Mr. Little Jeans – Rescue Song (RAC Mix)

Posted by Will on May 17, 2013

I’ve been bumping this all day and really dig it for the funky, danceable sound and charming lyrics about a girl + guy who meet up at a time of mutual need:

My dress is torn, you have a black eye 
you got from a giving kind
but your coat is big and I am warm
I’ll ask if I can walk you home
grey like the gravel under our shoes
the sky doesn’t clarify
simple is something of a mystery
no longer making sense to me
got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you’ve a reason and so have I, it’s true
I’m gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous
I got my best dress on
and you’ve a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me, 
and me you
I am the heat in an empty room 
the cold coming through the walls
your sofas’ old, but I am new
and there is better on the brew
my breath is soft, your hands are unlocked
un-manned and un-vertical
I feel strings without the black n blues
a weekend in a weekdays shoes
got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you’ve a reason and so have I, it’s true
I’m gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous
I got my best dress on
and you’ve a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me 
and me you
The song is by the curiously named “Mr. Little Jeans” and remixed by Portland based RAC. A “weekend in a weekdays shoes,” indeed.
