Sunday Downloads - "Turn Me On" by The Grates

Here I go loving another UK song that I can't get in America.  The Grates have a few songs on iTunes, but this is their latest stuff that has not made it over yet.  The video is pretty cool, but the lyrics are even better.

* Update: As of July 10, 2012 this song (and their new album) is now available on iTunes here in America.  Woohoo!

I think the meaning is straight forward, "Turn Me On."

I say "Yes, please. Give me a double."  Hope you enjoy!



Lyrics "Turn Me On" by The Grates


It all started long ago.
We have staples, deep they go,
To a pasture vivid green, 
To a slow moving stream.

I will have you justify,  
Drawing on your baby teeth. 
Swing me lightly. Start my fire, I will roar.

Wrap yourself around me.
Do it, just define me.
Do it to ignite me.
Do it as a friend. 
Any way you want to.
Any way you need to. 
I can hold my breath.
Turn me on, turn me on.

Crawl inside your ancient eyes.
Feel your power, it’s a gift.
Swing me gently. Light my fire, I will grow.

Wrap yourself around me.
Do it, justify me.
Do it to ignite me.
Do it as a friend. 
Any way you want to.
Any way you need to.
I can skew it backwards.
Turn me on, turn me on.

Turn me on…

  4. Great taste in music, Dana! But you'll need to add this to your 'another Aussie song you love' list. ;)
