Lyrics: Veronika (Tricky)

New Tricky album out last week. It’s the first one in five years and it’s really good. Best one since Maxinquaye. This is one of my favorite tracks from the album.

Artist: Tricky (featuring Veronika Coassolo)
Song: Veronika
Album: Knowle West Boy

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold

Dead
Guilty now
Here there’s no mercy for you
I stand

Burning your image
Your lies
And your hands
You’re dead

I’m building a prayer for the memories
I can’t stand
Your life doesn’t bother me now
I’m discharged

I kill yourself
Just to feel good
And make my life
Better without your trace

You’re dead
Buried under this ground

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold

Damned
But I felt the shame of the cheap life
For this
I’m blessed

You kept on poisoning all of my days
And for this
Brutally choking
So I bought a smile
From death

The other side of it
Thought of your demise
Was my life
And I love
All my survival skills

I loved you too
But you tried to kill me as well
Too bad
You didn’t give me respect

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts
To your mind that way
You coulda never jumped down in those arms
You coulda never left my heart cold
