Manchester, Manchester, blowing some steam...

If Nothing But Thieves hit on Lana Del Rey, ending up at the cinema for their first date - CELIINs «Manchester» would be playing as the curtains came up, with it’s hard-hitting orchestral and theatrical pop/rock-feel. The artist herself calls it «Heavy Tango», recognisable in its seductive, panache and metal-esque drum sounds and surf-rock/60’s western guitar strums. With vampy lyrics and a french flare it looks like CELIIN is moving back towards her heavy roots - an appropriate development from the up and coming storyteller. 

 

…BTW If NBT and Lana got married after, I’m sure they would move to The Neighborhood.»

Manchester is a song about questioning one’s behaviour, delving into the internal conflict of failing to separate what does you good from what hurts you - all wrapped in a rather.. racy metaphor. It tells the story of someone who flirts with this duality, struggling to find where their boundaries should be. After all it’s in the mirage created by these ballerina-like movements where you stop existing and start to live… right?»

OFFICIAL LYRICS:

Manchester

By CELIIN  

 

1. VERSE:

Lady be loving the drama

Hard to explain

Maybe it’s some kind of trauma

Pleasure from pain

But don’t you love me, if you can’t afford this kind of vibe 

PRE-CHORUS:  

Even when you bite you gonna make my toes curl  

I say do it boy, I say do it boy  

Trust that I’m in love until I say our safe word  

I say do It boy, do it ‘till you hear me screaming  

 

CHORUS: 

Manchester, Manchester  

Call me extreme  

I don’t know why I love It when somebody’s hurting me 

Manchester, Manchester  

Blowing some steam

I feel ashamed to love it when somebody’s hurting me 

 

2. VERSE:

Ladies be good the camera  

Broken in tears  

Had me inspired

All of these years  

Don’t you love them, passing off the pain so satisfied 

 

PRE-CHORUS:  

Even when you bite you gonna make my toes curl  

I say do It boy, do it ‘till you hear me screaming  

 

CHORUS: 

Manchester, Manchester  

Call me extreme  

I don’t know why I love It when somebody’s hurting me 

Manchester, Manchester  

Blowing some steam

I feel ashamed to love it when somebody’s hurting me

 

BRIDGE:

Dungeon scenarios, falling for sicarios

Dungeon scenarios, falling for sicario

Dungeon scenarios, falling for sicarios  

Dungeon scenarios, falling for sicarios

Manchester, Manchester I know how it seems 

But I don’t always love it when somebody’s hurting me 

 

CHORUS: 

Manchester, Manchester  

Call me extreme  

I don’t know why I love It when somebody’s hurting me 

Manchester, Manchester  

Blowing some steam  

I feel ashamed to love it when somebody’s hurting me 

M-M-Manchester, Manchester, Man 

M-M-Manchester, Manchester, Man 

Mais j'aime flirter avec les contrastes...
