blue cassette lyrics – friendly fires

“blue c*ssette”

i found a tape in my back garden
a blue c*ssette covered in dirt
and through the dust the reels start turning
and plays the memories stored in earth

as i hear your voice, it sets my heart on fire, that with all the noise
it sets my heart on fire, and i can’t stop the reels from turning
i can’t stop the tape machine, as i hear your voice
it sets my heart on fire, my heart on fire

i found a place i thought was stolen
a place that’s built on noise and leads
and in my hand it spins so gently
and fills a void rewinding me

as i hear your voice, it sets my heart on fire, that with all the noise
it sets my heart on fire, and i can’t stop the reels from turning
i can’t stop the tape machine, as i hear your voice
it sets my heart on fire, my heart on fire

lay back down, i told myself
you’re buried in earth, i told myself
lay back down, i told myself
how could i ever forget you?

as i hear your voice, it sets my heart on fire, that with all the noise
it sets my heart on fire, and i can’t stop the reels from turning
i can’t stop the tape machine, as i hear your voice
it sets my heart on fire, my heart on fire

i found a tape in my back garden
a blue c*ssette covered in dirt
