Goldfinger

Move closer, set my mind on fire
Taking over, the world seems so alive
The world seems so alive

She slips into the night and she is gone
Gone to settle the score, gone into the town
Rain shining in her eyes
Her brother started school again today
A thought to pass the time to occupy my mind
While I’m waiting for her

Down in the basement, listening to the rain
Thinking things over, I think it over again
I think it over again

She slips into the night and she is gone
Gone to settle the score, gone into the town
Rain shining in her eyes
Her brother started school again today
A thought to pass the time to occupy my mind
While I’m waiting for her

I’m writing it down, listening to the rain
She’ll be here soon, I lie back and drift away
I lie back and drift a way

She slips into the night and she is gone
Gone to settle the score, gone into the town
Rain shining in her eyes
Her brother started school again today
A thought to pass the time to occupy my mind
While I’m waiting for her

I’m feeling so alive, feeling so real
On a stormy night, the rain is coming down
Rain like never before
I’ve got some records on, and some bottles of wine
On a stormy night, the rain is lashing down
And I’m waiting for her

Song Notes

“Goldfinger” is one of the bands most famous songs and a constant in their live set. It remains of one Tim’s favourite songs:

I was really proud of this at the time because of the chord sequences and melodies. It’s a long way from three-chord punk rock and was a big moment in our development.
