Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Franz Ferdinand

This week’s award goes to the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand, and the feature song is one which doesn’t get enough attention, and is in my view their best song, Come On Home.

Although my lover lives
In a place that I can’t live
I kind of find I like a life this lonely
It rips and pierces me
In places I can’t see
I love the rip of nerves
The rip that wakes me
So I’m dissatisfied
I love dissatisfied
I love to feel there’s always more that I need

So come on home
So come on home
So come on – home home

You’re where you want to be
I’m where I want to be
Come on we’re chasing everything we’ve ever wanted
Replace you easily
Replace pathetically
I flirt with every flighty thing that falls my way
But how I needed you
When I needed you
Let’s not forget
We are so strong
So bloody strong

Come on home
So come on home
So come on – home home

Blue light falls upon your perfect skin
Falls and you draw back again
Falls and this is how I fell
And I cannot forget
And I cannot forget

Come on home
So come on home
But don’t forget to ring
