Beth Orton

Beth Orton (born Elizabeth Caroline Orton, 14 December 1970) is a BRIT Award–winning English singer-songwriter, known for her 'folktronica' sound, which mixes elements of folk and electronica. She was initially recognised for her collaborations with William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers in the mid 1990s. However, these were not Orton's first recordings. She had released a solo album, Superpinkymandy, in 1993. Since the album was only released in Japan, it went largely unnoticed by international audiences. Her second solo album, Trailer Park, garnered much critical acclaim in 1996.

Now your sitting on a Paris train laughing at your own jokes again
Sun splits the trees into beautiful broken light
Never cry more tears than you could hold in your hands
When all the world´s airbrushed it´s a sacred bond of trust
Sometimes, sometimes I see right through the scenery
The first place that´s on my mind the last place I find each time
Sometimes, I swim beyond the scenery
The last place that´s on my mind
The first place I find each time

Now I´m sitting on a Paris train molten ash falls like rain
Fire burns the trees it´s a beautiful fatality
Love the way you stand your ground sea moves as mercury
To break its perfect skin to dare to dive within

Sometimes, sometimes I see much more than is good for me
The first thing that´s on my mind the last place I´d look each
time
Sometimes, I slip inside the imagery and
The last thing that´s on my mind´s
The first thing I´ll do each time

Stars racing to burn out
Just stars racing to burn out
A storm waiting to break
Like trees standing black against the sky
This was inevitable, inevitable
Sometimes, sometimes we can see beyond our history
The last place you hope to find the one that´s been there all
the time
Sometimes, sometimes we can swim beyond the scenery
And the first place that´s on your mind
The first place you´d find each time
