"Pure" as written by and Ian Broudie....
Night time slows, raindrops splash rainbows
Perhaps someone you know, could sparkle and shine
As daydreams slide to color from shadow
Picture the moonglow, that dazzles my eyes
And I love you

Just lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple everytime
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple everytime

Dreams of sights, of sleigh rides in seasons
Where feelings not reasons, can make you decide
As leaves pour down, splash autumn on gardens
As colder nights harden, their moonlit delights
And I love you

Just lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple every time
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple every time

Look at me with starry eyes
Push me up to starry skies
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple every time
Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you

If love's the truth then look no lies
And let me swim around your eyes
I've found a place I'll never leave
Shut my mouth and just believe
Love is the truth I realize
Not a stream of pretty lies
To use us up and waste our time

Lying smiling in the dark
Shooting stars around your heart
Dreams come bouncing in your head
Pure and simple every time
Now you're crying in your sleep
I wish you'd never learnt to weep
Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping
Pure and simple every time

Look at me with starry eyes
Push me up to starry skies
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple every time
Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you
Pure and simple just for you

    General CommentI really love the lightning seeds

    if you listen to the lyrics, you can see there is some hidden meaning behind them, even if you just thought they sounded cool.

    whoever wrote these songs is a genius. if you listen to any modern-day song, often you will find they are just a group of words jumbled together so that they rhyme, and some dont rhyme at all, but with the lightning seeds its different. its so poetic, and yet so enjoyable to listen to.

    Maybe its just me, because i grew up listening to this band.

    Meh

    General CommentThe segue from first chorus to second verse when the bass returns to settled story-telling... absolute magic- communicating that everything will be OK

    General CommentExactly - I just found a best of CD in my mums "collection" (more of a lineup of criminals against music, except the odd innocents), and.... meh. I like this song.

    "Now you're crying in your sleep
    I wish you'd never learnt to weep"

    I love that bit.
