i’m tagging whoever feels like doing it because i’m a rebel and i don’t follow the rules (actually i’m just shy sorry)


Franz Ferdinand - Eleanor Put Your Boots On

Le ragazze, quelle che camminano,
con stivali di occhi neri,
sui fiori del mio cuore.

Eleanor Put Your Boots On - Franz Ferdinand

I love the lyrics and feel of this song. When I’m sad it always makes me feel better, in a nostalgic sort of way.

Eleanor put those boots back on,
Kick the heels into the Brooklyn dirt,
I know it isn’t dignified to run,
But if you run,
You can run to the Coney Island roller coaster,
Ride to the highest point and leap across the filthy water,
Leap until the Gulf Stream’s brought you down.

I could be there when you land, I could be there when you land

So Eleanor take a Green Point three point,
Turn towards the hidden sun,
You know you look so elegant when you run,
If you run, you can run,
To that statue with the dictionary,
Climb to her fingernail and leap, yeah,
Take an atmospheric leap,
Leap and let the jet stream set you down.

Could be there when you land,
I could be there when you land,
Could be there when you land.

So Eleanor put those boots back on,
Put the boots back on and run, run,
Come on over here, come on over here,
Come on over here…
