"Blue Blood" as written by Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis, James Smith, Jack William Bevan, Edwin Thomas Congreave and Walter James Morrison Gervers....
You've got blue blood on your hands
I think it's my own
We can go down to the streets
And follow the shores
Of all the people
We could be two
Then I bite my nails to the quick
Run back home

You've got blue blood on your hands
I know it's my own
You came at me in the midnight
To show me my soul
Of all the people
I hoped it'd be you
To come and free me, take me away
To show me my home
Where I was born
Where I belong

'Cause you've got blue blood on your hands
I want you to know
I hoped you'd come and take me away
Back to my home
Of all the people
It had to be you
Then I bite my nails to the quick
Run back home

You showed me where to go
To my home, to my home
So take me through the roads
That you know to my home

You've got blue blood on your hands
I know it's my own
You came at me in the midnight
To show me my soul

You showed me where to go
To my home, to my home
So take me through the roads
That you know to my home

Come with me, accept it, affect it, protect it (you showed me)
Come with me, accept it, so now you know (where to go, to my home)
Come with me, accept it, affect it, protect it (to my home, you showed me)
Come with me accept it, so now you know (where to go, to my home)
To my home

You showed me where to go
To my home, to my home
So take me through the roads
That you know, that you know
That you know
To my home
So take me through the roads
That you know where you know
You showed me where to go, to my home

Come with me, accept it, affect it, protect it
Come with me, accept it, so now you know
Come with me, accept it, affect it, protect it
Come with me, accept it, so now you know

You've got the blood on your hands
I know it's my own
We can go down to the streets
And follow the shores
Of all the people
I hoped it'd be you
You showed me my way back home
To where I was born
Where I belong
Where I belong

    General CommentI also think its "Blue Blood" as in 'the blood of a depressed person' ,like The Supplanter said.

    The video reminded me of a book I had to read for school called "El niño que enloqueció de amor". The little kid falls in love with an older woman because she humors him, thinking of it like a game and 'what a cute little kid'. The boy goes crazy over suffering from unrequited love.

    The kid in the video is a great actor. icanfeelthepain

    General CommentI think I got a couple of the lyrics wrong but Yannis' vocal style has changed on this album so it was tough to get a couple of the lyrics.

    Such a wonderful song.

    General Commenti don't know if this helps but apparently blue blue blood is associated with nobility.

    General Commentgood lyrics overall. i listened to a live version and some of the lyrics are a lot easier to understand.. here's what i got fixed...

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    i think it's my own
    we can go down to the streets
    follow the shores

    of all the people
    we could be two
    but i bite my nails to the quick run back home

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    i know it's my own
    you came at me in the mid of night
    showed me my soul

    of all the people
    i knew it'd be you
    to come and free me, take me away
    show me my home
    where i was born
    where i belong

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    ooh you know
    hope you come and take me away
    back ??? home

    of all the people it had to be you
    then i bite my nails to the quick run back home

    ...
    come and be accepted, affected, protected
    come and be accepted, so now you know
    (2x)


    etc. love this song!!!

    General Commentit says "youve got blue blood on your hands."

    they performed it for bbc and the lyrics sound a bit clearer.
