"You Came to Me" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
Invite your sister
Into the garden
All cannot play
Fist full of wild flowers
Hand picked by someone
Who nearly fell

(Ah, ah)

Friend foe or feather
If we roll together
Give my gift to you
In all kinds of weather
If not now not ever
Please do not go

Hands over your eyes
Recalling your size
Is it the right time
For the game we play
In all kinds of weather
If not now not ever
This is the right time
For a holiday

(La, la, la, la)

You came to me
In my dreams
And you spoke of everything
Sweet remedies and night wand'rings
Holy words dig early graves

    General CommentI always though the second last line was "sweet remedies and night wanderings"... No idea what the last line is though!

    hands over your eyes
    we're all on your side

    sweet were the days, the night was breathing
    only words dig early beds

    General Commentthis song to me is about two people wanting each other either because the timing is wrong or because they're both too afraid (give my gift to you...if not now not ever//is it the right time for the game we play).
    as a result they each try to convince themselves that it isn't worth it.

    "this is the right time for a holiday" also makes me think that they need time apart before they can letting their love grow.

    i dunno

    General Commenti'm not sure if those last two lines are correct. it sounds different to me, although i can't offer much of an alternative that makes sense.

    however, hands down favorite beach house song. fucking gorgeous. i'm playing this at my wedding.

    At 3:02, it's clear- the last two lines are
    "Sweet remedies ignite my dreams
    Holy words did early grace"
