    I was listening to Spoon's "It took a rumor to make me wonder, now I'm convinced I'm gong under" And was curious if anyone knows the lyrics to the song. Most of its clear, but there a a few places where I'm not totally sure what Britt's singing. Can anyone give me a hand in putting the lyrics together?

    I have no idea about these lyrics!!! I seriously cannot understand it. Here's what I have, even though it's wrong:

    Witches Day

    Come back to texas and be my wife

    Want you to know

    Every day I'm a bit more gone

    You've been here everywhere, you fit in where you take yourself

    There's no pass anywhere

    Everyday I feel my legs

    Everyday's a bit further ohh

    Every night you paint some more

    Everyday you're a bit more gone

    Haha I know most of it is wrong!!! Sorry!

    Here's my stab. Pretty confident about the last 4 lines:

    Witches day

    Come back to texas and be my wife

    Bitches day

    Come back to texas and be my wife

    Want you to know I've been waiting for so long

    Everyday I'm a bit more gone

    You fit in everywhere, you fit in where you take yourself

    You fit in anywhere, oh yeah, that's your ????? anywhere

    Every day I feel you less

    Every day's a bit further on

    Every night you fade some more

    Every day you're a bit more gone

    No, no I think it starts:

    Which is day, which is night,

    Come back to Texas and be my wife,

    Bitches day, bitches night.....

    Thanks Tyler and Pherron, sorry its taken me so long to get back to this, school has kept me busy. I went back and listened to the song a bunch-o-times with your suggestions in mind and came up with this;

    Witches day, Bitches night
    Come back to Texas and be my wife
    Bitches day, bitches night
    Come back to Texas and save my life
    want you to know I've been waiting for so long
    Everyday I ________ for long
    Witches day, bitches night
    you fit in everywhere, I said
    you fit in where you take yourself
    you fit in anywhere, oh yeah
    There's a place for you anywhere
    Everyday I feel less
    Everyday we get further apart
    Every night you fade some more
    Everyday your a bit more gone
    gone, gone , gone, oh, gone, oh...

    That's what I've heard, although it's tough to say anything for sure about this song haha. I feel like I hear different things every time I listen to it. Wutcha think?

    I don't think Spoon wants us to know.

    Haha, I'm with Gabe on this one. There got to be some elaborate cover up, Spoon just doesn't want their followers (followers sounds creepy, but lets go with it) to know the lyrics to these B side songs. Not knowing for sure kinda irritates me, but its also fun trying to guess at it.

    Here it is:

    WHICH IS DAY
    WHICH IS NIGHT
    COME BACK TO TEXAS AND BE MY WIFE
    WHICH IS DAY
    WHICH IS NIGHT
    COME BACK TO TEXAS AND SAVE MY LIFE
    WANT YOU TO KNOW I BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG
    EVERY DAY YOU'RE A BIT MORE GONE
    YOU FIT IN EVERYWHERE
    I SAID YOU FIT IN WHERE YOU TAKE YOURSELF
    YOU FIT IN ANYWHERE
    THEY'RE SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE ANYWHERE
    EVERY DAY I FEEL IT LESS
    EVERY DAY'S A BIT FURTHER OFF
    EVERY NIGHT YOU FADE SOME MORE
    EVERY DAY YOU'RE A BIT MORE GONE
    GONE

    I hope you guys are enjoying your time off of touring. Maybe see you at Summerfest? Milwaukee is waiting.

    P.S. If this is someone pretending to be the band I'd hate you, but still thank you for the lyrics. Friends driven by hate.

    It just kinda floored me. That they actually pay attention to their board and fans. Just reiterates how cool they are.

    Hahaha, so much for "they don't want us to know" (only based on the fact that B-sides aren't necessarily lyrical masterpieces).

    Thanks Spoon/Britt/whoever/whomever!

    Wait Gabriel.....Spoon's B-Sides have good lyrics!! This one in particular. Probably my favorite "I Could be Underground". I love those lyrics.
