A cover of 'Please Tell Mother by The Telescopes. From the second studio album released in 1992 on Creation Records. We had the pleasure of recording this cover for the tribute record "Anticipating Nowhere, a homage to the Telescopes" for TBTCI Records of Brazil. You can enjoy the full tribute record here:


You lift and you dive
My oh my... you should not levitate me
You should not waste a sigh for me
You may never catch your breath
And you may breathe less out of me
And may you almost touch the warmth that you provide in me

Please tell mother this

I'm surfacing to you
It just reminds me of what I'm living for
We move like children think sometimes
And the way it feels today
Will be the way it feels for always
Just like falling backwards to the wind

Please tell mother this
