"Never Seen Such Good Things " as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Never seen such good things go so wrong,
And everywhere we turn they're playing our song.

(Mm hmm hmm, hmm hmm hmm).

Well, should have known someone so much like me,
Would give me Hell and send me to my knees.

Love, you're a strange fella',
Show Eve your mark and let 'er be.

Love, you're a strange fella',
Wont you leave your mark on me?

If we ever make sweet love again,
I'm sure that it will be quite disgusting.

(Race to the end, race to the end.)

The memory of a ceremony so
Empty, bitter, boring, and hollow.

(Hollow, hollow)

But, love, you're a strange fella
Show Eve your mark and let 'er be.
May as well be forever,
Love, wont you come and punish me?

(Sad lady, you win)
Sad lady you win
(Sad lady, you win)
Sad lady you win
(Sad lady, you win)
Sad lady you win
(Sad lady, you win)
Sad lady you win

(Na, naa, na, na, naa)
(Na, naa, na, na, naa)
(Na, naa, na, na, naa)
(Na, naa, na, na, naa)

    My OpinionThere's definitely a change in Devendra's style! At the moment, one can find only three songs fully available on the internet - youtube - from the new album Mala due to come in March this year. It's quite clear from these three songs, Devendra's current appearance (he's so good looking anyway!) and recent interviews that his artistic stance is a little sadder than his light hearted songs.
    I think Never Seen Such Good Things Go So Wrong sings about a relationship with a beautiful start ("such good things go so wrong"), but in which the male character is unable to find a much needed, strong love ("won't you leave your mark on me"). Making love is no longer an intimate activity. He resigns himself and continues to be with his lady, who is likely the one in the relationship who actually is in love ("sad lady you win").
    Love Devendra xx
