This new song was performed for the first time live at the Braunschweig gig in Germany, October 22nd. Only 2 weeks before we can listen to it on the Apollo Edition... unless someone recorded the live performance and will upload it to Youtube...

Einen dicken Knutscher für das Video DBS


Thommy immediately said that Smoke Signals reminds him to Young Folks in some parts....

I like Karl using the "wire-brush"; it totally relaxes me

This song is so wonderful that I had to write down the lyrics. So here they are. Feel free to correct my mistakes.

Smoke Signals

One by one they pass me by
And I used up my supplies
Out of water
Out of hope
Can't make fire
Only smoke

Here I am alone in silence
Cast away on a desert island
A traveller in ocean
lost at sea

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see me as you pass by
I'm screaming from a clifftop
You're the only one that got to rescue me
To rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here wihout you
Oh, I can't live without you

Sun comes up
The sun goes down
Wonder if I'd ever be found

Here I am alone in silence
Cast away on a desert island
A traveller in ocean
lost at sea

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see me as you pass by
I'm screaming from a clifftop
You're the only one that got to rescue me
To rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here wihout you
Oh, I can't live without you

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see me as you pass by
I'm screaming from a clifftop
You're the only one that got to rescue me
To rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here wihout you
Oh, I can't live without you

BTW: The song makes me think of Ed Sheerans "I see fire".

I am listening to the song over and over again and wrote down the lyrics.

I simply LOVE it.

So glad that you all like the video so much. Thank you!

L.O.V.E. forever. : blush:

Thank you for the lyrics, Butterfly82. Isn't it cool that we have a video, the lyrics with a few chords and the CD is not yet released. Of course, it's not that we are impatient or anything.

Pah, patience is our second name....ehr....the song is not even released and I know it by heart and sing it all the time.

I absolutely agree with you too, Simon. This is James Blunt at his best! Great melody, poetic lyrics, lots of emotion. WOW! I nearly cried, when I saw darkbluespirit's video for the first time.

I absolutely agree with you butterfly...

It is 100% James and a kind of "back to the roots" thing...

WONDERFUL!

I was reduced to tears listening and watching James perform Smoke Signals recently in Budapest! WOW!!! This song is beautiful and James voice is beautiful live performing this! It made me think of 'Young Folks' a little, as to me that is beautiful too. Well done to James for this masterpiece

Oops sorry, I wrote this without catching up with earlier posts! Just picked up now on what Ina said about it reminding Thommy of Young Folks!! Sorry if Im repeating anybody else here too. I will read all this thread at a later date! Too much work to do at the moment, I'm catching up at work due to my last JB adventures!!!

Smoke Signals as studio version is so pure, so much James, back to the roots - just stunning. I love it!

Listened to it on Spotifiy. I didn't receive my Apollo Edition... They wrote because of difficulties in delivery.

Thanks to DarkBlueSpirit's husband WE got such a wonderful LIVE version of this song, which is so beautiful in the performance and the sound. I love it much more than the studio version, which is a bit toooo fast for my ears. But altogether it is a beautiful song. Hope to listen to it live sometime.

This song makes me so sad. It always reminds me on the situation in Africa.
James voice sounds so (I don't know, if you say that in english) smoky, (kind of rough), perfect.

I agree with you, Asmina. I prefer the slower live version, too. It's just so pure and honest.

And seeing James standing there, concentrated, sweaty and sexy, singing his soul out. He's such a brilliant live-performer.

Nice song. This song reminds me of the movie Castaway. I can't help thinking of that when I hear the lyrics. I love that movie and Tom Hanks is one of my very favorite actors so there is no way that I wouldn't like this song. It's very nice.

But when I listen to it I don't think of someone actually stuck on an island. I think of someone with depression or something like that who is lost and is hoping someone will notice they are troubled and need to be rescued because maybe they can't do it for themselves. It's very sad really. But the double meaning in every line is deep and thoughtful and I always enjoy when a song can make you feel lost in thought and this is one of them.

Or maybe about a one-sided relationship where a person is pining for someone and it is not reciprocated or possibly even recognized.
