about

Seccond single from the actual album "Tilt". Remastered radio version. Mike Jones comments on this song: It’s a really tough call, the Simon Bolivar quote sums it up for me: "Judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement". - It’s about obsession; denying your own instincts because someone is so compelling; knowing it won’t last and yet never losing the sense of the brief moment of it ‘working’. Dancing with doom.

lyrics

Nico
(Jeffries/Jones)

If chaos had a face it would have your endless eyes
I would never learn to swim them, never learn to fly
I would never find the way out, never learn the grid
The first time I saw them, I really should have hid.

But you looked like Nico
And I knew from the get-go
That I just couldn’t let go
Because you looked like Nico.
And I knew from the get-go
That I just couldn’t let go

The poppy is a red, a red it shares with blood
What we gather in a heartbeat, we let go in the flood
I thought that I had won her trust, I won the blues instead
This is where I stumbled, this is where I bled

But you looked like Nico
And I knew from the get-go
That I just couldn’t let go
Because you looked like Nico.
And I knew from the get-go…….

When we met why did it look like a movie
Or maybe an ad
Why were the first ten seconds
The best ten seconds we had?

But you looked like Nico
And I knew from the get-go
That I just couldn’t let go
Because you looked like Nico.
And I knew from the get-go
That I just couldn’t let go

about

Latin Quarter UK

Latin Quarter first burst onto the scene with their singles "Radio Africa" and "New Millionaires" – songs that stayed for months in the German single charts in the 80s. The band split up in 1998. In 2011 five of the original musicians got together again. Unlike other bands they didn’t rely on previous fame but released two albums with new songs - 'Ocean Head' and 'Tilt'. ... more
