the swedish house it made no sense at all this broken heart will never mend at all tiny hearts will haunt you down

eyes where no words are just dancing like children with no care at all a pair pact in magic & fate laden thinking to vanquish the bores I was prepared to believe love was something that science and cynics had no place in mocking but love will frustrate you life will frustrate you time after time after life after time this fan will need fanning the oxygen blocking will turn blood to coal i thought you were in me i thought this was something to better them all I was prepared to believe love was something... i once had a sense of who i should be and who i'd accompany i'd lost who i was & what i could be with others but lonely I was prepared to believe love was something... I was prepared to believe love was something... I was prepared to remove every something that stops me from winning a world full of wonder but love will frustrate you life will frustrate you time after time after life after time

she plays a harlots game her friends are just the same reveals the devil's call against her rocks we fall she plays a harder game her friends are just the same reveals the devils call with painted nails they're torn see how they play over new wounds & old scars she plays a harder game her friends are just the same reveals the devils call with painted nails they're torn she plays a harder game her friends are just the same

the history of you offends the mystery of you I tend to overcome my natural guard & flounder at your charms becoming the secret of seeing you the mystery of passing through to places in my soul i guard i flounder at your charms becoming this dark is your soul the concrete life you bind me to i'm now a man without a history so who are you now i'm ready to bare my soul i'm ready to share my soul the secret inside that's you a darkness i'm working through to exercise my inner truth] i flounder to myself becoming am image that's sometimes true a truth that is partial to eyes a mask I dare to wear the worms of life will eat me hollow this dark is your soul
6.
pocketbooks of butterflies makes the most of crying eyes pocketbooks of butterflies makes the most of crying eyes catch a rainbow catch a raindrop catch a memory she can fix my broken wing she can make fly again every word like summer song came from good to fix my wrong

freezing 03:28
why in the world would you do that? mine is the soul you are taking mine is the life you are breaking so you pretend I am no one invent a disguise for your feelings once you you were warm, now your freezing once there was us, now i'm grieving
8.
time makes good sense of all i've seen the best and worst of everyone a world of folk impure whoever said they'd rule for all - they lied show your heart shy to boast i can see your soul within you let them pass power fuelled they would steal our legs to stand so tall i'd slit their smirking grins the psychopathic bastards bred to rule entitlement i'd take that silver spoon and mill a blade to purge their evil heart show your heart..
9.
not evermore 02:25
My body broken A trophy token Esteem that’s stolen Unrobed My sex awoken My body broken You on a pedestal Like Art on wall I loved you once Things die Things die I loved you once I loved you once Not evermore My soul My soul is broken My pain unfrozen My heart My heart is broken My death awoken You on a pedestal… We were children chasing dreams Like Butterflies Golden summers sound-tracked gold Like lullabies Like lullabies Like our goodbye Like our goodbye You on a pedestal…
10.
the time we feared has come the time we feared has come the goodbye moment the goodbye moment what legacy will you leave what legacy will i leave the goodbye moment the goodbye moment a scar i'l always wear a scar i'll always bear your goodbye moment your goodbye moment it's very painful to love someone and not be in love to cherish and adore as passion ebbs away like blood from a wound to realise that the future once is now the past
11.
please don't think this thing was love we surely sullied all that's love the less i think of you i'm fine the less i see of you smile how could such treachery be love it's true in front of you i'd sway so please forget the things i say i throw those words without regard and now the youth in you i've scarred i'll take my place in hell i guess you'll forget me

about

melancholia is the definitive new album from beautiful mechanica - focussing on the band's catalogue of beautiful, yet melancholic songs. featuring three previously unreleased tracks, a new vocal version of another and 7 remixed and remastered tracks from 2018's "This Hotel Has Ghosts" album.

"there is something of that ethereal, ghostlike, otherworldly quality that emanates from beautiful mechanica. they are a band who find solace in sadness and fully grasp the bittersweet nature of life.
beautiful mechanica's world is the threshold between consciousness and sleep, it's a musical hypnagogia that transports you to an esoteric plane”

peter dennis, pulse magazine


beautiful mechanica's music fuses synthesis and analogue with beauty and dark romanticism.
beautiful mechanica are resolute in being unaffected by the sounds and styles of any given time - be it now or the past.
Whilst those who love the electronica of new wave and the new romantics will find much to feel at home with, the songs are as contemporary as they revivalist - the ambition being only that each is as unique and affecting as possible.

beautiful mechanica are graham sampson (writer, singer, programming, guitars & keys), grace bailey-hinks (piano, voice) & van naarden (guitars)
