Portishead 3 - some lyrics...

Well I've had my copy of Portishead 3 (aka Portishead - Third) for a couple of days now but I'm listening to it too much to have found time to work the lyrics out for myself. I don't know if the CD version has them printed inside and the download almost certainly doesn't. My vinyl copy certainly doesn't but I'll forgive it that!

Here are some courtesy of

I can't guarantee that they are complete or even correct but it is a start! If you know of others, or indeed more reliable ones then please add them in a comment or let me know otherwise.

No-one said
We’d ever known each other
And new evidence is what we require
In this world.

I stand on the edge of a broken sky
And I will come down; don’t know why
And if I should fall, would you hold me?
Would you pass me by?
For you know I’d ask you for nothing
Just to wait for a while.

So confused
My thoughts are takin’ over
Unwanted, arising space me instead
Won’t let go.

I stand on the edge of a broken sky
And I will come down; don’t know why
And if I should fall, would you hold me?
Would you pass me by?
For you know I’d ask you for nothing
Just to wait for a while.


Magic Doors

I can't deny what I've become
I'm just emotionally undone
I can't deny I can with someone else
When I have tried to find the words
To describe this sense absurd
Try to resist my thoughts but I can't lie.

All the muse in myself
My desire I can't hide
No reason and I thought.

I can't divide they'll hide from me
I don't know who I'm meant to be
I guess it's just the person that I am
Often I've felt that I don't wade
Into the gift of my mistake
Again, again I'm wrong, and I confess
All the muse in myself
My desire I can't hide,
No reason I thought.

All the muse in myself
My desire I can't hide,
No reason I thought.


Nylon Smile

I'd like to laugh at what you said
but I just can't find a smile
I wonder why you can't.
I struggle with myself
Hoping I might change a little,
Hoping that I might be
Someone I wanna be.

Looking out I wanna know someone might care
Looking out I want a reason to be there
'cause I don't know what I did to deserve you
I don't know what I'll do, without you.

Looking out I wanna know someway might clear
Looking out I want a reason to repair
'cause I don't know what I did to deserve you
I don't know what I'll do, without you

I can't see nothing good
and nothing is so bad
I've never had the chance to explain
Exactly what I meant.
