"Melody Day" as written by and Daniel Victor Snaith....
Melody day what have I done
Now our hearts are locked up tight again
And when I pray it's all begun
And when you smile it melts away again

Melody day where have you gone
All the hope I had has gone away
And what we had has come undone
And when you smile it melts away again
Bijan!

Melody day what have I done
Now our hearts are locked up tight again
And when I pray it's all begun
And when you smile it melts away again

Tell them
Tell them I always knew why
So long
So long to say goodbye
Bijan!

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs i have heard this year. The lyrics are pretty straightforward, but i think most of the meaning lies in the lush arrangement of sounds. It's about the disillusionment and disappointment that occurs after you realize a relationship is not what you originally thought it was.

    More people need to know about this awesome band.

    General Commentwhat about what he says at around the 1:09 mark? i can't make it out at all!

    i actually thought this song was less about a relationship that snaith didn't want and more about a relationship the other person didn't want with snaith.. but then, who knows.. .

    General Comment"what about what he says at around the 1:09 mark? i can't make it out at all!"

    I had to listen very closely and.. I had to repeat the song several times to draw out that text at the end. I hope it's right.. I think it's right.. ?

    General Commentok, at the risk of sounding deaf,. . it sounds as if Snaith is saying 'DJ', or something similar, around the 1:11 mark, in that chorus-y part. . .
    but, what does that mean?

    General Commenti think he's saying 'be there'
    if you watch the video of them performing this song in the pink room you can see him say it

    General CommentHe's not saying VJ or BJ or Be there, he's saying Bejae, or however it's spelt. It's the name of a girl he fancied in school and thought she had a very beautiful name, and somehow all these years later it wound up floating in the middle of the song.
    From the horse's mouth...

    General CommentDid you hear that at his Becks Festival Bar show? (Taking a guess, based on the inclusion of syd in your name, and the fact that you posted the day after the show :)
