Song of the Day #3,779: ‘The Wire (Live)’ – Haim

Our next Bing Lounge performance comes courtesy of the Los Angeles-based Haim sisters: Este, Danielle and Alana.

I don’t love everything Haim does but I really like their style (musically and otherwise) and the whole Southern California art school vibe they exude.

‘The Wire’ is one of their better songs, and here they deliver a fantastic live version, with each sister getting a chance to shine vocally and musically.

You know I’m bad at communication
It’s the hardest thing for me to do
And it’s said it’s the most important part
That relationships go through
And I gave it all away just, so I could say that well
I know I know I know I know
That you’re gonna be okay anyway

You know there’s no rhyme or reason for the way you turned out to be
I didn’t go and try to change my mind, not intentionally
I know it’s hard to hear me say it, but I can’t bear to stay and
I just know I know I know I know
That you’re gonna be okay anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight
Don’t let your mind retire
But I just couldn’t take it
I tried hard not to fake it but
I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire

It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire

No need to use your imagination
Try and make it what you want it to be
Because I’m sorry I did what I did
But it came naturally
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
I know I know I know I know
That you’re gonna be okay anyway

When I tried to keep myself together
After all the opportunities
I tried to stay true to you
And I tried to do what you wanted from me
And I gave it all away just to hear you say that
Well I know I know I know I know
That you’re gonna be okay anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight
Don’t let your mind retire
But I just couldn’t take it
I tried hard not to fake it but
I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire

It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire

Always keep your heart locked tight
Don’t let your mind retire
Always keep your heart locked tight
Don’t let your mind retire
But I just couldn’t take it
I tried hard not to fake it but
I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire
But I just couldn’t take it
I tried hard not to fake it but
I fumbled it when it came
Down to the wire

It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it
Came down to the wire
It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it
Came down to the wire

It felt right (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it
Came down to the wire
Yeah (right)
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it
Came down to the wire

It felt right (it felt right)
It felt right (it felt right)
It felt right
But I fumbled it when it
Came down to the wire
The end

    Sometimes, including on this song, Haim gets a bit too repetitive, but I generally like their sound, at least from the relatively limited amount I’ve heard.
