and it'll be like a bedtime story... that is so cool. "A 1000 times, in tidy lines, Let blood flood the town" is a little scary. It brings up imagery of the lines of somenone getting cut, but the tidy lines could be the 1000 times they hurt each other with lies and fights, and he's tired of it and they should let themselves bleed out their wounds in forgiveness and move on. Good stuff.

    General CommentYeah, it's all about long time scales. The relationship was long term... The amount of time it will take for him to be suffering from the "wounds" (mental and physical). Very emotive stuff.
