Catfish And The Bottlemmen-Cocoon

It was about time to talk about Catfish And The Bottlemen. The four-piece band from Llandudno, North Wales. Their journey in music began in 2007, but in 2014 they had the chance to sign to Island Records. After attending several music festivals, showing how incredible they are, their debut album, The Balcony released in September 2014. Ryan, Johnny, Benji and Robert have found the magic recipe to create the best indie-rock music. You can watch here their latest music video for "Cocoon", Lead singer Van McCann explains the meaning behind the song: “I was living in this apartment block in New York, and I used to go up to the rooftop for a smoke and look over the skyline which was beautiful every night. I was away from home and missing the love of my life, and I just wanted to write a song about being together and fucking everybody off. So ‘Cocoon’ is about being madly in love with someone, your best friend or whoever, and people try to get inside that and fuck shit up for you.” Enjoy on Lyrics On My Wall.


Catfish And The Bottlemmen-Cocoon

I fell straight
Into your arms
Like a drunk
Who’s been on it
All morning.
And the sun’s up
And my head’s fucked.
And immediately I grab you
You go all red
Like the first time
I love it when you do that
God I love it when you do that.

I remember when we
Swapped names and I thought maybe
You’d stay and try to out-drink me
Your friends, all hated it!

Fuck it if they talk
Fuck it if they try and get to us
Cause I'd rather go blind
Than let you down.

I cocoon
Round your shoulders
When you’re half cut
And you’re frozen
And you’ve got that visible breathing
You’re depending on me again.

I remember when we
Swapped names and I thought maybe
You’d stay and try to out-drink me
Your friends, all hated it!

Fuck it if they talk
Fuck it if they try and get to us
Cause I'd rather go blind
Than let you down.

Fuck it if they talk
Fuck it if they try and get to us
Cause I'd rather go blind
Than let you down.

And if you wanna shut down and pose as positive and
Hide smoking from relatives and
Rest on me,
Honey, that’s all right!
And if you wanna act more drunk than usual
To help you get away with more than
Rest on me,
Honey, that’s alright!
Honey, that’s alright!

I cocoon
Round your shoulders
When you're half cut
When you're half cut

Fuck it if they talk
Fuck it if they try and get to us
Cause I'd rather go blind
Than let you down.
I remember when we
Swapped names and I thought maybe
You’d stay and try to out-drink me
Your friends, all hated it!
