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
