about

The Feline Dream Brighton, UK

The Feline Dream were a collaboration between David 'Deakie' Davis and Nicholas 'Mermaid' Carlisle, a pair of gingers from County Down.

The band met a wretched demise in December 2003, however due to the invention of the phonograph by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville on 25th March 1857, their music can still be enjoyed today.

Track Name: Florian und Magalie
I'll meet you at the station
Platform number four
There's nothing here to keep me anymore

I started feeling crazy
So many years ago
(Back in 1984?)
Ever since I let my baby go

Speeding through the tunnels
Changing at Cologne
Leave behind the safety of my home

But it's you and me together
You and me alone
The two of us forever on the run

(Florian... Magalie...)

Florian and Magalie
I don't know what's wrong with me
Florian and Magalie
Do they know what's wrong with me?
Wrong with me.
Florian and Magalie
Track Name: Glasshaus
Breathing words upon the glass
In a mist their meaning lost
I want to call your name
The more I try to make it clear
The more I disappear
There's nothing to be gained

Out of focus, out of sight
No way to win, no will to fight
By day they leave no trace
In all the roles they tried to fill
They never saw the fool
Who put them all to shame

CHORUS:
If I could fly
Fly in the face
I'll find you there
Breath deep in the vapour trails
If I could try
Try to break free
I'll find you there
Breathing deep in the vapour trails

Put the pieces in their place
Body twisted into shape
It's always been the same
But I'm alone in all I do
I get no help from you
My work is done in vain

CHORUS repeat

Breathing words upon the glass
In a mist their meaning lost
I want to call your name
Track Name: Swept up by Sunlight
Thrown away Oh so many things I didn't say
Time delay All my experiences seem this way

v.1
Picture a scene where your heart runs in
Swathes of green and flowing golden
Hungry light lifting you
Through a swell of memory
To a time when you were young

v.2
Clutch at the straws that you can't quite reach
Grasping fleeting shapes that meet
Deep inside their tearing teeth
An endless spiral you can feel
Somewhere you've lost your way


Wind whips past and you know this can't last
Search for home But still I find myself here alone

v.3
Through all these years so many tears
A crashing flood of memory
Sweeps frozen features frozen dreams
Shattered shards that's all they seem
A wealth of wasted time

v.4
If I could fly through all I see
I reach the ones that matter to me
He's waiting there he's always been
Arms outstretched and welcoming
And I know that I've come home
Track Name: A Different Story
v.1
Two out of three ain't bad
Until you're begging for another one
And so I'm starting to grip your hand
You know I'm never gonna let you run
It's not that I'm hoping to hold you back
I'd never try to keep you under my thumb
Well, not as such...

So hide those glances at strangers like you hide those scars
You said that you were mine...

CHORUS:
...but inside your head, A Different Story,
another life to lead
That's what you want: your "freedom" - how boring! -
well, it isn't what you need

v.2
So I'm the best that you've ever had?
You call me on the telephone
("hello, it's me again")
Making like you're so sad
You're to-and-froing like a metronome (to/fro/to/fro)
Is it that you're trying to drive me mad?
Yeah, so then you won't be feeling so alone.

I've seen you starting to run dear: you won't get far.
You said that you were mine

CHORUS repeat
Track Name: This is the Manifesto [Bonus track]
Communication started long ago
Information from the radio
Stand in line just like a domino
Catch the signals with the aerial
Pass them through the filter envelope
I can hear the sound in embryo
Now we must concoct the antidote
This will be our Manifesto
Track Name: Florian und Magalie (long lost demo) [Bonus track]
I'll meet you at the station
Platform number four
There's nothing here to keep me anymore

I started feeling crazy
So many years ago
(Back in 1984?)
Ever since I let my baby go

Speeding through the tunnels
Changing at Cologne
Leave behind the safety of my home

But it's you and me together
You and me alone
The two of us forever on the run

(Florian... Magalie...)

Florian and Magalie
I don't know what's wrong with me
Florian and Magalie
Do they know what's wrong with me?
Wrong with me.
Florian and Magalie
