Big Thief – Little Things

The indie-rock band, Big Thief released their first new music since their 2019 album Two Hands. Here’s the first song called “Little Things” which is actually a love song in which Adrianne Lenker sings a declaration of love.

Little Things lyrics here:

The little things I like about you
How you say when you say what you do
When your feeling is a little gold and blue
When your feeling is a little strung out

Everything we talk about
Living in the city is a crowded place
I still lose sight of every other face

Turn in your direction
Feeling like I need attention
Told you this once or twice
Won’t you hear?
I see you in the yard, drinking a beer
Leaving me undressed like some cheap
Classic movie
Maybe I’m a little obsessed
Maybe you do use me

One step behind you
Following you down
I was inside of you
Kissing your mouth
You were inside of me
Kissing my mouth
Seein’ out that needle eye
Seein’ out that needle eye
Seein’ out that needle eye

The little things I like about you
How you say when you say what you do
When your feeling is a little gold and blue
When you’re feeling a little strung out
Everything we talk about
New York City is a crowded place
I still lose sight of every other face

One step behind you
Following you down
I was inside of you
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

The things I love
The things, the things I like
Will you stay?
Will you feel?
You’ll feel

Big Thief – Sparrow

The indie-rock band, Big Thief released their first new music since their 2019 album Two Hands.
The other new song called “Sparrow” is a gently strummed folk song which you may listen to below.

Sparrow Lyrics in here:

Wrapped in the wings of a sparrow
Beak is as sharp as an arrow
Sings in a whispering whistle
Sleeps in the ivy and thistle
Owls out swooping and howlin’
Deep in the midnight a’ prowlin’
Mama, the scream of the eagle
Threading my heart through the needle
Threading the blood through the apple
Sucking the juice from the apple
Eating the seeds of the apple
Bearing the tree of the apple
Trapped in the weeds like a scarecrow
Stuck to the wind like Velcro
Distantly hearing the bell toll
Warbling chime through the meadow
Mama, the scream of the eagle
Threading my heart through the needle
Threading the blood through the apple
Eve sucked the juice from the apple
Nakedly running, I saw her
Boy chasing after to stall her
I wish I’d have spoken to call her
Before she found fabric to shawl her
Breasts bound and burdened with fiber
Adam came trembling beside her
And he said, he said
“She has the poison inside her
She talks to snakes and they guide her
She has the poison inside her
She talks to snakes and they guide her
She has the poison inside her
She talks to snakes and they guide her”
She has the poison inside her
She talks to snakes and they guide her
