Thom Yorke Duets

I’ve Seen it All (Bjork and Thom Yorke)

I’ve seen it all, I have seen the trees,
I’ve seen the willow leaves dancing in the breeze
I’ve seen a man killed by his best friend,
And lives that were over before they were spent.
I’ve seen what I was and I know what I’ll be
I’ve seen it all – there is no more to see

You haven’t seen elephants, kings or Peru
I’m happy to say I had better to do
What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great, if the roof doesn’t fall

And the man you will marry
The home you will share?
To be honest, I really don’t care…

You’ve never been to Niagara Falls
I have seen water, its water, that’s all…
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?
My pulse was as high on my very first date
Your grandson’s hand as he plays with your hair
To be honest, I really don’t care…

I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen the dark
I’ve seen the brightness in one little spark.
I’ve seen what I chose and I’ve seen what I need,
And that is enough, to want more would be greed.
I’ve seen what I was and I know what I’ll be
I’ve seen it all – there is no more to see

You’ve seen it all and all you have seen
You can always review on your own little screen
The light and the dark, the big and the small
Just keep in mind – you need no more at all
You’ve seen what you were and you know what you’ll be
You’ve seen it all – there is no more to see

This Mess We’re In (PJ Harvey and Thom Yorke)

Can you hear them?
The helicopters?
I’m in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it’s Wednesday
The evening
The mess we’re in and
(The city sunset over me)

Night and day
I dream of
Making love
To you now baby
Love-making
On-screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise
Over the river
The freeway
Reminding
Of this mess we’re in and
(The city sunset over me)

What were you wanting? (What was it you wanted?)
I just want to say (I just want to say)
(Don’t ever change) Don’t ever change now baby
(And thank you) And thank you
(I don’t think we will meet again) I don’t think we will meet again
(And you must leave now) And you must leave now
(Before the sun rises over the skycrapers) Before the sunrise
(And the city landscape comes into being) Above skyscrapers
(The sweat on my skin) The sin and
This mess we’re in and
(The city sunset over me)
