Song Description

Song inspired by Andre Breton's surrealist classic Nadja and its eponymous heroine, with a suitably mysterious and Gallic sound. Opens with an authentic-sounding French accordian waltz passage. From Worldview's "Schoolboy Errors" album. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

I think Breton was on to something
There's a level beyond the humdrum
And improbable events
That we call coincidence
They hold a hidden meaning like the symbols in our dreams

And they come and they go
These secret signs and clues
And you're hungry to know
Where they are pointing to
Then you stumble on your Nadja
And you're sure she holds the answers
She is genius roaming free

I say Breton was on to something
There's a beauty beyond the humdrum
And its wonders are displayed
In this girl who can't be tamed
And doesn't even realise she exists outside the law

And they come and they go
These secret signs and clues
And you're hungry to know
Where they are pointing to
And they're beckoning your Nadja
And she's heading for disaster
But you urge her on all the same

Oh looking over the obvious
For a glimpse of the marvellous
But the edge can be hazardous

We know Breton discovered something
There's a danger beyond the humdrum
Now you're watching from a cliff
As she's lost to the abyss
She's fallen from the frontier between insight and insane

They come and they go
Like that bright soul you knew
Cos you couldn't follow
Where she was walking to
So you sacrificed your Nadja
To live madly ever after
Where they've thrown away the key
And you thought that she had the key
And you thought it could make us free
