    I think it's so funny that the cocteau twins have a page on songmeanings.

    Lyric Correction

    Carnivals are bluster loud I'm dizzy so i go under the 'big dipper' Come fantasy for a carnival How fitting before a wedding

    This is what I think it is: Paramours are blessed they are I'll do some self adore under the 'Big Dipper' Come fantasy for a carnival How fitting for a wedding day.

    HyperGlitter-

    I definitely hear "I want to love a boy that won't love me"~

    you're 100% right- they need to amend these lyrics, for sure....

    I love the sound & feel of this song- not as much as Lazy Calm, but a close 2nd....

    This song was inspired by the Cocteau's visit to Vegas.

    I think that the phrase "Heaven or Las Vegas" arose in a much earlier Cocteau Twins song. Lawrence, the singer of Felt, told the band how much he loved that phrase, in that it's so ambiguous: Is it saying that Las Vegas is heaven or hell or both?

    I don't think it was inspired by them going to Las Vegas--at least I've never heard that. Naturally, though, they ended their US tour of that album in Las Vegas.

    I thought the whole idea of the CT was that the lyrics weren't important. It wasn't supposed to be interpreted because they sang words that fit and sounded in harmony. To try to translate in interpret the lyrics may be a total waste of time.

    I'm brazilian and, as you can see, my english is pretty poor. But, even so, even I can't understand anything, or almost anything she says, many of her songs make me melancholic, not sad, but introspective . Ok, maybe a little sad. It brings me back to my teen years. It's strange because I didn't know the CT that time.
