Auch für das dritte Los Campesinos! Album „Romance Is Boring“ könnt ihr in unserem Jahrespoll abstimmen. Seit dem Release war die Band natürlich nicht untätig, so hat sie etwa unlängst ein vierteljährlich erscheinendes Print-Zine gelauncht. Und um das und auch das anstehende Weihnachtsfest zu feiern verschenkt die Band nun ihren Weihnachts-Song „Kindle A Flame In Her Heart“. Über das Widget unten gibt es das Stück zum Download. Die Lyrics gibt’s hier:

“HARK!” the herald angels sing, “the boy’s a cherub, let him be”.
And you harmonised more beautifully than they could.
At 8 years old I played the role of Gabriel dressed head to toe,
in white denim though with less optimistic foresight.

Your lips land lightly, like Robin Redbreast’s feet in the snow,
I hold you tightly like your halo’s lined with mistletoe.
Thawing my heart like morning frost, falling under my feet.
Oh silent night, oh lonely week

Merry Christmas
I wish you were here
Merry Christmas
Maybe 5, 10, 15, 20 years.

Kindle a flame in her heart,
kindle a flame.
You’ve got to untie me from these bows,
wrap your arms around me like swaddling clothes.

On the sixteenth day I opened up the window,
found a lump of coal and rammed it down my stupid, greedy throat.
On the seventeenth you came around, my tiny teeth had been ground down,
but then you turned them back to smiles with just one kiss,
now listen to this…

Kindle A Flame In Her Heart by Los Campesinos!
