New Leonard Song?

Postby Cihan » Thu Mar 16, 2017 1:54 am

My girlfriend sent me an audio recording from BBC I player when a trailer for a show called Clique came on, and it sounded exactly like Leonard. The lyrics were something like "No one gets to get this close " and "Fit right in where I was needed most" but I've never heard a Leonard song with these lyrics. The voice just sounds uncannily similar.

Hopefully someone can shed some light. I checked all over the net and cannot find this trailer.

Hi Cihan,

I think you are correct- I am sure it is Leonard and part of a new song.
I think the lyrics are...

"No one gets this close
you told me
Fill right in when
I was needed most.
Oh Yeah , to (why?)
Anticipate and cover me."


here is the link to the trailer

Thanks Foxwood!

Very interesting to see that it's a new song, and the music sounds very different to what I'd expect. Hopefully we'll hear more news soon.

Hopefully Jarkko can confirm if it is from the R&B recordings, or left over from another session such as You Want It Darker :)

Try using a VPN if you're outside of the UK, althought not "Hola" as it's supposed to be pretty nasty..

Let's hope someone can make it easier to access somehow :-)

audio record and cut from that trailer

No one gets to get this close
you told me to fit right in
where I was needed most
two yet to wait
and anticipate
uncommonly

I'm not sure about the last three lines

I pushed this song to my WeChat LC channel and one of subscribers finds out that this is a song from a Canadian band called July Talk. The name of this song is Touch. The voice is from Peter Dreimanis, the band lead singer.

No one gets to get this close
You told me to fit right in
Where I was needed most

We had to wait, anticipate and come of age

We had to keep each other in a cage
On the stage, on the stage, on the stage
Don't want to give myself away too much
Touch

There's no good way to say goodbye
We got everything to lose, nothing to hide
Got to give and take and give and take
It's best to save all you crave for the stage

We get so tired and lonely
We all need a human touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
Touch
Touch

I want to make some space underneath my skin
Cut me open, I can let you in
Should I let myself be torn in two?
And will you give into that side of you?

We get so tired and lonely
We need a human touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
Touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
Touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
Touch

We get so tired and lonely
We need a human touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
Touch

We get so tired and lonely
We need a human touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
T-t-t-touch

We get so tired and lonely
Screaming out for your touch
Don't want to give ourselves away too much
T-t-t-t-t-t-touch
Don't want to give myself away too much
T-t-touch (Screaming out for your touch)
Don't want to give myself away too much
Touch
Don't want to give myself away too much
T-t-t-t-t-t-touch
Don't want to give myself away too much
Touch

I think it was wishful thinking on my part. I am sorry for raising everyone's hopes of a new song.
My only defence is that Phillip was fooled too!

Thanks for the info.
Interesting lyrics but not Leonard singing it then.
