King Creosote & Jon Hopkins “Bubble”

One of The Hobbledehoy’s favorite songs ever, performed by King Creosote and Jon Hopkins, from their brilliant 2011 album Diamond Mine. Lyrics below.

[Chorus]
I won’t let you fall, as low as I’ve been
I promise to crawl until I’m back on my feet
If something were wrong, do you think I’d leave?
If something went wrong, don’t you know I’d be here?

[Verse 1]
So who’s been unfair, Who causes you sorrow?
And who’s been unkind, Who burst you bubble?
And who drags you down, down, down, down?
Who handed out lines? And now I’m in trouble

[Verse 2]
I’ll leave you to grieve, tear over my letters
And frenzy the page, rainsquall in all weather
You’ll rue your regrets but rub out the present
Hurl abuse at the world, heap scorn upon treasure

[Chorus]
I won’t let you fall, as low as I’ve been
I promise to crawl until I’m back on my feet
If something were wrong, do you think I’d leave?
If something went wrong, don’t you know I’d be here?


And what about the amazing and beautiful animation?
