Fall on me and I’ll catch you, cos I’ve Invested everything in you I want to die by your side, I want to die by your side I want to die by your side Tides will untie us Storms will divide us But it’s just weather outside us Cause we are the earth and the trees We are the earth and the trees We are the rocks underneath Our conversations entwined us, till we Copied each other inside us, now No force can ever divide us I want to die by your side, I want to die by your side I want to die by your side Saw the gold in the treetops, then we’re Coalescing like raindrops Falling down on the rooftops, with Saturated feelings of a, soft explosion in a Soul warming river of sun Fall on me and I’ll catch you, cos I’ve Entrusted everything in you I want to die by your side, I want to die by your side I want to die by your... I want to die by your side I want to die by your side Your moonface glows in your iPhone I know you so well you’re my home Our roots are crossing over Green shoots like starting over Your moonface glows like the moon
Summer Wind 02:05
The summer wind, came blowin' in from across the sea It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand Two sweethearts and the summer wind Like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flyin' by The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky Then softer than a piper man one day it called to you I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind The autumn wind and the winter winds, they have come and gone And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end My fickle friend, the summer wind The summer wind Warm summer wind Mmm, the summer wind

► Watch the official video-clip of "I Want To Die By Your Side":

The second and last album of THE MAGIC THEATRE to date, “The Long Way Home”, is from over two years ago. They say time flies, but here at Elefant we refuse to accept such a premise, and that’s why we are bringing back what is probably our favorite song from that album “I Want To Die By Your Side”, releasing its well-deserved video and a digital single.

“I Want To Die By Your Side” is a hyper melodic song with those delicate string arrangements and that intense emotional power. In the video by Chris Croft (his third for THE MAGIC THEATRE), the romanticism of the group – consisting of Dan Popplewell and Sophia Churney – is made clear, among candles, dim lights, feathers, and the moon, all photographed in black and white, and with a certain halo of mystery.

And, as a gift, there is a previously unreleased track; the “B side” has an acoustic version of “Summer Wind”, recorded by Sophia with her ukulele. The song was originally composed in Germany in 1965 by Heinz Meier, ultimately adapted into English by Johnny Mercer, and made popular by Wayne Newton and, primarily, Frank Sinatra. It’s brittle, intimate, and once again hugely romantic, but that kind of romanticism that is forgotten, glamorous, elegant, subtle, and overwhelming. While we continue to wait for new songs, songs like “I Want To Die By Your Side” will continue to brighten and illuminate us.
