/ / ALL THE 1975 AND DRIVE LIKE I DO LYRICS / /
FINISHED! for the first time ever (woo!!!) compiled into one space are all the lyrics to the 1975 and drive like I do songs* (that I know about at least - song links attached!!).
(bear with me for a minute here friends…)
regardless of the risk of sounding quite dramatic, this little “project” sent me on one of the biggest emotional roller coasters in a long time. as if matty’s lyrics in all of the 1975 songs weren’t already enough to tear my heart to pieces (in all the best and worst ways), listening to the drive like I do songs (literally hundreds of times to figure out what he was saying through that darling accent of his) sent me to a different world. between laughing too hard at what my poor american ears thought the lyrics were, to dancing around my room when we (were pretty sure we) figured them out, to flat out crying because it's the matty, george, adam and ross we all now know, the experience was inspiring. matty’s precious adolescent voice and the sound of their music is so enthusiastic - you can feel the excitement (and the wonderful teenage angst of course) and can immediately tell the love they have for writing and playing music. every song brought tears to my eyes. I now have a completely different level of understanding, respect and appreciation of the journey of these four beautiful boys; a new perspective that makes my heart want to burst from complete unadulterated love and happiness. I could never come close to explaining the effect they have had on my life, nor will I try, because I think it’s a mutual feeling and understanding among all of their fans. x
*[disclaimer: all drive like I do lyrics are in no way official. they were translated from listening (and extensive research on everything matty likes so much to talk about/reference ;) ). I could not find them anywhere online for the life of me so we wrote what we heard.]
HUGE SHOUT OUT to the amazing and beautiful sara (g-oldielock-s / dontyoumind1975) for helping me sort out all of the lyrics for hours and hours on end. you should all go follow her right this minute because she is absolutely incredible. also another HUGE SHOUT OUT to joe (moreleftovers) for being all around amazing and so insanely helpful (we couldn’t have done this without you!!) so if I messed anything up, I apologize! just drop me a message and I will fix whatever we (likely…) heard wrong.
lastly, SO MUCH LOVE to you all for being the most extraordinary followers in the entire world, and to any and all fans of the 1975. they truly are a blessing to us all. xxxxx
now go sing along because it will make your day. promise ;) <3
