The Kooks - Backstabber

Album

Listen is the fourth studio album by British rock band The Kooks. It was released on 8 September 2014 through Universal. It is the band's first album to feature new drummer Alexis Nunez who joined in 2012, replacing Paul Garred. The album was preceded by singles "Down", "Around Town", "Bad Habit" and "Forgive & Forget".

Stylistically, the album differs from the band's previous work as elements of jazz, gospel, and R&B were added into the music. This album also marks the first time Tony Hoffer did not produce the band's work. Instead production was handled by Inflo with the band's lead singer and main songwriter Luke Pritchard as co-producer.

Listen was the band's first album in three years, with Junk of the Heart being released in September 2011. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and London.


Listen è il quarto album discografico in studio del gruppo musicale britannico The Kooks, pubblicato nel 2014.

Lyrics

You're like a rock to a stone,
So tell me how can you break a broken soul.
I don't wanna feel no more,
Baby, baby, I just wanna be adored.
And something's telling me that you're no rose,
Come along little sister, ghost to ghost.

You're a backstabber, gold chaser.
You got demons in your dream catcher.
Wave the flag, don't burn me down,
Don't burn me down.
You're a solid gold digger at your height.
You been a backstabber all your life.

Girl, you can't help yourself,
You love the thrill of something that's not yours.
That's why you're back knocking at my door,
Oh, baby, baby, you just love to be adored.
And something's telling me that you're no rose,
Come along little sister, ghost to ghost.

You're a backstabber, gold chaser.
You got demons in your dream catcher.
Wave the flag, don't burn me down,
Don't burn me down.
You're a solid gold digger at your height.
You been a backstabber all your life. (x2)

Wave the flag, don't burn me down,
Don't burn me down.
You're a solid gold digger at your height.
You been a backstabber all your life.

Testo

Sei come una roccia su una pietra
Quindi dimmi come puoi spezzare un'anima spezzata.
Non voglio più sentirmi
Piccola, piccola, voglio solo essere adorata.
E qualcosa mi sta dicendo che non sei una rosa,
Vieni sorellina, fantasma a fantasma.

Sei un pugnalato alle spalle, cacciatore d'oro.
Hai dei demoni nel tuo acchiappasogni.
Sventola la bandiera, non bruciarmi
Non bruciarmi.
Sei un cercatore d'oro massiccio alla tua altezza.
Sei stato un pugnalato per tutta la vita.

Ragazza, non puoi aiutarti,
Ti piace il brivido di qualcosa che non è tuo.
Ecco perché torni a bussare alla mia porta,
Oh, piccola, piccola, adori essere adorata.
E qualcosa mi sta dicendo che non sei una rosa,
Vieni sorellina, fantasma a fantasma.

Sei un pugnalato alle spalle, cacciatore d'oro.
Hai dei demoni nel tuo acchiappasogni.
Sventola la bandiera, non bruciarmi
Non bruciarmi.
Sei un cercatore d'oro massiccio alla tua altezza.
Sei stato un pugnalato per tutta la vita. (x2)

Sventola la bandiera, non bruciarmi
Non bruciarmi.
Sei un cercatore d'oro massiccio alla tua altezza.
Sei stato un pugnalato per tutta la vita.
