From Here: hopeandsocial.wordpress.com/2010/04/23/april-track-5-follow-you-into/

This song happened just about as naturally as any song can. We’d been writing all day and feeling pretty beaten, I sat down on the sofa in the studio and just started playing the arpeggio guitar part and singing some random lines over the top. Ed joined in on piano, Rich on gloc and then guitar and we hit record. I’ve posted that original on Soundcloud which I hope will show up here:

It meanders and we’re not sure of the exact chord changes but this is literally the first or second time we played it.

Really easy and joyful to record – Gary and James worked out a great gloc/piano melody and Hux recorded his big guitar part with me standing on top of Jase’s old bass cab punching the air (Ed, you got a photo?). Brilliant stuff. For the record, James’ left-hand bass piano bit in the 2nd verse (sounds a bit like Sufjan Stevens) is my favourite bit of music on the whole album.

The refrain? “I’ll Follow You Into…”. I’ll follow you into hell if you need me.

Short but sweet. Simon.

lyrics

Head like a hollow, head like a hole
I sit here waiting and weighing these bones, oh these bones
You're sleeping oblivious to the mess in this mind
Take warmth from your skin like the April sunshine, it's devine

I'll follow you into...
I'll follow you home
I'll follow you into...

Head like a hollow, missing the fun
Scaring myself with a death that's to come, it's to come
You tell me quite rightly to open these eyes
Stare out the future with a childish surprise, I'm surprised

I'll follow you into...
I'll follow you home
I'll follow you into...

Wherever that we lay our hope is our home
Wherever we go we won't go it alone
Wherever we gather we'll sing from our souls
Wherever we walk we won't walk it alone

I'll follow you into...
I'll follow you home
I'll follow you into...

Wherever that we lay our hope is our home
Wherever we go we won't go it alone
Wherever we gather we'll sing from our souls
How can a man live a life all alone?

Head like a hollow, head like a hole
Smiling contented, the place of our home, of our home

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
