Moloko – Sing it Back

Sing It Back” is a song written and performed by Moloko (Róisín Murphy and Mark Brydon). It first appeared in its original version on Moloko’s second album, I Am Not a Doctor. The song experienced chart success after it was remixed by DJ Boris Dlugosch. Murphy had started writing the lyrics while clubbing in New York City,[1] and knew the song was at heart a dance track, but the group wanted to record it in a different artistic fashion for its album version. Together with their record company they had commissioned mixes by Todd Terry (who had turned Everything But the Girl’s “Missing” into an international club anthem). Moloko weren’t satisfied with the Terry mix and had to convince their label Echo Records to put out the Boris D. version instead. The remixed version was eventually featured on over 100 compilations, and was later added on Moloko’s third album Things to Make and Do after hitting the top ten in the UK singles chart. In 1999 it reached number one on the U.S. dance chart. As a form of barter for the remix, Moloko vocalist Róisín Murphy later co-wrote and appeared on Boris D.’s “Never Enough” single, starring in the video for that release as well. Wikipedia®.

Moloko – Sing it Back Lyrics:
When you are ready I will surrender take me and do as you wish.
Have what you want your way’s always the best way.
I have succumbed to this passive sensation peacefully falling away.
I am a zombie your wish will command me, laugh as I fall to my knees.

Can I control this empty delusion lost in the fire below?.
And you come running your eyes will be open.
And when you come back I’ll be as you want me, only so eager to please.
My little song will keep you beside me thinking your name as I sing.

Sing it back to me.
Sing it back to me.

Now you can’t help it if you have been tempted by fruit hanging ripe on the tree.
And I feel useless don’t care what the truth is you will be here come the day.
Truth do you hear me? Don’t try to come near me. So tired, I sleep through the light.
If you desire to lay here beside me come to my sweet melody.

Sing it back to me.

Bring it back, sing it back.
Bring it back, sing it back to me.
Bring it back, sing it back.
Bring it back, sing it back to me.

Sing it, sing it.
Sing it back to me.

Bring it back, sing it back.
Bring it back, sing it back to me.
Bring it back, sing it back.
Bring it back, sing it back to me.
